- What is your mission?
- Which are the most important relationships you want to invest in?
- What are the essential priorities and goals of those closest to you?
- What are your expectations of the people around you, and what do they expect of you?
- What is your plan?
I found these awesome questions in a book by Andrew Sobel and Jerold Panas titled: Power Questions: Build Relationships, Win New Business, and Influence Others. The authors report that great management thinker Peter Drucker used to pose these questions to his clients.
By the way: If you only have time to read one business book the rest of this year, I recommend Power Questions. If you read it I think you would find it valuable to share your takeaways and how you can implement each one with me.
