Asking questions is one of the most important aspects of interpersonal relations, but how you ask them is even more important. Asking questions is a communication skill, and like other such skills it improves with practice and training. That, along with some common sense rules, is really all you need to master the skill. This Video On Demand, featuring television personality John O’Hurley, gives you training on the ability to ask questions properly.

It is said some of the most important types of questions are actually commands disguised as questions. However, regardless of the information you wish to present there are certain key elements of question asking you need to understand. These elements include inflection, phrasing, and timing, among others. How you employ these elements may either help or hurt the person to whom you are asking the question. Ultimately, your goal is to help your team, and this can only be done when you understand the proper ways in which to ask your questions.

Utilize the information presented here and master the elements and skills necessary for asking questions.
