The Art of the Question
by Dave Waldo
Grow Revenue Through the Power of Questions
The best leaders aren't those who have the right answers--they're the people who ask the best questions.
Questions are essential to build relationships, to solve problems, and to learn and grow. But most people haven't been taught to question well and don't understand the power of good questions. If you've ever aspired to be an effective board member, massively grow your business, or improve your relationships with family members, The Art of the Question contains the tools to make this happen.
Dave Waldo has been practicing the art of the question in boardrooms for the last three decades and has been called a "board whisperer." As CEO of Waldo Agencies, Dave works with family businesses to control risk and assist in business transitions that often require families to work together for a successful transition. Dave's curiosity and continual practicing of his question-asking skills have helped him make many friends across North America, Europe, and Asia and led him places across the globe he never expected to go.
Armed with the wisdom of this book, you will learn how to:
- Confidently engage with anyone, in any situation
- Never feel over your head in professional interactions
- Get through challenging conversations with less stress
- Lead family discussions that might otherwise be chaotic and dysfunctional
- Bring extraordinary value to every conversation through questions rather than answers
