Quality questions allow the other person to think deeply, gather relevant facts and information as well as understand their own motivations and perception in the situation.
The end result is a greater level of awareness, a commitment to achieve and sense of responsibility for the outcome.
There are 2 types of questions:
Requires descriptive answers - promotes awareness and responsibility
- WHAT, WHEN, WHO, HOW MUCH, HOW MANY
Promotes a Yes / No answer - closes the door for deeper exploration and awareness
- DO, WOULD, COULD, SHOULD, ARE, IS, WILL, CAN
