Book Review - Change Your Questions, Change Your Life

Change Your Questions, Change Your Life

About the Book

In Change Your Questions, Change Your Life, discover how the questions we ask ourselves and others can either expand our mindsets and open us up to exciting new possibilities or constrict our mindsets and limit our choices for successful change.

Change Your Questions, Change Your Life is an international bestseller that has sold over 400,000 copies in twenty-two languages. People have discovered that, when we’re looking for answers, we often forget to take the time to ask the right questions. But, as Dr. Marilee Adams shows, intentionally using questions helps us make wiser choices, find solutions, and transform our personal and professional lives.

Dr. Adams uses a highly engaging fable to illustrate how great results begin with great questions. The book’s hero, Ben Knight, learns such breakthrough insights and undergoes a transformative journey. As we read how his coach takes him step by step through the twelve powerful tools of Question Thinking, we also learn how to apply the same information and practical skills in our own lives. At the center of this work is the Choice Map, which provides a simple yet powerful image to predict the likely results of the questions we ask ourselves and others. It tells us how to change our questions and our mindsets for the most rewarding outcomes.

The book contains a new chapter delving into what neuroscience reveals about managing our stresses and fears more effectively using methodssuch as those described in this book. It includes powerful and practical tools that help readers switch from a constricting Judger to an expansive Learner mindset, achieve the results they desire, and foster breakthroughs.

My Take on the Book
Questions are not always easy to grapple with. We struggle at times to find the right questions to ask, but in this book you learn that when we work to change our questions we open ourselves to even more. This book challenges you to think broader than we may have in the past. This book also allows you to see that the world that we have is so complex and that though we grow up and build habits that may limit the questions that we ask, the the more questions that we do ask and the way we ask them will help us to be better leaders. This book uses practical ways to help the reader to begin changing the way we use questions for the good of the work that we do.
