Ask Permission to Ask Questions and Take Notes

by Richard Dickerson
(North Carolina)

Absolutely is a lost art. I always ask permission to ask questions, followed by asking permission to make notes.

This directs my attention to listening with my ears, mind and soul demonstrating my total attention to the talker.

The results are complete trust from the talker, followed by lot's of information.

Vistage Speaker Executive Sales Consultant/Presenter



I remember Bill Brooks talking about that on sales call - and when I starting doing it - well I had powerful, informative and more successful meetings.

You are so right - asking permission gets the other person interested and ready to talk (so few people want to hear what we have to say - when someone asks if they can ask questions - it sets a different tone) and then our taking notes, does exactly what you said - gets us ready to really tune in AND NOT BUTT IN! :)

Thank you Richard for sharing this... it truly is an art to tune into to others... and the process you shared works!

All the Best, and More!

In the auto repair industry, we call them "impact noises" and they are often associated with an engine that is shifting around under the hood because of a damaged mount. Clunking, rattling or loud bangs are the sounds most commonly associated with a bad engine mount.

Usually when one of the rubber mount seals begins to deteriorate, it will cause significant vibrations that you will be able to feel as you drive the vehicle. This is a good problem to catch early before it potentially compounds into a completely broken mount. Replacing a rubber gasket is much easier than repairing something much more serious. Heavy vibrations can also be a sign that there is a brake, suspension, wheel alignment, wheel hub bearing or exhaust system issue. It’s always a good idea to get your vehicle looked at by a professional mechanic if you feel it vibrating a lot while driving.

You are wasting our time.
by: Anonymous

If you ask permission to ask a question then you have A: Already asked one, and B: Wasted everyone's time by asking it.

If anyone on any side of resolution and results have questions, spontaneous asking should be the norm. Spontaneous and involved dialog is what fosters resolution.

Asking permission to ask questions is illogical, offensive, detrimental to the goals of all involves, and wastes time on goals of resolution.

There is no good reason to ask permission to ask s question.

This is a growing, serious, pet peeve for many.
