Instead of asking

What do you want?


What are you trying to achieve?

It helps the asking party (could be yourself):

  • gain clarity
  • rephrase their question
  • (probably) come up with their own solution

From you, it shows:

  • empathy
  • care
  • support
  • trust
  • patience

Try it and see people's reaction.

So, what are you trying to achieve? :)
