It can be related to any part of your life – family, school, work, or community. 1) What was the failure?2) Why did it turn out to be a good thing in hindsight?3) What did you learn from the experience?
PART II: THE POWER OF QUESTIONSChallenge the Process also focuses on seeking new and innovative ways to change, grow and improve. Successful leaders look for new ways all the time and challenge themselves to move beyond the status quo.Leaders have to be good at listening and observing what is going on around them. Using questions is a great way to get the information you need to create, innovate, grow, and improve but leaders are often reluctant to use them. A leader often believes that as the person in charge, he or she is supposed to have all the answers and should not ask for the answers.But questions have many benefits such as:1) What is a leadership challenge that you have in your life – it can be work, a school project, or anything where you are experiencing difficulty with others and are trying to find a solution.   Questions solicit information without passing judgment.Questions allow people to come up with their own ideas.Questions provide an avenue for cooperation without creating entrenched positions.Questions hold up a mirror allowing one to reflect on what the answer really means.Questions allow one to test assumptions, especially when the wrong assumptionmight prove embarrassing.Questions create a situation in which people can get to know one another and build trusting relationships.Questions facilitate deeper understanding by digging beneath the surface.Questions protect one who does not want to give away information.Questions guide one’s thinking in order to sell an idea and get another’s buy-in before announcing a concrete decision.Question provide answers when other people just don’t know.Adapted from the Leadership Challenge Activities Book, Kouzes and Posner, 2010.
