Self Doubt is Hurting Your Career – Questions Over Silence

When we ASK something, we often feel vulnerable. And vulnerability brings discomfort and fear. So to protect ourself from discomfort and fear, many of us find ourselves trying to solve all problems ourselves. But without the benefits derived from actually communicating, we can begin to make decisions and take actions that may be far removed from the actual goals. And thus, our fear of communication actually harms us.

Questions Win Over Quiet – Every Time: It is easy to think that asking questions for clarification or admitting that you don’t know how to do something may make you look like you can’t handle the job. But from a manager’s perspective, you could not be more wrong.

Questions not only lead to clarity, they lead to collaboration.
