"While I honestly wasn't conscious of it, Gary's notion of 'leading by asking' nicely captures my own style. This approach creates a more collegial attitude, it opens dialogue and shows respect for those who are closer to and have responsibility for the issues. In many cases it is also appropriate because each generation seems to be smarter than the last. As a tool, Gary's book can raise everyone's awareness of the social and intellectual power of asking rather than telling."
Everyone knows how difficult it is to find direction when you don't know where you are…and even more difficult when you don't know where you are going. Many companies, large and small, new and seasoned focus on executing day-to-day tasks without the time to consider either. This is most likely the result of a combination of heads down hard work, poor communication, and/or a lack of planning.
