Leading with Questions
by Michael Marquardt
Coaching is more than asking a question – it is about timing, motivation and focus. As your clients experience the power of questions, they may find they too want to engage with their teams through the use of inquiry. This book provides interesting thought and case studies on the effects of leading with inquiry rather than with answers to draw out and empower not just your client in a coaching session, but equip your client to do the same as a leader.
by Edgar H. Schein
Too often coaches cave to the desire to give an answer or worse, ask question that set the client down a path the coach thinks is best. This book helps to dismantle the hubris behind these artificial inquiries and may help to purify both our listening and our response with question to that which we hear from our clients.
by Tony Stoltzfus
So often we get stuck asking the operational questions or the “give me the detail” questions that don’t move the client forward. Tony’s catalog of questions and their typical application in a coaching dialogue expands our inquiry vocabulary rapidly. If you just need to expand the types of questions you ask to include challenge, courageous, thoughtful and other types of dialogue provokers, this book might help.
by Os Guinness
If you are more of a transformational or vision type coach, this book might serve you very well. Os takes a look at the biblical concept of calling and applies it to dozens of real life scenarios answering questions like: What is a calling? What if someone has a calling similar to me? How do I stop the voice of doubt as I step into my call? Each chapter closes with a set of questions that serves a coaching dialogue beautifully.
