I was listening to a leadership podcast a few weeks ago, and one of the guests mentioned the seven questions John Maxwell likes to ask someone he meets for the first time. It got me thinking that since I am about to embark on eight weeks straight of conference travel, where I hope to spend some time learning from you, I ought to develop my own list. But first …
John Maxwell’s List
- What is the greatest thing you have ever learned in life?
- What are you learning now?
- How has failure shaped your life?
- Who do you know that I should know?
- What should I read?
- What have you done that I should do?
- How can I add value to you?
Steve Moran’s List
Here is my list, and I am hoping that we will cross paths in the coming weeks and I can ask you some or all of these questions.
- What are you doing to make the world of senior living better?
- What makes what you do unique?
- What is the most important lesson you have learned from either failure or success this year?
- What are you spending a lot of time thinking about right now?
- What are you reading, watching, or listening to that I should or should not be paying attention to?
- Do you have a story we should be telling?
- What should we be writing about?
- How can I be helpful to you?
Do you have a suggestion for better questions? Do you want to take a shot at some of these questions in the comments?
