What is answer intelligence and how to develop it?

with Brian Glibkowski

10 Nov 2021 11:00 am

They say that anyone can answer a question but it takes smarts to ask the right question. And while it is true, questions and answers cannot be seen in siloes. They are always connected for obvious reasons. But more importantly, it is not just a question that needs smarts, but also an answer that needs intelligence.
While a long-winded response is not a preferred answer, a concisely given incorrect answer is equally useless. So, what is Answer Intelligence (AQ), and how to develop it? I am talking with Brian Glibkowski in this episode to discuss more on it.

In this episode, we are talking about:

  • What is more important - asking the right question or answering appropriately?
  • What makes or breaks an answer?
  • Importance of recognizing what is being asked.
  • How can one understand context?
  • How to handle situations when you don't have a context?
  • Origin of AQ (Answer Intelligence) framework.
  • The six high AQ practices.
  • Problems with overdoing only one aspect and how to avoid them?
  • How AQ applies in a group setting?
  • How does it help listeners?
  • More resources to learn about AQ and practice.
