If you give people the answers, you truncate their growth. That’s why I prefer asking them questions. If you want to develop people to their fullest potential, ask them questions that they have to wrestle with, think about, and answer. If you take the time to dialogue in this way, you can develop a person further than you may think they can go. It’s a powerful process.
See this 3-minute youtube video for an example of how I engaged in this process with an executive assistant.
