Seriously, we all tend to get into our daily routines and forget to ask questions. Instead, we try to “get things done” or find solutions to problems.
I think it was Einstein who said “If I had one hour to solve a problem, I would spend 55 minutes on finding the right question to ask, and 5 minutes to find the answer to this question.”
Studies show that children ask over ten times more questions than adults do.Why is this the case? Subconsciously, to grow. Asking questions means learning, means growing, means getting to new levels. In other words, when we stop asking questions, we stop growing.
Here is my suggestion: By today, ask more questions to yourself, your colleagues, your team members. Asking questions differs from questioning things or people.
Here comes the caveat: most people forgot how to ask insightful questions that direct us to good solutions. Here is a simple relation: poor questions lead to poor answers. Good questions lead to good answers.
As part of my coaching, I often “shadow” my client and observe him or her during interactions with others. By this, we uncover the question patterns and improve them – with significant effects on influence and success. Interested? Just >>> click here <<< to set up a short phone conversation learn more.
