How to ask great questions

In episode #9, JDm talks about how to ask great questions, even when the topic is muddled and unclear.

How do you ask great questions? In this episode, JDM covers three things:

First, what makes a question great, and how to be a great questioner.

Second, what kinds of questions can you ask, particularly when you want to understand something more deeply than you already do, using the DSRP framework from systems thinking: distinctions, systems, relationships, and perspectives.

Finally, JDM shares his three favourite questions that you can put to work right now.
