A Follow-Up Blog Written By: Debbie Pearce, Founder of Pearce Communications Group, LLC.
A well-posed question can unlock a conversation, opening up thoughts, meaning and two-way dialogue. Take a moment to consider how many questions you ask (and answer) during an average day at work. For many of us, it’s the primary way we seek and share information.
The Definity Partners Blog recently commented that the tone of a question is just as important as the question itself. To add to this thought, I also recommend considering the intentions that lie behind the questions we ask. My daughter, Lane, a Learning and Development professional, explored this very topic in a recent article on our blog, Generally Speaking. I encourage you to read her article and reflect on your own “questionable” habits.
