    Thought Provoking Guide to Working Relationships

    I never realized how the questions I asked myself from one moment to the next could hold me back and stifle other people's right to reach their full potential at work and in life. After reading this book, I had a whole new respect for what Adams describes as "Question Thinking." I actually applied concepts from the book to situations at my own workplace with transformational results. It may not be a miracle worker for everyone, but the concepts discussed in this book are the start to a healthier life and a more productive workplace.

    The story-like progression make the book informative and extremely easy to read. definitely worth picking up. Though the fictional characters may seem to make the book less realistic, it does discuss difficult situations among coworkers, supervisors and staff, as well as in our personal lives - situations and problems we have all encountered in one way or another.

    What more, Adams gives us a relatively easy way to solve them.

    A new way to ask what's going on

    Marilee G. Adams found that she could generate positive changes in her behavior and productivity by changing the defensive questions that she previously asked in the face of adversity. Analyzing those protective questions showed her that she took setbacks and criticism too personally. Asking different questions enabled her to reframe each moment and create growth opportunities. Adams illustrates the problem-solving power of honest curiosity. Her 'QuestionThinking' method generates practical ways to change your mind, literally. These are great ideas however, their repetition within a fictional storyline may annoy some readers, while others may like this allegorical approach to telling the tale. The self-questioning techniques are easy to employ, and will help you examine situations from different points of view, which can come in quite handy. We recommend adding this set of tools to your interpersonal communication toolkit.

    A GREAT READ!

    I read it in two sittings and came away very imp ressed. Adams showed how these principles worrk in both a professional setting add a personal setting. I liked how she talked about cultivating the observer withhin. It did leave me with this question: why not discuss seeing likfe through the third¿person perspective? Doesn¿t that practice autoatically make one more obser vant of oneself? Why were these seven tools left unnumbered? Isn¿t it wiseer to encourage readers to focus on developing one practice at a time? In reality, few people will adopt this system totally. Most will use only those techniiques that apply to their particular situation and needs. Despite these shortcomings, this book has several good points. I liked the Choice Map on pp. 32-33. Thaat did a lot to clarify the material. And if I had only seen that, I would have been helped immensely. Her focuus on oly thse seven tools make the book stronger and more accessible to readers. Thank you, Marilee fo this great book.
