What happens when a LEADER truly begins to LEARN? Any idea? Several things happen when a LEADER intentionally participates in “daily” growth.
1. The Leader “models” what leading looks like.
2. The Leader “shows” the way for others to follow.
3. The Leader “goes” first
4. The Leader “takes” his followers with him on the journey
5. The Leader “crosses” the finish line WITH his team TOGETHER!
“A Good Leader Asks Great Questions”, that is the title of John Maxwell’s newest book due to be released in October 2014. What questions are you asking as a leader today? You know we only get answers to the questions we ask. As one who is “trained” in the art of the question, sometimes the question is the key to everything in a leaders day. Often sitting in silence will let the perfect question come to surface.
How often has urgency thwarted a perfect question from being asked in your busy day? When we push and rush to fix, find and make things happen, many times the situation worsens. What if we stop for just a moment longer and gave some thought to critical thinking and the placement of the perfect question, placed in the right moment, and asked of the right person, what might happen then?
The course of business, the quarter, the year, and our careers might well look very different. This is something to think about.
Right now you have an opportunity to LEARN and LEAD! On October 10th at the San Ramon Valley Conference Center in San Ramon, California, John Maxwell will be broadcasting live from his new Leadership Center in Atalanta along with Linda Kaplan Thaler and Tim Sanders.
