Leading with Questions

without comments

“How leaders find the right solutions by knowing what to ask.”

If is true that change begins with inquiry, Leading with Questions is a very useful book to start a transformational process because of its practical approach for business leaders who want to develop and ask questions that provoke reflection, get meaningful information, and jumpstart action.

“Throughout the book, author Michael Marquardt demonstrates how effective leaders use questions to encourage participation and teamwork, foster outside-the-box thinking, empower others, build relationships with customers, solve problems, and much more.”

The book is based on interviews with over twenty business leaders who lead with questions. The author classifies the different approaches and questions which lead to solutions and action. The reader can learn different strategies on how to use questions that will get results. The book teaches the art of questioning and shows how to use the techniques of active listening and follow-up. Most importantly, the author presents guidelines for using questions in a variety of situations (individual, team and organization).

Leading with Questions is a great guide for understanding when, how, and where to lead with questions”.
