Business PresentationsThe Q&A SeriesArt of Asking Good Questions

Grow your business with critical thinking skills and by asking the right questions.

The Challenge

Businesses grow when thought-provoking questions are asked at the right time – and when your talents can think critically about problems and solutions. Unfortunately, most meetings and town halls are one-way events – because the audience avoids asking questions.

When critical questions are not asked:
  • Legitimate concerns won’t be addressed on time
  • Decisions lack quality because crucial input is missing
  • Plans miss essential details that affect stakeholders
The reasons why people avoid asking questions include:

01

  • They don’t know how to think about issues on-the-spot when listening to a presentation or when participating in a meeting

02

  • They don’t know how to formulate and verbalise their thoughts clearly

03

  • Fearing that their questions might come out poorly – they’re afraid of looking naive in front of their managers and peers

04

  • They don’t want to alienate senior leaders by questioning their reasoning and authority
