Build the Next Generation of Leaders
Of course, one of the most important role of a leader is to build the next generation of leaders. In fact, in most businesses, in order to get promoted, a supervisor or manager must first train a replacement for himself or herself. So, when you get good at building leaders around you, you will begin to get noticed as being a strong leader yourself. This session shows a number of skills that will help you grow your own leadership skills and also build the leadership skills of people around you. In Part A of this session, we cover seven (7) ways to build leaders throughout your organization. Then, in Part B, we show participants how to ask the right questions of the people around them to help these people become strong leaders themselves.

Session #10: Building the Next Generation of Leaders
Part B: The Best Leaders Ask the Best Questions
(Approximately 1.5 hrs)
One of the best leadership skills is being able to ask the right question of your team members, at the right time, to elicit an expected response. When we order people around, we might get our team to comply — at least temporarily. However, they won’t necessarily cooperate with us effectively. A better way to help your team is to ask good questions so that they can come to the best solution on their own. This technique also opens up lines of communication very effectively. By attending this session, you can expect the following results:
- Create questions that help your team come to solutions on their own.
- Use questions to open lines of communication.
- Build confidence in your team members.
