Career Compass No. 24: Asking Powerful Questions

My manager seems to be always asking our team questions. In fact, we spend a lot of team time responding to her queries.

We are a high-functioning and productive team but I wish my manager would just come in and tell us where she wants us to go. I thought a leader took charge and made decisions.

 

These are times of great flux—new technologies, demographic changes, and severe financial shifts all are forces disrupting our local government world. In these uncertain times, a manager cannot know all the answers and be certain about direction. While we in government, business, and education have traditionally focused on having the right answers, there are no right answers. Therefore, “a good question beats a good answer.” In these times of great flux, leaders need to harness the energy, creativity, and commitment of everyone to adapt to this disruptive world.

We tend to think that leadership is all about having the answers, making decisions, and determining direction. Ron Heifetz, in his book Leadership Without Easy Answers, emphasizes that the big issues of the day are not “technical challenges” (such as designing a road), which can be addressed by technical experts. Rather, we face “adaptive challenges.” With adaptive challenges (such as addressing a homelessness problem in a community), there are no right or wrong answers; choices often involve value conflicts among stakeholders; and leadership is required to bring people together to do difficult work.

In this kind of environment, the role of leaders is to invite people on a journey whose destination may be unclear. Asking powerful questions is an effective leadership approach in order to engage team members and external partners. Moreover, posing genuine questions allows the leader to demonstrate a little humility and vulnerability and thereby become more human and authentic, enhancing one’s ability to lead. People are less likely to follow if they cannot relate to you on some level as a person.

The Importance of Questions

Why are the right questions so powerful? First, leaders cannot force followers to follow. Therefore, leaders use questions to generate conversations. The poet David Whyte suggests that leadership is the art of conversation. So, who are we engaging in conversations? What is the content of our conversations?

Second, questions are also the key to engaging people and securing their discretionary effort and commitment, without which we cannot be successful as organizations.

Finally, in a disruptive world, learning agility is the critical skill. Technical knowledge (knowing the correct answers or solutions) becomes quickly obsolete in a world of accelerating and non-linear change. Learn-how becomes more important than know-how. The foundation to learning agility is the ability to ask fundamental questions.

Powerful Questions

As a leader, the trick is asking provocative and engaging questions. Anyone can exert leadership by asking questions such as:

  1. Why does what we do matter?
  2. For what ideas are we fighting?
  3. Are we as an organization or department who we say we are?
  4. Why would anyone follow our team?
  5. Are we focused on the right challenge or problem?
  6. What is our organizational culture all about?
  7. How do we sustain our culture?
  8. What if we take a completely different approach?
  9. How do we accelerate our learning?

As Polly LaBarre discusses in her hbr.org blog piece “The Question That Will Change Your Organization,” the more disruptive your questions, the more opportunity that your team or organization will create or shape your future. The questions of “Why?” or “Why not?” or “What if?” will invite possibility, not doubt about the future.

Beginner’s Mind

All of us can lead through asking important questions. To do so, leaders must not only ask questions but be open to the responses. As the Buddhists say, we need to avoid an “expert’s mind.” An expert’s mind is full—there is very little room for new or contrary information or other perspectives. Therefore, leaders who wish to truly engage others must exhibit a “beginner’s mind.” A beginner’s mind is empty and thus open to all kinds of ideas and different views. A beginner’s mind demonstrates authentic curiosity about what is happening in a dynamic world and how we might respond to it.

Leading the Way

To use powerful questions, leaders at all levels must:

  1. Prepare for the conversation and identify courageous questions that will provoke the kind of conversation that the team needs in order to move forward.
  2. Demonstrate some humility and vulnerability by asking questions for which you may not have the answer.
  3. Be open to the responses to your questions and be unafraid of where the conversation may lead.
  4. Make it safe for others to ask questions by modeling—asking tough questions, being non-defensive to the responses of others to your questions, and encouraging others to do the same.

A New Leadership Competency

In our disruptive world of local government, leaders at all levels of the organization must be able to ask questions and start conversations. This new leadership competency will help us engage others in shaping a new future for the organization.

Job Title Village Manager
Job Location 640 NE 114th Street, Biscayne Park, FL 33161
Job Type Full Time
Date Posted Apr 12 2016
Application Deadline May 9 2016
Start Date
Salary $80,000-$90,000 (DOQ)
Employer Village of Biscayne Park, FL
640 NE 114th St
Biscayne Park,FL  33161-6202

BACKGROUND

The Village of Biscayne Park, a residential community with no commercial property, is located in the northeast section of Miami-Dade County. It serves an area of approximately .69 square miles accented by lush medians and a rich tree canopy. There are only a handful of undeveloped lots in this residential enclave, where the 2016 preliminary average assessed value is $185,383 according to the Miami Dade County Property Appraiser’s Office. Architectural styles of houses are nearly as varied as the cultures represented in the Village’s 3,110 residents, all blended together in a quiet, peaceful and relaxed “park” setting.

