Questions are powerful – use them effectively

We ask questions for so many reasons; they help us think, make decisions, make changes, improve, connect, relate and more.
Questions are one of our most powerful tools, yet most of us haven’t learnt how to use them effectively. Even worse, we’re not aware of this.
Which means we’re not asking the right questions or asking questions the right way.
Which means we’re not getting what we need from the questions we’re asking.
