My Take on the Book

This book offers amazing examples of how you can use questions to be the best leader you can be. What I loved was that the book is filled with tons of examples from many leaders that will help you think about and work on how to better solve problems, be more creative, create stronger teams, and draw your team closer together. The authors spell out the overall benefits that using questions can offer you as a leader. Even if you have never done this before the authors really do spell out a plan for how you can start right away. The authors also bring forth some of the most powerful questions that you can ask. I know that for me, this book really made me think deeper about the questions that I do, or do not ask. For me, this was a great book that will definitely help you to become a stronger leader that will help lead your team in a much better way!
