Leadership is about allowing others the chance to flourish. And you do that by asking questions. ~Gary Cohen
The three P's are: possibilities, probabilities and priorities. These three are sequentially linked. Apply different questions to the different categories. Certain questions generate possibilities. Other questions sharpen the team's ability to assess the probable outcome of potential decisions. The third set of questions help to empower team members to prioritize. While Socrates engaged in philosophical dialogues over long periods of time, you have a venture to run. And that means taking action. Learn to apply different questions to the three P's; it will help advance your endeavor.
Gary Cohen, author of Just Ask Leadership says, "Leadership is about allowing others the chance to flourish. And you do that by asking questions. This empowers coworkers to find solutions, embrace responsibility, and become accountable. Moreover, it opens the door to greater productivity and creativity. Indeed, more than ever before, leaders can't know everything. By seeking others' input, they can inspire powerful and positive change."
So tomorrow morning, when we wake up, let's ask ourselves which great questions we will bring to our organization that will advance our mission and allow others to flourish.
