What makes a great question? Four things!

What makes a great question?  Four  things! | The new world of work | Scoop.it

To inspire others, managers need to stop directing and start leading. What can managers do differently? It’s simple.  Start by asking great questions. The creative process starts when there’s a void: silence instead of music, a blank canvas, or a great question left hanging in the air.

(From the article): 

What makes a great question?  Four  things:A great question is a question that matters. The person asking truly wants an answer.A great question is neutral. The answer isn’t included in the question.A great question leads to results rather than reflection.A great question is not burdened by opinion or personality.

Ask the right questions, and only the right questions, at the right time. When you do that, you clear the way for your direct report’s self-discovery.

 

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 4, 10:49 AM

Great questions also include more great questions. They do call for reflection. Although opinion is not the right word, we bring our prejudices with us. Gadamer proposed we want to know that in advance and be aware of the influence they have on our questions. After all, we embody cultural and historical ways of thinking.

En français, les 4 règles sont : 

1. Une excellente question est une question importante. La personne qui la pose veut vraiment une réponse.

2. Une excellente question est neutre. La réponse n'est pas inclue dans la question

3. Une excellente question provoque des résultats plutôt que des réflexions.

4. Une excellente question ne concerne pas votre personne.

Five Trends Shaping the Future of Work

Five Trends Shaping the Future of Work | The new world of work | Scoop.it

If there’s one thing that we can all agree on it’s that the world of work is changing…quickly. The way we have been working over the past few years is NOT how are we are going to be working in the coming years. Perhaps one of the most important underlying factors driving this change is the coming shift around who drives how work gets done. Traditionally executives would set the rules and pass those down to managers who in turn would pass those down to employees. But as Dan Pink aptly put it, “talented people need organizations less than organizations need talented people.” In other words employees are now starting to drive the decisions and conversations around how work gets done, when it gets done, who it gets done with, what technologies are being used to get it done, etc. The next few years are going to bring about dramatic changes. But why now? What are the key trends that are driving this new future of work? There are five of them - take a look.

In den nächsten Jahren wird sich die Arbeitswelt immer mehr verändern aufgrund der mobilen, globalisierten Welt und des daraus resultierenden erhöhten Bedarfs an kollaborativen Verhaltensweisen. Diese Veränderungen rufen nach Führungskompetenzen, die vernetztes, kooperatives Denken in den Vordergrund stellen und Führung als komplexen Prozess betrachten.

You need to understand what inspires them and how you can make them feel personally appreciated for their service and connected to the overall mission."
