The better question

Welcome to Love Mondays, a weekly newsletter designed as a 3-minute hit to fire up the other 10,077 minutes of your week.

The better question

Asking questions is like going on a treasure hunt: the better the question, the more valuable the answer. How many questions do we ask each day? Are they designed to uncover hidden truths? If we're not truly curious about discovering something new, why ask in the first place?

What's one question you could ask yourself or your team that could lead to a revealing answer? Write it down.

Consider: where you could incorporate more open-ended questoins in your interactions with others.

Practice: approaching every conversation with a sense of curiosity and willingness to learn.

Decide to: start using "what" and "how" questions to unlock a world of possibilities.

Ask better, achieve more

Want to know the secret to unlocking possibilities and driving positive change? It's not having all the answers – it's asking the right questions! And when we ask open-ended questions that keep the ball in play, we invite so much more than just a simple "yes" or "no" response.


When we create space for others to share their thoughts and ideas, we gain valuable insights and perspectives that we might not have otherwise considered. It's like discovering a whole new world of possibilities!


Here are a few examples of open-ended questions that can spark deeper conversations and insights:

  • How can we improve our communication and collaboration?
  • What do you think are some potential challenges we might face with this plan?
  • What does success look like in this scenario?
Better questions, better outcomes. Open-ended inquiries inspire critical thinking, foster collaboration, and drive innovation, taking you and your new team to new heights of success and impact.
