Stop Investigating & Start Advancing

How many times have you been the recipient of a stream of questions before the person even shut up long enough for you to answer?

Or maybe a person asked you a series of yes/no questions that came across condescending (as if you didn't know any better?!)

Every single time I've helped a leader recognize their habit of doing this, they're surprised and a little #embarrassed.
