“Judge others by their questions rather than by their answers.”

In fact, the practice of inquiring is at the very heart of Anytime Coaching. All the practices matter, but you cannot coach without inquiring.
Anytime coaches recognize that questions are the doorway to meaningful conversations with employees.
