Tell Me More
How to Ask the Right Questions and Get the Most Out of Your Employees
Tell Me More: How to Ask the Right Questions and Get the Most Out of Your Employees is a leadership book designed to help leaders of all levels to embrace a simple system of Listen, Learn and Lead. Unlike academic how-to business books, Tell Me More is written in story format, taking readers on an adventure in which serious business issues are explored in fun, relatable and memorable ways. The story is told through the eyes of fictional character Maria Sanchez, CEO of a large vision care and eyeglass company. Introduced to the Listen, Learn and Lead strategy, she uses this framework to help her company and employees move through a company restructure.
It’s not easy to change the way you think, act and react, unless or until you are willing to change your vision or your philosophy about what truly works when collaborating with colleagues. The concepts outlined and demonstrated — through relatable stories and entertaining dialogue in this 2nd Edition of Michael Sherlock’s Tell Me More are simple, yet poignant. Readers will learn to embrace active listening, using the information gleaned while listening to dissect (or unpack ) an issue. Armed with that information, they can then use the strategy further to facilitate solutions that empower their employees.
Leaders of all backgrounds and in all industries will find Tell Me More s characters and challenges to be timeless, and will discover that the communications and leadership strategies can be employed immediately, to reap significant results.
Join Maria and her team on a journey that proves that if you ask the right questions, you can truly get the most out of your employees.
Revised and expanded. With a foreword by Colonel (Retired) Rob Campbell, author of It’s Personal, Not Personnel: Leadership Lessons for the Battlefield and the Board Room.
