Questions? Well...I'm Not Sure What To Ask.

Do you have any questions?

What questions do you have?

We all do this. Whether it's a kind gesture, a teaching situation, a closing tactic, etc. its a general practice we all do.

That's the problem, it's too general!  And the main reason why most people respond with, "no questions at this time" is because they are not sure what to ask.

We need to be more specific by giving them memory joggers. Below are some examples of providing memory joggers, guaranteed to generate more questions. (examples are from many different types of situations, business and personal.)

***What questions do you have about:
- cost?
- warranty?
- commissions?
- benefits?
- next steps?
- side effects?
- troubleshooting?
- results?
- the agenda?
- your responsibilities?

I'm sure there are many more, but you get the drift.

Call to action- the next time you ask , "What questions do you have? "
Remember- Specific is Terrific!
