Want to better answers when asking questions? Ask then stay silent, this is called the Golden Silence

When you are on the phone with a prospect or face-to-face with a candidate you should always ask questions. Asking questions is vital in your work.

However, one lesson that is generally not taught to people is the art of shutting up and being quiet or what is sometimes referred to as the golden silence. Being quiet is important, especially after you have asked a question.

When you ask a question you should always then stay silent, and the reason for this is people hate silence, it forms an uncomfortable break that people want to fill. So when you ask a question to a client, and then you go quietly, they will fill the void.

By filling the void, they may give you the response you want, or tell you information they want to keep to themselves. So ask questions, but remember to be and stay silent after you have asked the question.
