Questions engage our critical thinking. Research shows that asking questions improves learning and performance by as much as 150 percent (Harvard Law School). Sometimes questions are more important than the answers (Author Nancy Willard).

Gandhi once said “great questions are clearly the quickest path to great answers.”

What have been some of the best questions you have asked and what did you learn because of your questions? What other benefits can be gained from asking good questions besides good answers (did it create an environment of openness and humility?).
What questions do you believe need to asked by you that you have not asked as of yet?

Extraordinary results aren’t built solely on extraordinary results. They’re built on failure too. In fact it would be accurate to say that we fail our way to success. When we fail, we stop, ask what we need to do to succeed, learn from our mistakes, and grow.  Don’t be afraid to fail.  See it as a part of your learning process and keep striving for your potential. The One Thing by Gary Keller

Do you agree that sometimes we succeed more through our failures? If so, what was your greatest success through failing?

What did you learn through that experience? Did it make you think smaller or did you think bigger and push yourself further than you would have done before?

The vast majority of leaders who change communities, whether local, regional or worldly do not hold any formal position of leadership. They are often the ones who intuitively understand that a community can achieve more with leadership than without it.  When they see that a void exists they step forward to fill it.  Leadership: 50 Points of Wisdom for Today’s Leaders by General Rick Hillier

 

Do you know someone that has stepped forward and taken on that role? What did they do? What gap did they fill and what impact did they have?  Tell me their story of community leadership.

It was said by Luigi Ferrara from, The Institute Without Boundaries, that young people want public spaces to meet and work in; social intervention is the movement that is happening today. People are attracted to beautiful spaces, they love being in them and working in them. Many rural cities can learn that it’s time to create beautiful spaces that people can gather in.  We must see the cities as a place of social interaction.  This is the type of space this new generation is looking for. Create social spaces that are beautiful and that people want to be a part of.  Also, understand that anyone under 24 shops online not in stores so create more social spaces and less retail spaces.

Do you agree that young people want more of a social experience over material items and that people in general will be attracted by beautiful spaces? Do you believe that retail stores in the next 5 years will be less of a physical place and more of a social media place to buy items – what about the work space in the next 5 years – how will that change ?
