In this episode, we are joined by Hal Gregersen, author of The Innovator’s DNA, to discuss his latest book, Questions are the Answer. Hal is a Senior Lecturer in Leadership and Innovation and the Executive Director of the Leadership Center at MIT, and has previously taught at Dartmouth College, The World Economic Forum, and the London Business School.

What was covered

  • Why Hal believes most CEOs have trouble asking questions and how to pivot from answer-centric to question-led leadership.
  • How to be a better leader by asking the ‘different, better question’ and using the ‘power of the pause’.
  • How Hal’s question-first process of reframing of challenges can help us discover the winning solution.

Key Takeaways and Learnings

  • Associational thinking: how observing, networking, and experimenting helps the world’s top leaders find novel solutions nobody has thought of before.
  • Catalytic questions: why challenging our false assumptions of the world forces us to create new beliefs and act on our questions.
  • Question bursts: why receiving no answers to our questions can help us to innovatively solve problems.
