Asking Questions

Like listening, asking is an underutilized social skill in business and in life. While those who talk the talk are eager to dominate conversations with their arrogant, self-involved opinions, individuals who thoughtfully take a step back to ask about and explore the nub of an issue often stumble across more considerate solutions. Learning how to ask with genuine sincerity can change your outlook and help you to achieve your ambitions in life.