THE GOVERNMENT

The Village Commission is comprised of a Mayor and four Commissioners. Elections are held every two years where voters vote for three commissioners. The next municipal election is scheduled for Tuesday, November 8, 2016. The top two vote getters receive a four-year term and the third receives a two-year term. At the first commission meeting following an election, the commission selects a Mayor. The Commission-Manager form of government is based on the premise that the responsibility for policy rests with the Village Commission and the responsibility for daily administration and execution of policy rests with the Village Manager.

Under the Charter, the only two positions appointed by the Village Commission are the Village Manager and the Village Attorney. The Village Manager has the full power to hire and fire all other employees. Some are subject to the provisions of collective bargaining agreements (the Police Benevolent Association for the Police Department, and the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades for the Public Works department).

The Village’s assessed value is presently $160 million from last year’s value of $144 million. The budget for FY 2015-16 is approximately $3.3 million with a millage of 9.700.

The Village has 24 full time employees and 3 part time employees. For a small Village, it provides all the standard services that much larger cities provide with the exception of Fire Rescue (which is provided by Miami-Dade County). The Village provides public safety (police and code compliance), public works, parks & recreation and general government services such as building/permitting and finance. Residents expect and receive a high level of service that is provided as efficiently as possible.

THE IDEAL CANDIDATE

The Village is seeking a motivated, experienced, and proactive individual with outstanding communication skills. The individual will be someone who keeps the elected officials well informed and presents them with recommendations and options, will focus on the day-to-day, and will also assist the Village in planning for a better tomorrow. She/he will be a skilled leader, consensus builder and mentor, and who will empower staff to continue to provide efficient and friendly municipal services to meet community expectations.

REQUIRED QUALIFICATIONS

The ideal candidate will have at least five (5) years progressive senior level experience in a municipality. The individual is expected to have at least a bachelor’s degree in business administration, public administration, urban planning, law, finance, non-profit, or related field. Candidates selected for interviews will be required to provide copies of college transcripts. Individuals with other particularly strong credentials will also be considered, such as a demonstrable record of strong fiscal management. A successful candidate must be able to be bondable and provide a surety bond acceptable to the Village, at Village cost. Membership in the International City/County Management Association (ICMA) and the Florida City and County Management Association (FCCMA) is a plus, as is participation in local professional organizations and civic activities.

DUTIES

The Village Manager is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Village in providing a full line of services to its residents under the provisions of the Village Charter and its Code of Ordinances. This is a full-time position; the hours are as necessary to fulfill the duties and include evening commission meetings. The duties outlined in the Village Charter are:

  1. Responsible for the hiring, supervision and removal of all Village employees.
  2. Direct and supervise the administration of all departments and offices, but not Village boards, agencies, committees or authorities, unless directed by the Commission from time to time.
  3. Attend all Commission meetings and have the right to take part in discussion but not the right to vote.
  4. Ensure that all laws, provisions of the Charter and acts of the Commission, subject to enforcement and/or administration by him/her or by officers subject to his/her direction and supervision, are faithfully executed.
  5. Prepare and submit to the Commission a proposed annual budget and capital program.
  6. Submit to the Commission and make available to the public an annual report on the finances and administrative activities of the Village as of the end of each fiscal year.
  7. Prepare such other reports as the Commission may require concerning the operations of the Village agencies, boards, committees, authorities or departments.
  8. Keep the Commission fully advised as to the financial condition and future needs of the Village and make such recommendations to the Commission concerning the affairs of the Village as she/he deems to be in the best interests of the Village.
  9. Execute contracts, deeds and other documents on behalf of the Village as authorized by the Commission.
  10. Appoint a Clerk. The Manager cannot appoint himself/herself as Clerk.
  11. Perform such other duties as are specified in the Charter or as may be required by the Commission.

Other attributes of the successful candidate for the Village Manager for the Village of Biscayne Park include:

• A confident, intelligent, accessible, forward-thinking, pro-active, entrepreneurial, transparent, consensus building leader who listens to residents and knows how to effectively empower staff and to work effectively with other units of local government in the area.
• Ability to “roll up your sleeves” and work alongside your department heads.

The City has an approved Joint Planning Agreement (JPA) with Lake County to manage future growth, especially in our planned Innovation District area. With commercial development increasing along our highway corridor and housing development rising out from the prior recession; Mount Dora is poised for a renaissance of change and growth. Striking a satisfactory balance among strongly divided preservationist and pro-development community factions will be critical to the future success of the City. Mount Dora is considered "Someplace Special" by its residents and visitors as evidenced by the accolades and recognition given this community such as being in the top 100 towns in "Great Towns of America," the "Best Antique Shopping in the South" by Southern Living magazine, the "Friendliest Small Town in Florida" by Florida Monthly magazine, and a "Top 20 Visit for 2014" by the Smithsonian.
