Questions and Listening

Leaders must learn the balance between asking powerful questions and listening. Voltaire said, “Judge a man by his questions rather than his answers.” Respectable leaders need to be curious and ask questions that empower those they lead. It is equally important to listen without interruption after asking questions. Be sure to use empowering questions that lead to thoughtful examination. It is through deliberate questioning and attentive listening that effective leaders will find success.
