There are tons of books where you can read about power of questions - how they are important, how they can help. Questions are powerful for following reasons:
- demand answers
- stimulate thinking
- give us valuable information
- put us in control
- get people to open up
- lead to quality listening
- get people to sell themselves
Questions also allow you to challenge the status quo and challenge the team. Thatâ€™s why it is so widely used in Retrospectives by Scrum Masters.
Judge a man by his questions rather than his answers. ~ Voltaire
But wait… But should you really question everything? Isnâ€™t there a risk to reach highest level of absurd? “AskingÂ Questions” is the most powerful tool to encourage, challenge and affect people. Be careful!
