How You Ask Questions to Prevent Misunderstandings

Have you ever walked away from a conversation sure the other person understood all the instructions and expectations?

They may have even told you they got it all and understood what you wanted. And only as things are going sideways do you realize that they actually didn’t fully understand what you wanted from them.

I’m sure we’ve all had that experience and it can be exasperating. And as much as we learn from those experiences, it takes a certain skill to guarantee that all the information communicated has be received and understood as intended.

In this episode I have Lynae Remondino back and we’re going to discuss how to ask questions so there are no misunderstandings.
