Ask One Question at a Time
If you ask multiple questions at once, which question will most likely receive a response? If you answered, probably the last question asked, then you are correct. When we ask a series of questions without pausing for the responses, we are often assuming the content of the responses. However, the actual response to each of the questions is probably different than we have assumed. Best practice: wait for a response, and listen to the response before asking your next question. This week, try doing that during your next business interaction.
