Great leaders don’t subscribe to a “Do-It-For-You” methodology of talent management, rather they lead, mentor, coach, and develop team members by getting them to buy-into a “Do-It-Yourself” work ethic.
- Be sincere in your questioning.
- Learn to ask effective questions.
- Use questions to stimulate and challenge.
- Get personal in your questioning.
- Demonstrate your competency without giving the answer away.
If you want to become a great leader, master the art of teaching and coaching through the application of skillful questioning.
The quote clearly defines the type of link between leadership and teaching that I have discussed in recent posts, Great Leaders Should Behave Like a Teacher and Great Leaders Act Like a Teacher - Lead to an Objective.
Thanks for reading. Lead quietly and act like a teacher with skillful questions.
