Have you ever found yourself confronted with a difficult question?
Maybe you need time to answer the question, or maybe you don’t know the answer! What if you know the answer, but you don’t want to answer?
Now that can be tough, especially when you’re speaking in front of a group people.
I remember getting asked difficult questions early in my career. If only I were better prepared with phrases to help me feel more confident when responding to them.
That’s why this week, I thought it’d be great to share some phrases to help you respond to difficult questions.
I shared them in our Facebook Live session this week and you can watch it here.
You can also listen to this session on Spotify, Apple Podcasts or Google Podcasts.
I talk about four situations you may face when you are asked a difficult question:
- You need a moment to answer
- You don’t know the answer
- You’re not sure of the answer
- You don’t want to answer
You can memorise some of these phrases and practise saying them out loud so that you sound natural. I hope you’ll use them the next time you’re asked a difficult question!
