Why I designed a course on asking questions?
The course aims at helping learners to improve their ability to formulate questions to achieve specific goals in different contexts, retaining control over communications and enhancing their questioning skills

- People determined to increase efficiency and effectiveness in communication may find this course engaging: the course is beneficial in any kind of negotiation and teamwork, R&D, problem-solving, conflict management and in any situation where communication is key
- What about in private life? In my experience, the course is very useful here too
What about the expected duration? The course should take about 3 hours to complete.
