🔥 THE BEST LEADERS DRAW OUT THE BEST IN OTHERS. A entire, effective leadership interaction to awaken the best in
others could be had using only questions. 🔥
🔎 Theoretically, this could happen. From the most general information to the very specific detail, someone can be led by questions.
💡 I know it oversimplifies leadership and operations, and sometimes the leader will have the technical know-how to make the best decision.
🔥 QUESTIONS DEMONSTRATE SO MUCH. They show you're curious, patient, humble, open, transparent, social, self-aware, etc, etc., etc.
A general example to consider:
Who are you?
How long have you been here?
What's your background?
What do you do?
Are you happy with how you do it?
Are there better tools/resources you need?
Besides resources for the work, what do YOU need?
What would you ideally like to see happen here?
Do you have some ideas or observations?
Is that the/Are those the best option(s)?
Why will they work?
What are the pros/cons/costs/benefits?
Aside from your work, what else do you see in our organization -- the good and the bad?
Are you being honest?
Do you feel you can be honest?
Why or why not?
Have there been times here where you feared being honest?
Have we as an organization missed out on your ideas because you felt you couldn't speak up?
Do you believe others have ideas to share and might want to speak up?
What ideas might you have for us to collect feedback?
Can I share some of your ideas with others, whether you want your name mentioned, or anonymously?
Is there anything I am missing in what I've contributed to the team and organization?
Can you let me know when I'm being unclear or may need improvement in either guidance, strategy, communication, or tactics?
Can we touch base to follow up on everything we've covered here, both my progress and yours?
