A question on questioning skills.
George Carlin was a curious character. An author, philosopher, and stand-up comedian.
Out of all of his many challenges and utterances, this one rises above all for me:
"Some people see things that are, and ask: Why? Some people dream of things that never were, and ask: Why not? Some people have to go to work and don't have time for all that shit."
I sincerely hope the last part of that phrase doesn't describe you.
If it does, you might want to heed the words of Warren Berger, who writes leadership articles for HBR, Wall St Journal, Fast Company, etc.
"Having strong questioning skills has always been important. But in a time of exponential change, it’s a 21st century survival skill.”
So what are you going to do to create a more curious culture in your organization, starting today? And how are you going to up your rate of questioning?
