Question Power

by Nelson Coulter | Nov 1, 2023 | Blog, Thought Leaders

When we ask impactful questions, we send some very powerful messages. Well-phrased questions can and should signal to others that we…

  • Value what they know.
  • Are genuinely curious and want to learn more.
  • Respect the need for various viewpoints/perspectives.
  • Desire discourse and dialogue (as opposed to divisive debate).
  • Might be wrong, ourselves, and are willing to reconsider our own position(s).
Leadership thought leader Dan Rockwell suggests that we use the One Question Challenge: Ask at least one question before making statements.
Seems like wise counsel. Think I’ll try to make it a habit.
