    1 thought on “Change Your Questions, Change Your Life: 10 Powerful Tools for Life and Work

    1. There are some really basic concepts that could have been covered in half the space, but the story was interesting to follow.

    2. While the content feels a bit obvious and the story than a bit cheesy, I found this book very powerful Shifting from Judger to Learner mindset in daily conversation has profound impact The author provides a great summary at the end for easy reference and I am excited to make concerted effort to implement the ideas I learned Definitely worth the read.

    3. This was a great book The ability to use the Choice Map and go down the learner Path instead of the Judger Path has been a powerful addition to my life My whole business is based on teaching and mentoring people how to achieve success in their lives with better questions QuestioningSuccess So it was even proof of the validity of my core message This is a great read if you are ready to start looking at your questions.

    4. Read this for a work book club Only affirms my distaste for this genre, as the prose was riddled with exclamation points, unfunny jokes and obvious statements about how to exist in the world When one of the biggest takeaways can be boiled down to stop and think , I struggle to justify the two hours I ll never get back post reading this One star only because it hints at the good truth that we are the masters of our own minds and we choose how we react to situations we find ourselves in.

    5. I m amazed that how the author can write a book based on a one page essay There might be some truth in it but it just has been buried under nonsense.

    6. One of the best book I ve come across so far In simple terms, it is all about how our questions can change our life Talk less, and listen When we heed to others, we get to know about what they are trying to convey and we can have insights on what they are talking about A communication will be effective, when each try to ask questions to have a better understanding instead of telling When we try to tell something to someone, it is about we are trying to avoid to listen to them and this may [...]

    7. Written in a somewhat pedantic tone, this book nevertheless introduced how questions play a vital role in solving problems differently, relating to others, and to ourselves The frameworks introduced are intuitive and memorable, with straightforward application for one s own reflection, for coaching sessions, or group meetings I intend to take a few of these question practices back to work and keep them in mind for personal use, too.

    8. I found this book very irritating at first, as I didn t choose it for a work of well written fiction but simply to learn some about asking good questions I found the attempts at descriptions of office carpet etc tedious and irrelevant Eventually the parable got to the point but was quite belaboured and drawn out I suspect to make it PhD worthy The concept is simple we can choose how to respond, with either unhelpful questions that get us stuck or helpful questions that help us move forward, bu [...]

    9. The story leads us through some key principles and questions we can ask ourselves in order to improve our situation The diagram that comes along with the book of how asking questions can open up new paths is something I still refer to.

    10. Work required read 3.5 stars for the ideas, but OH MY GOD save me from the true life story to sell it all I could have just used the charts and bullet points.

    11. With an amateurish story, written to illustrate and advertise her methods, a consultant describes QT, or question thinking While I like the methods, I don t believe the story goes far enough to successfully show how to use the methods in real life Rather, it is clearly a book length advertisement for the program, and an attempt to get the reader to visit Adams website and presumably enroll in training or purchase other materials to flesh out the methods The methods themselves are grounded in pri [...]

    12. There s value in the basic principle, but I think the choice of business fable was the wrong way to write this book.The story is generic and cliche the main character works at a blank company that makes products , is failing in his new leadership position, is introduced to a mentor who solves all his problems His flaws and bad choices are so stupidly obvious that I found myself getting irrationally irritated.Rolled my eyes constantly and half expected the characters to say things like Gee willic [...]

    13. What a great book This author helped me to examine the questions I ask myself when challenging issues arise There is a link referenced in the book to a choice map I downloaded that and hung it on my office wall It has been a great reminder of the fact that I choose moment by moment Do I want to be a learner, and ask myself thoughtful questions, leading to solution focused win win outcomes, or do I want to be in the judger pit asking myself whose fault it is, what s wrong with them, and why bothe [...]

    14. I am amazed by this book It is a total mindset change The ability to stop and consider am I am judgment mode or learner mode, I have discovered I judge others and myself all the time Now that I quickly becoming aware of my thoughts, I am now asking myself the questions about a person, relationship, and or situation and quickly gaining new insight.I can no longer play victim as a result of reading this book No blame game Read this book if you want to change you life no kidding PS as with anythin [...]

    15. I listened to the audio book I found it weird that the reader was a female and the story was told from man s perspective It confused me until I realized what was going on The best thingIi got out of this was the Choice Map We have a choice to take the judger trail or the learner trail If you are struggling with frustration about something, this helps you see how your perception of this situation is the real problem.

    16. Writing 1 starAdvice 4 starsThe most poorly written example of business book as fable that I ve read but had some good recommendations on using inquiry to solve problems Maybe skip the story and go right to the resources at the end.

    17. This is a phenomenal book with some practical and easy to learn lessons and tools I thoroughly enjoyed it and had many light bulb moments as I was reading I highly recommend this to anyone to read Our world would be a much better place if people were in learner mode instead of judger mode.

    18. If we can develop the thinking skills to generate options and then evaluate those options effectively we can all live richer fuller leaves and so can people around us.

    19. Get it Read it Listen to it Audiobook Print the material Start applying it within your team, family and even with yourself

    20. This was written as a story about a person who learns the question acing technique advocated by this book I enjoyed the practical approach to understanding the technique and the challenges faced by one who is learning it.

    21. Excellent book with clear and effective tools to help you change your mindset from negative thinking to positive thinking Very helpful in personal and work environment.

    22. The vast majority of self help motivational books are to put it bluntly either dull or trite I find it hard to get through them and sometimes even relate While this book is geared towards changing ones professional life it can certainly be applied to ones personal life as well About 90% of the book is a fictional yet relatively realistic story about a man struggling professionally as well as personally then applying the principles of the book to achieve success and greater happiness Then Maril [...]

    23. Been learning what impact that question have for our work, for our action then when I m reading this book, I have clear understanding what question can do to the way we think, and the way we take action and decision and the most important thing the way we live our lives Clear description and easy to understand model Judger and Learner Map , instant application on every situation whether in work, or personal life There are several new concepts that enrich my knowledge and understanding My old Par [...]

    24. Written almost as a parable, the lesson of this story is to let go of the need to judge ourselves and others and begin to operate as a learner, making thoughtful choices The idea is that by asking simple but powerful questions we can open up new possibilities and improve the way we get along with our colleagues in the workplace, and our relationships at home too.Seems obvious, and yet it is so easy to forget.This book fits in well with a living in the moment, letting go of ego, approach to life [...]
