Heather Angel: So in heartbeat, when you first join, as there are questions that you can ask a member when they join. These are not like required, but everybody has different questions. These are just get ideas going for you. And so tell us a fun fact about yourself that one just You know, it gets everybody thinking and laughing and that.
What's your go to karaoke or a shower song, or your favorite genre your favorite song that kind of thing. I am going to call out Nina, she I've said this before and other sessions but she, when I first joined her. Course she had an online, like a cohort course. And I first had my one on one, one of the questions that she had previously asked me was what was my favorite song.
And when I came into that one on one, my favorite song was playing. And my favorite song is very bizarre. And I knew that she probably had never heard it before. So I was like, how in the world did she know? Is this, she knows my song. And it gave me that camaraderie with her immediately.
And we were both dancing and it just set the whole meeting up to be a really fun experience which. It was fun. Anyway, but that kind of put it over the edge and it's something that I've taught ever since because it was so memorable. Something like that if you know something is in your, for specifically relevant to your community.
Then go ahead and put that kind of a question in, and then use it later on. I did, these are questions that I have in my community, and one of the things that, and I know some of the people in here are members, so don't cheat, but I am going to, in the future, sometime in the near future, I'm going to have a game at the beginning of one of our office hours, and they have to match who they think the song is to.
So which person they think the song is to and so that's how I'm going to use that. So just get creative and, find ways to use the information that you're gathering in future sessions. How would you like to contribute to the community. Now are there any specific skills or talents you would like to share now the reason that I asked this question is because when we join a community.
It's typically because we want something from that community. But what I also want to train my people to my members to do is to think about how they can also contribute. I don't want it to be me teaching and talking all of the time. I don't want them to be just me you know grabbing for everything I want them to also contribute.
Because that's actually what gives and makes a great community. So when you have that back and forth of your members actually interacting and giving value, they then get value in return, and that becomes an invaluable experience. So that is really specifically the reason I asked that question. And then of course, you want to know why they joined the community.
What do they want out of it? And how can you best support them in achieving your goals or interests? So just some examples of questions to ask and whether you make those visible or not is up to you.
