Asking Questions

To acquire knowledge you have to ask questions. The questions can be of someone else or for yourself to find the answers. But asking a question in a business meeting is an art. People that ask good questions tend to drive the conversation toward the goal the asker is seeking. There are many books on the subject available, but I don’t believe the method for asking questions can be learned that way. I think it must be learned through good logic and patience.

Over the next year, the Presidential candidates will answer a myriad of questions. But most of the questions will either be vague enough to answer without any trepidation or focused on matters that don’t really affect anything in the Presidential space.

I think it is important for journalists in the US to ask specific questions and provide a rational behind it. Don’t allow the candidates to sneak away from answering.

About benleeson
My name is Ben Leeson. I currently work for a large financial company in IT. I went to school at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. I graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration concentrating in HR. Professor William Brown taught me and I enjoyed his classes; even acquiring an appreciation for just about all things HR. I didn’t pursue a job in that field after college but I’ve kept up with it. This blog will further my fascination with all things HR. I hope to grow my knowledge of the area through thoughtful writings and spirited feedback. I will attempt to have a fairly routine style so anyone reading can come to expect certain segments. Please excuse my incorrect grammar and occasional misspelling.
