Interviewing Tips

  • Ask about the context (who, when, where, how).
     
  • Do not share your own experience.
     
  • Collect the details of the journey (barriers, actions, surprises, reversals, discoveries),
     
  • Try to find a moment that sums up the drama and the deeper meaning.
     
  • Listen carefully, so you can re-tell the highlights.
