“The important thing is not to stop questioning.” — Albert Einstein

Legendary strategist Peter Drucker once shared the secret to his consulting genius saying, “My greatest strength as a consultant is to be ignorant and ask a few questions.”

Jim Collins writes, “Leading from good to great means having the humility to grasp the fact that you do not yet understand enough to have the answers and then to ask the questions that will lead to the best possible insights.”

The Bottom Line: Leaders humbly ask questions that provide them the critical insights needed to lead.
