A Personal Update How a Leader Asks Questions
I am learning how to ask questions that drive the whole group forward and aren’t only for my own edification.
It was brought to my attention by my coach at school in my Master’s of Education Teaching Residency course that I need to consider the group’s needs above my own. I need to honor the direction the group is bringing to a topic rather than personalize my question to what I want to know.
It’s very interesting to think of asking questions this way. It’s an entirely different skill than we are taught as students. It’s a professional leadership skill that requires high degrees of emotional regulation, meta-cognition, and a humble spirit.
