Asking a good question during a presentation isn’t merely about finding the answer.
A good question gives the presenter the permission and the motivation to delve deeper. It gets her thinking and often helps her unlock an new insight. It signals to her that that her audience is engaged. It turns the presentation from a monologue to a conversation. Finally, it indicates to the rest of the audience that it is okay to ask good questions and starts the cycle all over.
Asking a good question during a presentation isn’t merely about finding the answer. It is a generous act that lifts the presentation to a higher plane.
