Asking Questions: The Heart of Leadership

Leaders do many things right and embody many high character qualities.  But one habit may stand above all others as the quality that drives success: Asking questions – lots and lots of questions.  How does this help, you might ask?  Doesn’t it just make you look ignorant to the challenges of the 21st century business?

It’s not just asking questions that does it.  “Where’s the water fountain?” doesn’t inspire or improve anyone.  But, carefully considered questions delivered at the right time and with the right tone can make a huge difference.  It can build confidence, encourage creativity that leads to innovation, uncover incorrect assumptions, or have any number of other positive outcomes.  Today’s team members don’t want to be told what to do or how to solve a problem.  However, when a solution eludes them and they need a nudge, it is the perfect time to ask a question – putting the focus on them – and allow them to succeed on their own terms.  This is the heart of guidance.  Providing readily canned answers only creates dependence.  Prodding the discussion with well timed, engaging questions creates independence, improves confidence, and ultimately lays the foundation for success.
