It’s stunning how it works.
You ask a question…and people are compelled to answer it.
Even if their guard is up, as mine was when I was being interviewed by an ABC reporter,
She engaged me emotionally and the interview went her way from that point on…
What I wanted to say, was never heard…or shown.
Just the my answer to her question, which is exactly where she wanted me to go.
You ask a question and you interrupt all manner of hallowed, mostly unchallenged processes,
Meetings of all levels…
Every-day, garden varieties of conversations…
So, may I ask you a question?
What is the specific reason you want to know about the power of a question?
I’d love to know.
