Questioning: Are You Being Heard?



Monday October 25, 2004
7:30 pm to 9:30 pm
University of Guelph


Do you often wonder why your questions don't seem to get properly answered? Do you feel stumped because the responses aren't what you're looking for? Perhaps you're not being heard and the problem lies in your own questioning style. Learning to ask questions in different styles can better enable you to gather the information you need from clients, employees, colleagues and others. Then, you can adapt your questioning style to suit each individual you work with.
