Great managers ask great questions

From Five Things Every Leader Should Do by Brad Smith:

Lead With Questions Not Answers

The best leaders don’t need to have all of the answers. They surround themselves with great people, and ask the right questions. It’s not what you know. It’s the questions you ask that help you become a more effective and inspiring leader.

The two greatest indicators of what we view as important are (1) how we spend our time and (2) the questions we ask.

Notes:
(1) Cf. The power of asking questions: What Warren Buffett asked Bill Gates
(2) Cf. How to ask great questions
