Five Truly Awesome Questions to Ask Yourself

Posted in Career Development
  1. What is your mission?
  2. Which are the most important relationships you want to invest in?
  3. What are the essential priorities and goals of those closest to you?
  4. What are your expectations of the people around you, and what do they expect of you?
  5. 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.
