All,

I was coaching a relatively new college hire the other day on asking good questions
and communicating effectively, and thought it might be good to get other perspectives.

I tend to point folks to http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html , which
is spot-on IMHO, but pretty harsh and not exactly er....nurturing.

How do you coach junior writers (or anyone, for that matter) to ask better questions?

Eric
