Yesterday, I was reminded of a a useful tool for anyone who works in a coaching or mentoring capacity. Carl George developed a simple list of questions that will enable a leader to effectively open communication with a follower or a group of followers.
The next time you find yourself leading a discussion with someone who is looking for some direction, you can work through these questions with them:
1. How are you? (beneath the surface)
2. What are you celebrating? Where are you winning? What are the victories?
3. What challenges are you experiencing?
4. What do you plan to do to solve these challenges?
5. How can I help you?
6. How can I pray for you?
Hope you find this helpful!
