Why Ask?


 

Asking questions:

  • Provides more information
  • Eliminates confusion
  • Guides conversation
  • Shows interest

 

 

Generating your own questions will also demonstrate your ability to absorb and process new information – the more detailed the better!

Be Polite


 

It is important to always be respectful when asking questions of others.

Although you may disagree with something, remaining calm and thoughtful will result in a better conversation and learning experience.

 

For example:

 

  • “Would you mind…”
  • “I love that idea, but…?”
  • “Please could you…?”

 

Remember they have taken the time to communicate with you, so ensure that you are being considerate.
