Welcome to the What's Next! podcast with Tiffani Bova.
This week I have the pleasure of speaking with Hal Gregersen. Hal is Executive Director of the MIT Leadership Center and Senior Lecturer at the MIT Sloan School of Management. His newest book, Questions are the Answer: A Breakthrough Approach to Your Most Vexing Problems at Work and In Life (a Nautilus Book Award winner in 2018), builds on 200+ interviews with renowned business, technology, education, government, social enterprise, and artistic leaders. Ranked one of the world’s 25 most influential management thinkers by Thinkers50, and winner of the 2017 Distinguished Achievement Award for leadership, Hal regularly delivers inspirational keynote speeches, motivational executive seminars, and transformational coaching experiences. He has co-authored ten books and is the author of more than 50 articles, book chapters, and cases on leading innovation and change (with more than 10,000 citations by other scholars). His research has been highlighted in global media such as BBC, CNN, The Economist, Fast Company, Financial Times, Forbes, Fortune, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal. He is also the founder of The 4-24 Project, an initiative dedicated to rekindling the provocative power of asking the right questions in adults so they can pass this crucial creativity skill onto the next generation. I am absolutely thrilled to be speaking with Hal Gregersen on the What’s Next! Podcast.
THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR… anyone who wants to get better and rekindle his or her curiosity!
TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE… Hal teaches us all about asking questions and really listening to the answers. Are you stopping and reflecting on how many and what kinds of questions you ask? Are you getting and acting on good feedback? Hal helps us pause and take a moment to rediscover our child-like curiosity and move forward as better leaders, better employees, and better humans!
WHAT I LOVE MOST… Hal’s 24-hour question audit. We all should be doing this!
