This is a quick read about how to get past your advice monster and start asking better questions. Learning how to be curious and ask questions has potential applications professionally and personally. It’s from the guy who wrote The Coaching Habit (more about that another time).
So why don’t people ask good questions? It’s really not that it hasn’t occurred to them to do so, or that they don’t understand the benefits. Rather, people have spent a lifetime being rewarded for not asking questions, and for instead focusing on having the answers
I’d suggest you all read it and start thinking about how you can build it into your daily life, but that would mean I’m giving in to my advice monster. Maybe I should ask a question instead? I’m still learning about how to do this myself.
