Leaders Who Ask: Building a Fearless Culture by telling less and asking more

When we tell people what to do, they may listen, but they are unlikely to commit to action and are even less likely to remember. When we ask great questions that lead to insight, there’s an emotional component triggered in the brain that leads to commitment and accountability. The Leader Who Asks uses these strategies and more to connect deeply, lead fearlessly and achieve  transformational results.

If you are leader who relates to one or more of these challenges, you need this book:

  • Having all the answers and needing to be in control feels like hard work
  • Staff engagement is patchy and not everyone is on board
  • Leadership bench-strength is lacking
  • Results are inconsistent, with people not following through on their commitments
  • Your team is performing well and yet you know more is possible

Leaders Who Ask leverage coaching capabilities and questioning techniques to create Fearless Cultures and ensure the right work gets done.

‘Leaders Who Ask’ is also the topic of Corrinne’s keynote Ask More. Tell Less. Lead Fearlessly. Creating Fearless Cultures and saving the world, and the basis of a training program builds leadership and underpins cultural transformation.

Developing Direct Reports: Taking the guesswork out of leading leaders

Human behaviour is complex. Developing leadership in others takes more than knowing the theory and authorising the training budget. Bringing out the best in your people can be challenging and time consuming.

Written for leaders who lead leaders, this book addresses the 12 most common, globally recognised leadership derailers.

Packed with examples, insights and recommendations, and supported by a practical framework, this book shows you how to:

  • understand what’s really driving the dysfunctional behaviours you observe
  • become a catalyst for behaviour change that sticks
  • take the guesswork out of developing your direct reports.

It’s time to empower your leaders to get out of their own way; realise their potential; and deliver on individual, team and organisational goals.

With her co-authors—fellow leadership experts Anneli Blundell and Belinda Cohen—Corrinne is on a mission to take the guesswork out of developing direct reports and this book shows you how.

‘Developing Direct Reports’ is also the topic of Corrinne’s keynote The 12 Leadership Derailers: How to avoid the 12 leadership archetypes that sabotage careers, and the basis of a Master Class that helps leaders develop leaders.
