Critical Leadership Questions

What are you trying to do?

What are you actually doing?

Is what you’re doing working?

What is your evidence that it is working?

If it’s not working, why are you still doing it?

That’s an interesting question:  why ARE you still doing it?

Are you interested in real results or in simply going through the motions?

Why don’t you stop and find out what will work?

If what will really work costs more and takes more time, are you still willing to do it?

If you aren’t willing to do what it takes, why haven’t you given the job to someone else?

That’s another interesting question: Why HAVEN’T you giving the job to someone else?

If you do know what will work, why aren’t you doing it?
