Asking Catalytic Questions – Before It’s Too Late

Powerful organizational and industrial forces can keep any business executive from hearing (or asking) uncomfortable questions, and creating a “good-news cocoon,” at his or her own peril. It can be exceedingly dangerous in an era when dramatic market shifts can happen unexpectedly. In this talk, Gregersen discusses how leaders and organizations can escape the innovator’s most dangerous blind spot, the space where “we don’t know what we don’t know.” Based on in-depth interviews with more than 200 of the world’s best question-asking leaders, including Charles Schwab’s Walt Bettinger, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, Tesla’s Elon Musk, Pixar’s Ed Catmull, and General Stanley McChrystal, he reveals three daily disciplines these executives rely on to surface the right questions. Gregersen also helps audience members become better questioners in real time by sharing key questioning tools and helping them unlock solutions, innovations and processes.
