I like to ask them what they know about the project that they didn't know 6
months ago. Its always true that you know something that you wished you
knew then. It quite revealing about the level of direct information and
honesty. Straight shooters usually say that they know lots that they didn't
know 6 months ago. Evaders and passive-aggressive types don't look at me
after I ask the question. They say that everything is above board and
proceeding on schedule or something like that. That's when I know the job
is going to take longer and (usually) cost more money.
Best Always,
Lorraine
