Questions Every Leader Should Consider

Too often we get caught up in "doing our job" to "work on our job". That has been me recently but I am trying to change that. Here are some questions I am considering to help generate change. As an employee

Your boss comes to you and says that you are being replaced by someone who can do your job better.

  • What do you think that new person will concentrate on and do better than you are doing?
  • Why aren't you doing those things?
  • Or at least why aren't you working on them?

 As a supervisor of people

An employee comes to your office and says they are giving notice that they are resigning to go to another company to work at an identical job.

  • What do you think you could have done differently to keep that person on your team?

As a team leader

If you could start from scratch what would your company/department look like?

  • What core values would you stand on?
  • What would be the #1 mission?
  • Who would be on your team?
  • What strategies would you implement to meet the core values?
  • What activities would be started to meet the goals and mission?
