A powerful question will stop us in our tracks. It will demonstrate that the asker is listening deeply to us. It will deepen our own best thinking and invite us to see our situation with a fresh perspective. In a world where talking the loudest and unfailingly asserting our viewpoint is modeled in the highest levels of leadership, asking questions offers an antidote.
The quality of the conversations we have comes from the quality of the questions we ask. This is true of how we connect and speak with ourselves and how we connect and speak with others. In today’s podcast, we offer practical tips for how to hone the craft of question-asking. Learn key distinctions in the types of questions you can ask and how you can put your question-asking skills to use in personal reflection, in 1-on-1 conversations, and in group facilitation.
