Reply wei xiao June 27, 2018 at 9:40 am | # I would ask the member who answer the question: – What is the question you have heard? – For this specific question, what’s a better way to respond?” Then I will turn to the team -” What you have observed from this specific case?” – “Why the person respond with open answer?” -“What will you do next?” Reply Donellen Schlosser September 21, 2018 at 1:20 am | # If this affects the discussion or keeps happening, I would ask the respondent “What question are you answering?” or “What question was asked?” and then ask the questioner “Did you mean that question to be close-ended?” Reply Leave a comment You must be logged in to post a comment.
