Great Leaders Ask Great Questions
If you were in a row boat with your team, how many of them would you want to have row? Might your answer be all of them? How happy would you be if you ended up being the only one rowing? Probably not so much.
Why then would you want to tackle the challenges, opportunities, problems, and changes needed in your company by telling your staff what they should do? Why would you not want to get all their oars in the water by asking them, “What do you think?” This one simple step has the potential to notably increase your leadership effectiveness!
Great Leaders Ask Great Questions reminds us that leading with questions takes preparation, intentionality, discipline, and practice. It offers more than 100 questions to ask coworkers, bosses, employees, family members, friends, and acquaintances. Too many leaders today try to lead by telling, instead of asking – but leadership is not as much about knowing the right answers, as it is about knowing the right questions.
