Asking great questions is an essential part of effective leadership.
Good leaders may have the answers (or they may not). But, great leaders don’t necessarily share their own solutions to problems straight away.
Instead, they ask questions. Questions which are derived from listening with full intent. And questions which empower their teams to form their own answers – building their team’s confidence and capabilities along the way.
With that in mind, I have decided to start a regular feature at The Leader’s Digest, where I will dedicate an entire blog post to exploring (and hopefully answering) one of your leadership questions.
A big disclaimer here – I do not espouse to be an expert on leadership, but given it’s what I live, breathe and research all day long, I can share with you what I have learned vicariously, collective wisdom and research, as well as musings from my own meandering, stumbling leadership journey and coaching practice.
So, what burning management or leadership question are you grappling with?
What would you like to know more about, as you look down the barrel of 2014?
The question can be anything relating to the wide world of leadership development / management.
If your question is selected you will win a copy of my favourite leadership book of the moment – this month the book is Heart to Start by Derek Handley.
