    I would ask the group ‘What is the difference between a closed question and an open-ended question?’ After discussing the difference I would ask the person who asked the first question: ‘Did you intend your question to be a closed question of would you like to rephrase that as an open-ended question?’

    I will intervene with the question: “How would you rate the quality of the question? (on a scale of 1 to 10; 1 – poor, 10 – excellent)”. It is not difficult for the team to realize that they are using closed-end questions and rate a low score. And the next question is “What can we do better?”
