Ask Great Questions: Leadership Skills Of Socrates

Ask Great Questions: Leadership Skills Of Socrates | Project Management around the globe | Scoop.it

Socrates, this ancient philosopher holds the key to an essential leadership skill: asking great questions. The challenge is that too few leaders, managers and employees ask great questions. This is a big problem. Cultures that embrace a culture of questioning thrive and those that fear it either fail or are doomed to mediocrity.
