The Power of Questions
Asking questions to challenge status quo beliefs and assumptions is a key element in any business transformation. Many new disruptive business models are based on a different perspective on what’s possible and questioning status quo assumptions about how things are. Often in hindsight, established businesses ask themselves, “How did we not see this?”
In his book ‘A more beautiful question,’ Warren Berger argues that as the world is changing at increasing speed, asking smart questions is more important than having answers.
Powerful questions like ‘what if..?’,’ ‘why not..? ‘how to..? ‘what are we maybe missing..?’ can help become aware of limiting assumptions.
Regularly uncovering and challenging the current key assumptions of the business with the help of questions, is powerful.
Which great questions do you ask?
