Four Questions to Help Leaders Get Unstuck

Leaders face unprecedented challenges today. In an ever-changing and growingly complex business and social environment, it’s understandable that leaders get stuck, unsure how to move forward.

In our work coaching clients, higher-order reflection on simple but powerful questions unlocks potential and opens up profound opportunities. We’ve found these four questions helpful for leaders to reflect upon.

  1. Who do I choose to be for this time?

This question empowers leaders to clarify their core values in a way that connects to their identity. This introspection allows for an aspirational vision of self to emerge to guide future thought and action.

  1. How can I care for & connect with others?

Being stuck sometimes feels lonely. Connecting with those around you can be uplifting. Further, shifting your attention from yourself to caring for others generates a spirit of service necessary for good leadership.

  1. How can I contribute to the goal and the group?

Reflecting on your strengths and skills reminds you of what you have to offer. This question also helps you to see your limitations so you can recognize when it might be best for you to step back and empower someone around you.

  1. What can I learn from this experience?

Outside of your comfort zone is where the learning happens. Intentionally identifying the insights you can draw from experience enables you be better in the future. Simply put, the best leaders are the best learners.

Keep these questions close so they are near when you feel stuck!
