Asking The Right Questions

While many leaders are busy seeking answers, few are evaluating if they are asking the right questions. Gaining answers is easy, but if they are answers to the wrong questions, then the answers have little value.

Consider the following as an example of some questions that have limited value: "I wonder how much this will cost? How much time will it take?" While these are not necessarily bad questions, they are not the most important questions we should be asking.

Instead, consider the power of asking, "What is the most important thing that I can do that will change my business?"

The difference is one puts the "cost" of a change or a decision in context of the impact it will have on our business and team. The others simply point out obstacles. The reality is that anything that is truly important will have obstacles to implementing the change. That, however, should not stop us from doing what is important-instead it informs our strategy for implementation.

Personal Challenge:

Begin today to evaluate the questions you are posing to yourself and others. Make sure the best questions are being asked and achieving true success! 

All The Best,

Rhoda
