Questioning Techniques Appraisal
All of us use questions every day, whether it is at work, home or play.  To gain the information, response or outcome that you want effectively you need to consciously apply appropriate kinds of questions.

 “When you are managing people, one of the greatest timesavers is asking questions – more specifically, asking the right questions.”
                                                                                                         Jim Rohn in “Seven Strategies for Wealth and Happiness.”

 Asking questions is a fundamental communication skill for leaders, to find out information, solve problems, establish better working relationships, persuade, motivate, interview or negotiate.  How effective is it to solve a problem or issue than by simply asking the person who knows the answer?  Asking effective questions is not easy.  How a question should be asked, what question should be asked and when a question should be asked are important aspects in questioning technique.

  This appraisal has been designed as a self-appraisal of a person’s questioning ability.  However, it can be effectively used to determine the questioning techniques of other supervisors or managers and identify areas for improvement.
