The Power of Questions

One of the best ways that you can add value to your board is by asking great questions.

The concept is simple … better questions kick start better conversations, which lead to more effective board meetings and, ultimately, better decisions.

DirectorPrep is obsessed with questions. The answers? Well, they'll emerge from the discussions that follow.

Add Value to Your Board with Great Questions

Asking clear, compelling questions is one way you can make a significant contribution to discussions and influence board decisions. Without questions that uncover different viewpoints, it's hard for a board to explore fresh ideas and generate new solutions to a problem.

During a board meeting, you can use questions to clarify information, to launch and build on meaningful discussions, to encourage dialogue, or to challenge assumptions.

"It's not just what you ask, but how you ask it."

No one appreciates an interrogation. Make sure your questions are well-received by keeping these simple guidelines in mind:

  • Wait for the right time to ask.
  • Use a neutral tone of voice.
  • Choose your words with care.
  • Watch your body language.
