It has been said that it isn't the person who talks the most that is in control of the conversation, but the one who asks the questions, contrary to how it might feel. That is why, Good Leaders Ask Great Questions by John C. Maxwell, is such an amazing reference tool for anyone in any level of business. It helps with all kinds of situations and provides you some helpful advice you can use to not only get you through difficult situations on the job, but also to help you articulate your position and move you ahead in the corporate world. Some questions you might be interested in are: What are the top skills required to lead people through difficult times? How do I get started in leadership? How do I motivate an unmotivated person? How can I succeed working under poor leadership? When is the right time for a successful leader to move on to a new position? How do you move people into your inner circle? And so much, much more. In fact it was two of those very questions that prompted me to pick up this book. My husband's company has been going through a standard reorganization as well as a lot of the higher ups are moving into retirement. Hence, the reason for wanting to know what you might want to do when working for someone who is less than skilled at the position that have been asked to take on temporary when they truly lack the skills to do their job? Is is time to move on or simply find a way to hold on for now? How do you handle that in dealing with a team as well as your own internal and external contacts that are less than thrilled with whom is selected? This book was a true god-send for my husband. It provided him with the necessary questions to pose his temporary boss but also to address himself before he reached out to address the situation. The advice was well thought out and even gave him some insight he hadn't considered such as the implications is this is not handled or received well. It definitely is like having John C. Maxwell by your side as a consultant. I received Good Leaders Ask Great Questions by John C. Maxwell compliments of Center Street Publishers, a division of Hachette Book Groups for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation aside from a free copy of this book, in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinions. Oh how I wish I would have had this book when dealing with so many situations when in a corporate world. It would have made my life much easier and thus the reason for a 4 out of 5 stars.

The girl walks in, her hips swaying. Her face is hidden by a hood, but long, curly, black hair is visible, along with blood red lips. She smirks, her hidden eyes surveying her surroundings. "Well, isn't anyone going to entertain the new-comer?"
