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?

As I was reading a book recently about leadership, I found this quote that got me thinking;

“Organizations thrive on routine and the status quo; professionals in organizations rely on the established systems in order to carry out their jobs with minimal resistance and stress. As a result, most people in companies today have not challenged themselves to learn something really different for a long time.”  Primal Leadership by Daniel Goleman

So what does this mean and how would other leaders react to this statement?

How does this impact people in general – if people don’t learn something daily how will this impact us all?
