Would you describe yourself as a lifelong learner? Do you ask questions as a leader? Jesus is a great example of asking questions and leading situations.
Asking questions such as, “What do you think? What are your thoughts about this? What do you think is best?” is an excellent way to close out a conversation or an email.
‘Before disaster the heart of a man is haughty and filled with self-importance, But humility comes before honor. He who answers before he hears [the facts]— It is folly and shame to him.’ Proverbs 18:12-13 (AMP)
Jesus was a master of asking questions. As a matter of fact, when you spend time with Him, He asks lots of questions: “What are you thinking here? How could you have responded differently? What does My Word say?” He helps us know what we are thinking even when we are not sure.
In life it’s important to be willing to hear opinions that don’t match our own. Sometimes as a leader that can be difficult, because we think we need to always be right. When you allow people to offer input and ask them questions, you open an opportunity to teach and expand their knowledge as well as yours. Humility comes before honor. Humble yourself and ask questions. Become a lifelong learner.
