What to Ask the Person in the Mirror
Successful leaders know that leadership is less
often about having all the answers-and more often about asking the right
questions. The challenge lies in being able to step back, reflect, and ask the
key questions that are critical to your performance and your organization's
In "What to Ask the Person in the
Mirror", HBS professor and business leader Robert Kaplan presents a
process for asking the big questions that will enable you to diagnose problems,
change course if necessary, and advance your career. He lays out areas of
inquiry, including questions such as:
(1) Do I clearly articulate
my vision and top priorities?
(2) Does the way I spend my time enable me to achieve my top priorities?
(3) Do I give subordinates timely and direct feedback they can act on? Have I developed
a succession roadmap?
(4) Is my leadership style still effective, and does it reflect who I truly am?
This highly readable and practical guide helps
you learn to ask the right questions-and work through the answers in ways that
are right for you. By asking these questions, you can craft new strategies for
staying on top of your game.
