In September of this year, I was offered the incredible opportunity to share my thoughts on the TEDx Coeur d’Alene stage. I was so excited to share my thoughts about how important the questions we ask are in shaping the world we live in. In the talk, I cover:

  • How breaking questions down into informational, rhetorical, and exploratory helps us understand the expectations behind a question.
  • Why asking a question is one of the most respectful acts you can engage in.
  • How questions and our relationship with them differentiates democratic and authoritarian conversations — personally and politically.
  • Some of my favorite responses to passive-aggressive rhetorical questions, and more.
