TED talk: What you don't know about questions

Questions have the power to connect us, and they also have the power to separate us. In my recent TED talk, I explain why the key to successful communication is not about asking better questions, but instead about achieving a better balance of questioning and answering.

In the talk, I cover how:

  • NOT asking questions has brought me closer to my teenage son
  • A question from a co-worker did more to adjust my behavior than any instructions from a manager could ever have
  • Questions have the power to change the world

The talk was filmed at TEDx Frederiksberg in the summer of 2019.
