    Marquardt¿s Leading with Questions is a rare ¿must have¿ to read

    Marquardt’s Leading with Questions is a rare “must have” to read AND use for anyone involved with getting better ideas, solutions and results through others. 

    I recommended it for leaders. I have used it successfully as a VP in a Fortune 250 and as a GM of a 35 person consulting firm. It also has application in non-profits, schools, service organizations and even government agencies. In short, for anywhere where people work, or should work together.

    I also recommend it for those working on or those who aspire to be leaders. The techniques in this practical evidence-based book hold the opportunity for ANYONE working with or side-by-side others to help bring about better overall results. You need not be an official leader to use this book and help others to enrich team results.

    Not in the above circumstances personally? Consider giving it as a gift to someone who is. I wish it was part of the curriculum for the college students of the world.

    Instant success!

    This book actually taught me a lot about my upbringing. Asking thought provoking questions develops the questionees mind. Building a strong team or company starts with developing the individuals in it.

    Great for coaches or network marketing.
