Good questions to ask in a conversation with a powerless or controlling person

Danny Silk

Staying powerful in the presence of a powerless person—someone who is driven by fear, acting like a victim, and trying to feel powerful by controlling others—can be a challenge, especially when the person is someone we care deeply about. When the person comes to us with their problems, it is all too easy to comply with their fear-driven agenda and start trying to build solutions for them. Instead, we must stay powerful and shift the conversation by inviting them to be powerful too. In this vlog, I share a few key points for how to do this.
