With the rise of hybrid teams, economic uncertainty and an ever-increasing number of ‘accidental managers’ ill-equipped to deal with the ‘people’ side of leadership, today’s managers today are struggling to effectively engage and develop their teams in a fast-paced and constantly changing workplace.

The Answer Is a Question reveals how managers across the world can ditch the command-and-control leadership model and adopt an enquiry-led approach that cultivates a new wave of engaged, problem-solving employees – and it starts with how we use questions in a more purposeful way.

The book presents a simple four-step management framework that aims to help leaders adopt coaching-related behaviours to stop firefighting and start asking more powerful questions in order to stimulate higher levels of collaborative, solution-driven teams.
