The Question Is Like a Flower

The question is like a flower that beckons to the bee, and the responses pollinate the ensuing conversation.
Christina Baldwin + Ann Linnea

Asking questions is like planting a flower in a garden.

Just as a flower needs bees to help it grow and produce more flowers, our responses to questions can help to “pollinate” our conversations, making them more interesting and productive.

When we ask questions, we’re inviting other people to share their thoughts and ideas with us. This can help to enrich and deepen our conversations.

Why not come and experience this for yourself in one of our next Speed Networking sessions?

You’ll see that I just love asking questions.

Perhaps it’s because I don’t want to be seen as a fool for life!

Remember what Confucius said?

“The man who asks a question is a fool for a minute, the man who does not ask is a fool for life.”
