When You're Stumped in a Meeting, Here's Why You Shouldn't Say 'That's a Great Question'
In my decades of work as a communication and presentation skills coach, I have found most people use the same phrase to do this: "That's a great question." But that's not a great response.
People say "that's a great question" in the same way my Uber driver says, "Have a safe flight," when she drops me at the airport, and I reflexively respond with "You too!" My Uber driver is not taking a flight, so my answer makes no sense.
