Tip Thursday - Communication

When seeking clarification of a point with someone, avoid asking them Why. Instead, ask - What made you do that?  Asking why tends to put people on the defensive, which will create a barrier to uncovering the truth. Additionally, people are less conditioned to answer 'What made you do that', which may result in a less structured and more open response.
