Using the power of asking questions as a tool has been one of my best assets. Yet, one of the biggest challenges I see among many is their inability to ask questions.
WE DON'T ASK QUESTIONS EVEN WHEN
We are confused
We need more information
We need help
We want to participate
We see something is wrong
We are lost
QUESTIONS ARE POWERFUL because they
Help engage with one another
Deepen our focus on thinking
Create friction, which forms meaningful relationships
Open up our mind
But somehow, we have convinced ourselves that culturally it is often inappropriate or discouraged to ask questions while we are breaking hundred other cultural obligations every other day.
Failing to ask questions cost us a lot. Having the courage to ask questions can unlock treasure chests.
What's holding you back?
