“The leader of the past was a person who knew how to tell. The leader of the future will be a person who knows how to ask.” 

~Peter Drucker

Listen to most managers and you will hear them telling others what to do and how to do it.  It is only the effective manager who actually leads – by asking questions of his followers and peers.  “How can we do this better?”  “Why do you think we got this result?”  And my favorite, “How can I help you?”  Are you asking questions or are you telling?
