The Surprising Power of Questions  Alison Wood Brooks & Leslie K John, Harvard Business Review, May-June 2018 issue

“Much of an executive’s workday is spent asking others for information—requesting status updates from a team leader, for example, or questioning a counterpart in a tense negotiation.
