How To Ask Good Questions

Grow and improve your business with critical thinking and the right questions

 

What helps businesses improve and grow as quickly as possible? Critical thinking packaged in thought-provoking questions being asked at the right time. 

Unfortunately, most meetings and town halls are one-way communication events because the audience simply doesn’t ask questions. This is unacceptable for dynamic companies with ambitious growth plans.  

 

Why is it so important that your staff ask critical questions?

When your talents, technical experts and managers remain quiet and don’t add to the discussion, it hurts your organisation. The consequences are ...

  • Legitimate concerns won’t be addressed on time. 
  • Decisions lack quality because crucial input is missing. 
  • Plans miss essential details that affect certain stakeholders. 

Ultimately, your business will move forward much slower than it could be. 

 

What keeps most professionals from asking critical questions? 

We’ve found the common reasons: 

  • They don’t know how to think about the issue on-the-spot when listening to a presentation or participating in a meeting. 
  • They don’t know how to formulate and verbalise their thoughts clearly.
  • They are afraid of looking naive in front of their peers and managers if their question comes out wrong.  
  • They don’t want to alienate senior leaders by questioning their reasoning and authority.

But, what if asking critical questions could become second-nature for your professionals?
