The CEO’s 7 Laws of Leadership: 4. STOKE CURIOSITY

April 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


“What separates top CEOs from the rest is how much they question, probe, and then process what they are experiencing in order to look for insights and patterns.” Adam Bryant ”How to think like a CEO,” strategy+business

4. Stoke curiosity

World-class business leaders are high on curiosity and low on ego.
They are inquisitive, welcome new ideas from trusted sources, and are eager to explore. Vulnerability is viewed as an asset, and they are the first to admit they don’t have all the answers. They ask questions to seek input and pressure-test their assumptions so they can come to the best decision for the business — not to prove their own point.

Curiosity comes from questions.
Vistage executive coach Beth Miller advises CEOs to lead by questioning. She offers five tips to improve your questioning skills:

1. Avoid leading questions to truly understand the other person’s perspective.
2. Ask open-ended and diverse questions.
3. Ask questions that create clarity.
4. Ask empowering questions that lead people to positive action, rather than
assigning blame.
5. Ask questions that help employees think analytically and critically.
