About this title:

Synopsis:

John T. Chain, Jr., rose from a second lieutenant to four-star general and led our national missile defense program.

Mike Harper led ConAgra Foods from $636 million to $20 billion in 20 years and increased its stocks value 150 times over.

Ask Gary Cohen what these remarkable leaders have in common and his answer will be straightforward: They use questions to generate fresh ideas, inspire committed action, and build an army of forward-thinking leaders.

In Just Ask Leadership, Cohen steers you away from the all-too-common idea that if you don’t assert yourself with strong statements, you will not be respected. On the contrary, statistics prove that 95 percent of employees prefer to be asked questions rather than be told what to do. Involving employees and colleagues in decision making processes builds an environment rich with energy, excitement, and innovative problem solving.

Just Ask Leadership outlines not only specific questions to ask in certain contexts, but also how to implement question-based leadership as a whole. Learn how to

  • Spend more time on long-term goals―and less on short-term crises
  • Build a culture of accountability
  • Create unity and trust throughout your workforce
  • Steer decision making to the most appropriate parties
  • Develop rapport while instilling respect

When you ask questions, you show respect ―and you are respected in turn. It is that simple.

A combination of Cohen’s proven expertise and interviews with nearly 100 highly effective leaders, Just Ask Leadership explains how to harness the power of questions to make your organization more competitive, more profitable, and a better place to work.

From the Back Cover:

How do you become a great leader?
The answer’s simple: Just Ask.

The world is filled with people who have all the right answers. What it needs are more people who have all the right questions. Leadership guru Gary Cohen explains how to empower yourself and your people by presenting open-ended questions designed to engage and inspire. Just Ask Leadership provides the insight and skills you need to strategically “question” your organization to greatness.

“Gary’s book can raise everyone’s awareness of the social and intellectual power of asking rather than telling.”
―Tom Pritzker, CEO, Hyatt Corporation

“A thoroughly engaging, well-researched book that has changed the way I run my business.”
―Kayle Neeley, CEO, EZ Payroll & Staffing, and former Vice President, Norwegian Cruise Line

“Gary’s concept of Just Ask Leadership is new and illuminating. It is what we do as leaders.”
―Matt Wisk, President, My Points, Inc.

“For innovative thinking and getting a new slant on an old problem, Gary Cohen is incomparable.”
―Marcy Syms, CEO, Syms Corporation

“Gary’s approach applies to schools as well as businesses. Administrators can empower teachers and teachers can empower students simply by asking thoughtful, open-ended questions.”
―Arne Duncan, U.S. Secretary of Education
