Overview

Are you ready to take on the role of “Questioner-in-Chief?”

In this webcast, Warren Berger, author of the new bestselling book A More Beautiful Question, explains why today’s business executives must be more comfortable asking questions, and encouraging those around them to question more.

What You Will Learn

In this 60-minute program, Berger will walk you through:
  • How dynamic change in today’s marketplace creates the need for more and better questioning by leaders
  • Research showing that the most successful CEOs are usually expert questioners
  • How to create a “Culture of Inquiry” in your company
  • Why some leaders don’t feel comfortable asking questions (and how they can overcome that)
  • How to get better at asking “actionable questions” that lead to tangible results

Berger will also share some of the most important questions that every business leader today should be asking him/herself. And he’ll explain why you might want to consider replacing your company’s “mission statement” with something more engaging and compelling—namely, a “mission question.”

While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
