“A question is a magnet… it draws information to you.”
Children love the game of Hide and Seek. They are always curious about their surroundings. If you have been around kids lately, you have most likely been the recipient of a barrage of questions. They are human sponges, hoping to absorb as much information as possible to seek the hidden mysteries of their worlds.
Powerful questions are among the most important tools used by coaches, leaders, managers, parents, and other supportive individuals. Open-ended questions – those which cannot be answered with simple “yes” or “no” – tend to be the most magnetic.
How can you exercise and discover more of your own youthful curiosity to seek and find more answers to life’s most urgent and important questions?
One of my favorite books on this subject is A More Beautiful Question by Warren Berger.
