Have you ever considered that they way you start a question impacts the quality of the answer?
Way back in high school I picked up the moniker "The Why Kid" from my technical theater director. As we would prepare to design & build a theater set I would constantly be in his ear curious about why we were building / painting / decorating it one way and not another. My intention was always to learn and not to undermine, even as some might have taken my questions in a less positive light.
As I've grown as a professional and a coach, I've become more aware that how we phrase questions impacts how we move forward.
