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.

FORT THOMAS HISTORY AND COMMUNITY LIFE

The City of Fort Thomas, incorporated in 1867, is located in Northern Campbell County, Kentucky, along the Ohio River. With a population of approximately 17,000, it is the most populous city in Campbell County.

The area in which the City of Fort Thomas is now located received the first impetus to settlement and development by conferring of land grants of 1,000 acres each to Samuel and David Perry in 1787. The grants were given by the State of Virginia, which had jurisdiction over this area at the time. Subsequent grants of land to several pioneers of Fort Thomas further encouraged settlement.

The District of Highlands, later to become the City of Fort Thomas, was created March 1867 by a special act of the Kentucky General Assembly. Jacob Hawthorne, an earlier settler of the area, was particularly instrumental in acquiring the charter for the District. Although predominantly rural in character at the time, the District of Highlands became the location of summer homes for some of the affluent citizens of Cincinnati and Newport. The boundaries of the District were very similar to the present city limits.

Two important events in the history of the City of Fort Thomas occurred in 1890. First was the construction of the Fort Thomas Military Reservation was completed and the fort was occupied in that year. Second, was the dedication of rights-of-way for an electric railway through the City. The railway from Newport traversed North and South Fort Thomas Avenues. The Fort and the railway combined with other factors to greatly influence the pattern of development in the City.

The District of Highlands was incorporated as a sixth class city in 1914, and at the same time adopted the name “Fort Thomas” from the military post located here. The post had been named in honor of General George Thomas, the “Rock of Chickamauga” of Civil War fame. In 1920, after growing to approximately 5,000 residents, Fort Thomas became a city of the fourth class.

The years following the end of World War II until 1960 were tremendous growth years for the city with residential construction occurring rapidly. In the early 1960’s a new shopping area was constructed at the southern end of the city.

The late 1960’s through the 1970’s was a season of maturation for Fort Thomas and saw a new city building and YMCA built. Interstate routes 471 and 275 were also completed during this time which increased access to areas surrounding greater Cincinnati and northern Kentucky.

The 1980’s through present times have been categorized by slow, but nearly constant, growth. New developments have occurred primarily as infill or to lots with steeper slopes.

Fort Thomas continues to be a dynamic community committed to improve the quality of life of its residents. The challenge facing residents and city leaders is to maintain and increase the level and quality of public services while protecting the general health, safety and welfare of its residents.

GOVERNMENT

The City of Fort Thomas operates under a Mayor-Council form of government. The Mayor is elected at large for a four-year term. Six members of council are elected at large for two-year terms. The City Council is responsible for adopting ordinances, establishing policies and the general direction of the community. The City Administrative Officer is appointed by the Mayor, subject to approval of City Council. The CAO reports directly to the Mayor and is responsible for implementing policy and overseeing the day-to-day operations of the City. There are numerous Board and Commissions which meet regularly to advise the Mayor and Board of Council. Fort Thomas is a full-service community which provides traditional municipal services including police, fire, public works, recreation, finance, economic development, planning and zoning, building inspection and code enforcement.

The City’s total General Fund Budget is $11,093,243 for fiscal year 15/16. Other special funds, including Municipal Road Aid, Tower Park, Debt Service, Capital Projects, and Solid Waste, total an additional $2,600,000. The City budgets and spends conservatively and maintains a healthy budget reserve to address unforeseen situations.

The City of Fort Thomas maintains approximately 70 full-time employees and up to 30 part-time and seasonal employees. Approximately 75% of the full-time employee base is represented by AFSCME, FOP and IAFF labor unions. The City Administrative Officer is the chief negotiator for each of these union contracts.

Salary $140,000 (DOQ)
Employer City & Borough of Juneau, AK
155 S Seward St
Juneau,AK  99801-1332

The City and Borough of Juneau (CBJ) is the major population and economic center in southeastern Alaska and the capital of the state. CBJ is a unified (combined city and borough) municipality. The CBJ encompasses an area of 3600 square miles and has a population of 32,000. The CBJ operating budget for FY2015 totals over $330 million, with over $150 million under direct control of the City Manager. In addition, the CBJ has an active on-going capital program with total project budgets in excess of $400 million. The organization has 509 FTE (675 employees) coming under the direct authority of the City Manager, 1,050 FTE (1,384 employees) in total.

The new City Manager of Juneau will assume responsibility for an organization that has an established reputation for providing quality services to its citizens. The consolidation of CBJ governments and the physical isolation of Juneau have created a situation in which the CBJ is involved in a uniquely complex variety of services for a City of its size and population. Because of Juneau’s position as the state capital and as the major economic and population center in southeastern Alaska, the City maintains relationships with a number of federal, state, City and local agencies, school district, and enterprise boards. The Assembly is looking for an experienced administrator who has a successful record as a collaborative leader and consensus builder with exceptional communications skills and who is able to bring people of differing viewpoints together.

The culture of the CBJ organization is characterized by empowerment and teamwork. The organization has inculcated a philosophy of collaboration between various departments and divisions and between employees and management through extensive training and development activities and, as a result, has very high morale among most employees. It will be important that the new City Manager be comfortable managing in this kind of environment that places a priority on delegation and accountability.

A Bachelor’s Degree and five years of broad and increasingly more responsible executive management experience in a public sector organization of similar complexity to the City and Borough of Juneau is required. A graduate degree in a professional field of study is desired. Knowledge of and experience with Alaska specific federal laws and programs is a plus.
