The Art of Asking Questions – 09-12-2011
“..asking questions effectively is a major underlying part of a manager’s job — which suggests that it might be worth giving this skill a little more focus.”
The preceding quote is from the latest “DFS Learning e-Blast” article, “The Art of Asking Questions”, by Ron Ashkenas.
In this August 30, 2011 blog post on the HBR Blog Network, the author provides clear guidance on the power of using the right questions to help an individual, a group, or even an organization succeed.
As you read this article, think about your ability to ask appropriate questions to guide progress, remove obstacles, and lead effectively.
More from the article:
