About Will’s new book
What is revealed when you authentically connect with the people around you?
In Ask Powerful Questions, Will Wise explains how the questions we traditionally ask are virtually meaningless when it comes to establishing trust. Introducing a set of practical tools for accessing and understanding others by changing the way we ask questions, Will shows how to transform “How are you?—I’m fine, thanks” into a conversation that changes not only how you lead, but who you are as a person. Business professionals, personal coaches, teachers and anyone in a position of leadership will relate to the personal successes and failures Will shares as he unpacks the art of asking questions that elicit unconventional answers. How can we explore the space between ourselves and others, and exchange meaningful perspectives? Just ask—powerfully.
