There’s no such thing as the right question, of course, but some enquiries contribute more to moving things on than others.
It’s worth thinking about…
What’s your intention when you ask a question – helping things along in the direction they need to go in for the benefit of everyone, or making a point to enhance your position?
Both have their place, I suppose.
It’s good to be clear about your aim.
And if it’s to move things on, there’s a skill in asking just the right question to pick things up where they are and carry them on to the next step.
How well do you do that?
