Nancy Lublin, CEO of Do Something, is the author of this week’s Tuesday Reading, “How to Write a Mission Statement That Isn’t Dumb”. Her article appears in the December 1, 2009 issue of FastCompany.
Today’s Tuesday Reading is a piece which I reproduce below “Using Curiosity to Create Accountability with Powerful People” by Roger Schwarz of the Skilled Facilitator.
In his piece, Schwarz notes that when people are accountable to you, you [should] expect then to explain the key decisions and actions they have taken. Yet, when we are talking with people who have more power than we do, we stop asking questions, we stop being curious. In this piece, Scvhwarz suggests four questions that you might ask in these situations along with ways to set the context.
