Tip #3. Choose your Questions Wisely
Asking irrelevant questions can make your audience suspicious and/or lose trust in you. Clearly explaining why you are asking a question helps remove the potential for confusion or mistrust. The following will help you provide this clarity to your audience.
- Why am I asking this question?
- How will I apply the information I receive from this question?
- What do I need to say to communicate my goal in asking this question?
