Asking Questions Opens Doors
“Asking questions will get you the performance
you are after far better than dictating demands.”
As I see it. . . . . . . .
Asking question opens doors
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 showing sincere interest in the person that your are speaking with.
In response to asking questions you form a relationship with the person and build rapport.
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 communications, relationships, and negotiations breakdown.
Making demands can also jeopardize a relationship . . . . and close the door on future opportunities.
As you continue to ask questions you gather information. When that information is properly utilized you are seen as a problem solver.
As a problem solver, you help the other person and you gain momentum that continuously moves you in the direction of our goals and objectives.
Asking questions opens doors . . . . builds rapport . . . . and increases your performance and places you in a win – win situation.
