Some of you may live this, and if you do so every day it could be a tough road to hoe if the leader asking the questions doesn't appreciate the cost, and continues to draw from that well constantly.

Many of you know my insatiable appetite for reading.  At certain stretches in my career I have read so much I sometimes have forgotten what I've read, but when reminded of what I've read I can remember and recall a lot of detail from a specific book.  Why does this matter and why should you care?  Reading widely and out of your area of expertise naturally forces you into a mode of "comparative familiarity" where you try to relate what you've read to your current job, life etc.  You may even try to apply some of the material you've come across to the challenges you face at home and work.  Lastly, reading widely and often contributes to enhancing your problem solving skill set--a skill we all need to keep sharp in the course of our work and other activities

The best leaders I have been around ask great open-ended questions that advance the conversation and get other people to open up on their opinions.  This piece captures that idea well: “the quality of life is determined by the quality of the questions we learn to ask…”

As a consultant I feel very fortunate to work with some of the most talented leaders and organizations across the globe. 


One of the most powerful leadership questions I have seen leaders ask their teams is so simple yet so powerful..."What can I do to help"?


This article discusses some other suggested questions empowering leaders ask.  If you have powerful questions....please share with us, would love to hear from you.


Until next time...PS - Live on Purpose!

I have been in this situation before and I can tell you that the organization fails to advance past the tactical/operational levels to the operational/strategic levels it should be operating.  Furthermore, it creates an 'inbox mentality' rather than focusing on the journey of meeting horizon goals, objectives and vision.  Almost nothing worse than this business malady...

A reminder (and a good story of how Richard Branson got started) that if you wait to accomplish things when you're 'ready' it's probably too late!  Jump in with both feet, get started and learn/adapt along the way!

As a huge fan of Hemingway's work and a fellow writer, I had to scoop this piece!  One of the tips that struck me, particularly, was the first and the benfits of using standing desks (or the perils of sitting down all day, if flipped).  Studies and evidence abound, now, of how sitting all day could shorten your life, and even nullifies the benefits gained from regular exercise!  See this recent article in The Economist from last month (http://www.economist.com/news/science-and-technology/21583239-real-science-lies-behind-fad-standing-up-work-standing-orders).  The other tips are also tried and true axioms for anyone who wants to be more productive at work.
