How do I help someone with a problem?

The Art of Asking Questions

When coaching team members (or anyone for that matter) the key is to help them find their own answers.
By asking open-ended questions (not yes/no questions) you will allow the individual to find the answer that is already within himself.
When a person finds an answer or solves a problem herself, she is more likely to remember it and apply it.
