How can you bring empathy to your team? Asking “How are you?” sometimes is just not enough.Check in, ask questions, take cues.

Break the “I’m fine” barrier with these questions:

– What is something that made you happy today?
– If you could change one thing that happened today, what would it be?
– Is there anything I can do to help you now or at another time?
– What’s the highlight of your week so far?
– How are you taking care of yourself today?
– What problem do you wish you could solve right now?
– What helps you unlock your creativity?
– In what ways are you managing your work-life balance at the moment?
