Take Action: Few Have The Guts To Ask These Questions

"Without increased self-awareness

none of us can grow

beyond the capabilities we have today."


~ Executive Coach, Tom Henschel

 

 

Your action for today

is to ask someone--

it could be your child,

spouse, friend or work colleague--

 

1. what would be one thing

they would like for you to get better at?

 

Bonus Questions:

  

2. what would be one thing

they would like for you to stop doing.

 

3. what would be one thing

they would like for you to start doing

 

About 18 years ago,

I started asking my most trusted friends,

my best clients and my bride

these three questions occasionally each year

and with my bride, at least once per month these days.

 

You can't retort, you just listen and say thank you.

Maybe ask clarifying questions.

Do not make them regret their honesty,

or they'll never answer you again.

 

Aslo, if you're not prepared to make an effort

to change based on their answers...don't ask!

 

 

 

Design An Extraordinary Day!

Those are some good questions, always enjoy your posts, they stimulate the mind. One of my goals is always to improve my question asking. Looking back, I realize I was not curious enough to ask enough questions. Thank you for the suggestion moving forward.

Hello Thomas - when it comes to questions and asking them, I have a bit of a Jack Nicholson in A Few Good Men movie moment occur. . .

Will Hamm time to ask her if you dare 😉 Trust me that if you deliver on there answers, the relationship improves. But, don't ask if you're not prepared to act.

Michael Jacobs I'm sure the answers can feel like that to the unprepared recipient, but the delivery of the answers should be more like Mr. Rogers.

These are great questions.  As you said, the key is not counter when you hear the answers, but to take them in.
