how would this work out better for her 0 Exception question a little bit of something has worked 0 Tell me about HOW it would be different 0 How d you make this different happen Answer then change and ask how again Continue asking how she would go about making the miracle continue to work Pointing out that it39s not easy but she did it 0 Things on a scale of 110 0 How con dent are you that you can have another good day How d you make this Difference Happen This is a very common question 0 We can see this in many different forms OpenEnded Questions This allows the client to open up and talk a lot more than usual Give reasonable goals moving her con dence from a 5 to a 6 This is something that seems within the clients reach Don39t create a lens of a judgment about someone You have to be
