Bob Tiede is a leadership expert out of Plano, Texas, who writes a blog called, “Leading with Questions“. This is one of the best leadership blogs I know of. In Bob’s newsletter this week he shares some of his favorite questions which I’ve excerpted below. (And by the way, the follow-up question “What else?  or Tell me more?” is one of my secret weapons. I’ve used it to great effect over the years.)

1.  What’s going well?

2.  What’s not going well?

3.   Where are you stuck?

4.   What needs to change?

What do you think?

  • What else?  or Could you tell me more?
  • What else?  or Please tell me more.
  • What else?  or Please tell me more.

Sometimes the best input comes from the 3rd time you ask, “what else?”

1.  What is your impossible dream?

2.  What would you have to do to make your dream possible?
