Bob Tiede
Bob Tiede is passionate about helping leaders shift their paradigm from the pressure of having to have all the right answers to simply having a few of the right questions. He has been on the staff of Cru for 44 years and currently serves on the U.S. Leadership Development team. Helping develop the next generation of leaders for Cru is Bob’s focus. His role includes recruiting outstanding leaders from business, education, government, medicine, military, and non-profits to coach Cru’s leaders.

Bob started his blog, Leading With Questions, as a way to better connect with his target audience: Cru’s emerging leaders who are 20- and 30-somethings. Today, his blog provides a continued source of new tools (new questions) for all of Cru’s head coaches and leaders, and is viewed by leaders in more than 170 countries.

Bob and his wife, Sherry, live in Plano, TX, and are blessed with four incredible children and six remarkable grandchildren.

    Great Leaders Ask Great Questions

    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.
