Praise for Leading with Questions
"When leaders ask questions--and create organizational cultures that value questions--great things happen. People engage, complex problems are solved, creativity is increased, and the whole organization learns faster and better. Leading with Questions provides a comprehensive and practical formula for helping your organization--and yourself--become more effective."
