The Value of Asking Questions

Dan Wardby Dan Ward

Great post by Butch Ward (no relation, at least of which I’m aware) at Poynter, advising that newsroom managers would benefit from asking more questions.

Butch’s recommendations are spot on, not just for the newsroom but for virtually any work environment.

We sometimes forget to ask simple questions – “How are you doing?” “How am I doing?” “What do you think we should do?” – that are essential to decision-making.  Ask more, dictate less.  It’s a good lesson for any manager.
