L2: Learn-Lead Singapore
I had the chance to attend this from a friend’s recommendation on 28th October 2014. I heard about John C. Maxwell a lot but didn’t manage to know more about him. I was glad I was able to. He is a humorous guy, during his talk despite he did try to promote his books. However, I think is a more subtle and fun way that I can accept. Likewise, his talk was about “Good Leaders ask Great Questions”. Most people will think nothing much about it, however after hearing him. I realise why the importance. He mentioned in all seminars that we attend, a few things are necessary to see the change and growth.
A – Apply
C – Change
T – Teach
In short, it is to act on it, else nothing will happen. Also some values that he mentioned about asking great questions…
You only get answers to the questions that you ask.
The most effective way to connect with a person is to ask questions.
Questions unlock door where otherwise remains closed. (Don’t give up! You are just a question away)
Call to build humanity.
Questions allows us to direct the conversation.
Q1 -> Wisdom
Q2 -> Passion
Q3 -> Failure (Attitude)
Q4 -> Who did you know that I should know (Will you help me meet them?)
Q5 -> What have you read that I should read (Personal Growth)
Q6 -> What have you done that I should do
Q7 -> What can I add value to you (Gratitude) Questions allow us to build better ideas
Questions give us different perspectives.
Questions challenge mindset -> Preset.
Questions sets us apart from others.
P.S I don’t have typo error but I did miss the Value 6.
