INQUIRY DRIVEN LEADERSHIP: THE SURPRISING POWER OF ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTIONS

 
When confronted with a problem, our typical response is to look for a pre-packaged solution. But in a world increasingly transformed by technology and riddled with uncertainty, we face problems that have no ready-made answer or past precedent. Employees may think their role is to have all the answers, but in fact, says Hal Gregersen, they should be asking questions - especially when operating on the edge of uncertainty. In this presentation based on his book, "Questions Are the Answer: A Breakthrough Approach to Your Most Vexing Problems at Work and in Life" (Harper Collins, November 2018), Gregersen outlines his Question Burst method, which is designed to transform companies into hotbeds of innovation by teaching leaders and employees to rediscover their powers of inquiry. Drawing upon his first-hand research on innovative companies and leaders at Amazon, Pixar, Tesla, Zymergen and more, Gregersen demonstrates how asking questions inevitably leads not only to solutions but to valuable new and transformative ideas.
