I think this is one of the most challenging topics to discuss with entrepreneurs in the office. If you do not have an office, but do you have a business that requires high levels of self-awareness, then this topic is very important to discuss.
It is true that the CEO of Google thinks an “intelligent employee” is the most important thing for a successful business. I agree with him. The smartest thing you can do is train your team to always ask the right questions, and make sure they have the tools they need to do their jobs. But the more self-aware you are, the more likely you are to make the right decisions about how to do the right things.
I see this problem a lot in my work. I will ask questions, I will tell people what I think is important, and I will even, if I am truly self-aware, I’ll ask the right questions if I am unsure about something. And if I am not sure, I will make sure I ask the right questions and do the right thing. But the problem is the less self-aware I am, the less likely I am to make the right decisions.
This seems to be the case with the business development manager. He or she thinks they know everything. Well, they don’t. That is, they don’t know anything, except they know how to ask the right questions. So you might ask these questions, but they’ll see you’re not really self-aware. Then they might say, “Well, you know, if you ask the right questions, and if you do the right things…” Then they won’t ask you anything.
I’ve been guilty of this myself. I’ll ask questions that sound like they have the answer. Then I will ask the right questions. Then I will get the right answer. Then I will get mad. Then I will get afraid. Then I will keep asking questions until I realize I’m just repeating myself.
I know what you’re thinking, but you’re wrong. In most cases these questions are perfectly fine to ask. And if you make good on your promises, you’ll get the answer you’ve been looking for. One of the most important things is to be direct with your questions.
Most of the time it wont be the question that gets you the answer. It will probably be the answer that gets you mad. It will probably be the answer you dont want to get. It will most likely be the answer to your fears. And at the end of the day youll know that you got the answer you were looking for.
The key to doing this is to be direct. It will be a long time before you are asking the question that answers it. And because of this, you have to be direct and to the point.
This is why senior managers need to be direct. We are not in a position to give you the answers you want. We are not in a position to answer your fears either. The only reason that we can answer your questions is because we are the people who have to answer your questions. We are the people who have to answer all of your questions. This is why we need to be direct and to the point.
If you’re the kind of person who thinks that senior managers need to answer every question, you’re probably not a senior manager. If you’re the kind of person who thinks that senior managers need to be direct and to the point, you’re probably not a senior manager. Of course, that’s why you need us — we are who you need.
