5 Keys to asking Powerful Questions

The more powerful the question, the more complete the answer. In our world of lightening fast communication, decision making and problem solving, asking the right questions can mean the different between getting a complete or partial answer.  So how do we ask powerful questions? 1. Know the Difference.   There are several types of questions. Closed questions elicit a simple response such as a Yes/No answer.  For example: Will Sriram be on the call today? (Yes or No). How is your day going? (short response usually fine or good). Open questions are broad and require more thought.  For example: Where do you see things going from here?  What is your background? Powerful questions, on the other hand, hone in to elicit a much more thought out response.  They deepen thinking, hone in, are not so easy to answer and keep the conversation going; they look underneath what’s really happening.  For example:  What two steps can you take towards achieving your goal?  What is the most important lesson you learned from this experience? Check out this 2-minute video of Pris Nelson, sharing her tips on Powerful Questions. 2.  Use powerful questions when you want to get to the root of what the other person is saying.   Carefully think about the question you want to ask and how you can hone in.  Rather than saying, “what did you learn from this experience (too broad), you can ask what are the two most important lessons you learned? or you could ask “What are the two things you would do differently next time?”  These types of questions then allow you to drive the...
