When you ask thoughtful questions you supercharge your conversations. Power questions actually give power to the other person — power to talk about what’s important to them, power to lead the conversation where they want it to go, power to express their thoughts more clearly than ever before.
A good question can get to the heart of the real issue. It helps you understand the other person’s goals and aspirations. It enables the other person to reach their own conclusions. It re frames the problem. It inspires commitment. For example: the simple question “What’s the best way for us to spend this time together?” creates commitment.
