Why Do You Ask?

Questions are a powerful means of exploration and discovery. When you ask or are asked a question, think about its purpose. Is it to…
  • express sincere curiosity?
  • make irrelevant conversation?
  • make a statement (rhetorical)?
  • expose others’ ignorance?
  • pry into the personal lives of others?
How can we be more intentional about the questions we ask to build stronger relationships, organizations, and communities?
