How To Ask More And The Power Of Questions


"Questions help us break down barriers, discover secrets, solve puzzles, and imagine new ways of doing things, But few of us know how to question in a methodical way," explains Frank Sesno, Emmy-award-winning journalist, and author of the forthcoming book, Ask More.


Set to publish in January 2017, Sesno's book teaches readers how the power of questions:
  • Opens doors
  • Uncovers Solutions
  • Sparks Change
More specifically, he reveals:
  • The power and payoff of targeted diagnostic questions.
  • How strategic questions can ease the hardest decisions and support triumphant outcomes.
  • How and when to use empathy questions.
  • How asking creativity questions help to get people to imagine, set their sights high and soar above failure.
And, "when a leader fails to know where he/she is going, refuses to listen to what he/she doesn't want to hear, or relies on faulty information, bad things happen," adds Sesno.

Sesno also shares that some questions work best when they don't end in a question mark. Examples are:
  • Tell me more
  • Explain that to me
  • Go on
Sesno is a former CNN anchor, White House correspondent, and Washington bureau chief, and is now the director of School of Media and Public Affairs at the George Washington University.

Thank you to the book publisher for sending me an advance copy of the book.
