Please, after reflecting on the six key questions below you realize you cannot afford to miss this course on Leading with Great Questions for Breakthrough Solutions.
1. Honestly speaking, do I mostly ask my subordinates/colleagues closed-ended questions that elicit ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answers?

6. Do I wish I knew how to ask the right questions and when to ask them?
WHY THE URGENT NEED TO IMMEDIATELY BEGIN TO LEAD WITH GREAT QUESTIONS FOR BREAKTHROUGH SOLUTIONS?
Too few leaders lead with questions. They tend to dictate or debate rather than inquire or discuss and that is why their organizations are still copying, struggling and even stagnating rather than innovating.
