Asking Questions . . . . Gives You Insight

“Asking questions with a purpose becomes a gateway to

 gathering information and a better understanding of

    the person that your speaking to.”

Lou Ludwig Sales and Management Consultant,

Success Coach, Speaker, Trainer and Author

 

 

 

 

As I see it. . . . . . . .

Asking question . . . .  gives you insight

 

Asking questions give you insight to the person that you’re speaking with . . . . and makes the person feel important.

 

Asking questions is a sign of respect . . . . and shows sincere interest in the person that your are speaking with.

 

In response to asking questions you form a relationship with the person and become the gateway to building rapport with them.

 

Rapport opens the door for continuous exchange of information . . . . and communication.

 

When you make demands of people often this can shut off open . . . . and honest communication with the other person. As a result they may feel threatened . . . . angry . . . . or both. From that point forward the communications . . . . the relationship . . . . and negotiations will breakdown.

 

Making demands can also jeopardize a relationship . . . . and close the door on future opportunities with that person.

 

As you continue to ask questions you gather information and insight. You will find that when the information is properly utilized you are seen as a problem solver. 

 

As a problem solver . . . . you help the other person. Gain forward momentum that continuously moves you in the direction of achieving your goals and objectives.

 

Asking questions . . . . gives you insight to opening doors . . . . builds rapport . . . . and increases your performance and will help you to create a win – win situation.

I agree, I tend to ask a lot of questions.

You learn by asking and not talking.

People like to be asked and then for us to remain quiet as they answer. It is also how we can get to know people better.

Good morning Lou.  A person who can ask lots of questions and is quiet for the response is considered a great communicator.  Knowing how to ask meaningful questions is one of the most valuable skills in learning.
