The Power of Great Question

Robin LLewellyn will explore the art of questioning and challenge the group to become a better leader through strong questioning skills.

As leaders we have all been in the room with a group of our colleagues who are earnestly working toward a plan or solution.  Then something almost magical happens.  Someone on the team asks a question that changes the entire dynamics of the room.   The question breaks through the tedium and creates excitement and engagement.  It is a remarkably powerful moment.   The question is the spark that gets it all going.

 As leaders we know the power of that moment.  We have seen the power of a great question in action.  As leaders, we have to ask ourselves how we can improve our skills to best utilize questions.  Robin breaks down the characteristics we embody when we ask powerful questions and provides ways to develop questioning skills.  This interactive presentation provides information and activities to incorporate into the leadership toolkits.

Registration is required and open to Williamson County Institute for Excellence Members.

Lunch & Learn training session on Tuesday, February 9th.   The session will begin at 11:30 am and end at 1:30 pm and will be conducted at the Georgetown Health Foundation Community Room C, 2423 Williams Drive, Georgetown, TX 78628.  Drinks and dessert will be provided and there will be time to eat the lunch that you bring between 11:30 and noon.

Servant Leadership and Culture

Robin will be speaking to the Launch Pad Job Club on the topic of Servant Leadership and Culture.

How do Servant Leadership and Culture Intersect?  Is This a Good Thing?

Servant Leadership is a leadership philosophy based on creating business opportunities in a just and caring way.  Culture is the patterns of behavior in the workplace.  If culture eats strategy for lunch, what does it do to leadership?
