Today we unpack why asking questions is powerful and can build stronger bonds between people. Tuning in you’ll hear our beliefs when it comes to giving advice, why decisions are subjective, and why you don’t need to have the answers to peoples’ problems as sometimes just asking them questions can help them solve them on their own.
