How to ask a more engaging question

How you ask a question can have a big impact on the other person’s engagement with you.

They could be a peer, user or customer.

For example, my wife and I were eating breakfast at a cafe and the owner asked how is everything?

We said fine — end of engagement.

If he had asked for example:

If there is one thing that we could improve in your meal what might that be?

Now this is an engaging question.

In this case both meals had too much salt.

A small change but a big potential impact.

Small wins innovation often starts with an engaging question.

It can also help you generate better, more insightful ideas, solutions and products.
