"Pia, isn't this your second day in a row using questionnaires? ;) I thought you disliked them for a reason."
Malik is right. Last week I did something I rarely do. I did a poll. Twice 😱
Malik is also right in that I dislike questionnaires – and that I dislike them for a reason. You see, questionnaires:
- Turn people into respondents = someone who reacts instead of being proactive
- Limits people's opportunity to focus on the things they consider important
- Prevent people from interacting with each other
In my work as a philosopher, executive advisor and tech founder, I spend 99 % of my time encouraging people to be proactive, focus on the things they consider important and use technology that is designed to create dialogue and shared responsibility.
But 1 % of the time I feel certain I know what's important to ask. And when that's the case I don't encourage dialogue.
I do a questionnaire.
