6 Success Questions You Must Ask

78,688 views

Published on

Progress and innovation - and ultimately success - are significantly influenced by questions which have been asked. Either asked out of necessity or out of general curiosity.

Unfortunately many of us have forgotten how to ask questions. Others have become too lazy to ask them. And again others might not have many opportunities to raise questions or are afraid of doing so. Why?

Let´s face it: Our education systems, way of life, and even the business world is not geared toward questions. Moreover, we often tend to address topics in a superficial manner by asking questions which rather test and reward knowledge (mostly using closed questions) than stimulating inquisitiveness (applying e.g. open questions).

To flip that I suggest to apply the following set of powerful questions both in personal and professional settings.

  5. The WHY ? Question © Andreas von der Heydt – 6 Success Questions You Must Ask
  6. It’s the very FIRST question to ask. It encourages you to step back and think about the deeper purpose, vision and the need for change. Restless and successful companies, often start-ups, are true Why Question Masters. © Andreas von der Heydt – 6 Success Questions You Must Ask

  13. Examples "What if we were to do it like x or y?“ "What if money were no issue?“ "What if I did not run this project?“ "What if our company were not to compete in this market segment?“ © Andreas von der Heydt – 6 Success Questions You Must Ask
  14. The WHAT ELSE? Question © Andreas von der Heydt – 6 Success Questions You Must Ask
  15. It’s a crucial question that is frequently forgotten. It motivates us to change our perspective drastically. It helps us to think on different options and possible alternatives, to think in bolder terms and to further peel the onion. © Andreas von der Heydt – 6 Success Questions You Must Ask

  19. Examples "How I can I improve my life by doing this?“ "How can we best launch the product?“ "How would Peter or Sarah do it? How would company X do it? How would they do it in another industry?“ © Andreas von der Heydt – 6 Success Questions You Must Ask
  20. The WHO?, WHEN? and BY WHEN? Questions © Andreas von der Heydt – 6 Success Questions You Must Ask
  21. To ensure implementation of our answers, ideas, and concepts we need to raise these three sets of closed questions. (note: do not ask any closed question any earlier than at this stage of the evaluation process). © Andreas von der Heydt – 6 Success Questions You Must Ask
  22. Examples "Who will take care of such customer complaints?“ "When can we deliver it?“ "By when will Fred have changed the material?“ © Andreas von der Heydt – 6 Success Questions You Must Ask
  23. Sadly, asking the right questions is not taught in schools. But, using questions in your daily life (asking the right questions to overcome fear of failure, to bring changes to your life, or to help you uncover what you really want to do) is very powerful and assists in triggering improvements and innovations. © Andreas von der Heydt – 6 Success Questions You Must Ask
  24. He who asks a question is a fool for five minutes; he who does not ask a question remains a fool forever. “ (Chinese Proverb) “ © Andreas von der Heydt – 6 Success Questions You Must Ask
