Day 4, another day

A panel discussion is all about finding a way to exchange ideas Image Credit: AIGA/NY For some odd and strange reason, people seem to think that just because we can do a good job of giving a speech we’d also be able to moderate a panel discussion.

Great Leaders Ask Questions

“Leadership is not as much about knowing the right answers, as it is about knowing the right questions.” – Bob Tiede If you were in a rowboat with your team, how many of them would you want to have row? Might your answer be all of them? How happy would you be if you ended up being the only one rowing? Probably not so much. Why then would you want to tackle the challenges, opportunities, problems, and changes needed in your company by telling your staff what they should do? Why would you not want...

Some questions that came up this week…

Some questions that came up this week… Is it really “the mother of all rebellions” for a woman to preach on Mother’s Day? or Is this sharp objection really all about “protecting systems”? and, while we’re on the subject, Is there really some silly pietist saying that a mom who enjoys being the center of attention on Mother’s Day may be revealing “a root of idolatry”?

Why Don’t You Ask That Question?

By Tibor Shanto “What-ifs, Maybes And Might-have-beens” is no tag line for your pipeline, (probably why Gerald never looked at sales as a vocational option). However, it does describe many conversations I have with people up and down the food chain. Regrets about doing things, not doing things, left wondering. Questions are a specific example; salespeople will say “I should have asked,” or worse, “I wanted to ask, but”; that last one breaks my heart, every time. Why Not? When I ask, the initia...
