Asking good questions.
Sounds a bit simple, doesn’t it? But the ability to ask insightful, effective questions is one skill that will make you better at everything you do.
They wring every bit of value out of each daily interaction, save an enormous amount of time, and also endear you to whoever you’re asking as being genuinely interested and extremely on the ball.
Unfortunately, it’s a skill neglected by most people outside the media industry. Talking too much, posing already assumed questions, accepting airy fairy answers and making conservative queries out of fear of embarrassment are rife.
But that shouldn’t be the case, and certainly doesn’t need to be. Everyone can ask great questions to garner the most out of mentors and mates, colleagues and companies.
