Asking Better Questions

Leaders often don’t ask enough questions, and when they do, many don’t ask the right questions. Or they don’t ask them in a way that will empower honest and informative answers.

Poor leaders rarely ask any questions—of themselves or others.

Many leaders think it’s best to tell others what to do. 

Some think that scripting the answer for others will ensure whatever challenge is being discussed gets addressed in the right way. This only leads to frustration when it doesn’t.
