The Executive - May/June 2017 - 7

I find that I get more useful
answers when instead I ask things
like:
* What were you thinking about
when you did x?
* What factors did you consider
when making that decision?
* What was going on for you around
that time?
* What did it feel like to be in that
situation?
* What other people or events
contributed to the situation?
Notice that these questions
are all open-ended - yes or no
questions tend to shut down
dialogue. No matter the question, it
must be asked in a spirit of inquiry
and understanding - any hint
of judgment in the questioner's
demeanor can trigger defensiveness
or a lack of cooperation on the part of
the person being questioned.
