Publisher's Summary

An arsenal of powerful questions that will transform every conversation.

Skillfully redefine problems. Make an immediate connection with anyone. Rapidly determine if a client is ready to buy. Access the deepest dreams of others. Power Questions sets out a series of strategic questions that will help you win new business and dramatically deepen your professional and personal relationships. The book showcases 35 riveting, real conversations with CEOs, billionaires, clients, colleagues, and friends. Each story illustrates the extraordinary power and impact of a thought-provoking, incisive power question. To help listeners navigate a variety of professional challenges, over 200 additional, thought-provoking questions are also summarized at the end of the book.

In Power Questions you’ll discover:

  • The question that stopped an angry executive in his tracks
  • The sales question CEOs expect you to ask versus the questions they want you to ask
  • The question that will radically refocus any meeting
  • The penetrating question that can transform a friend or colleague’s life
  • A simple question that helped restore a marriage

When you use power questions, you magnify your professional and personal influence, create intimate connections with others, and drive to the true heart of the issue every time.

    "Excellent way to learn how to connect with others!"

    I was hooked from the introduction! The authors did a great job reading and retelling their experiences dealing with Power Questions. I found the information (and questions) applicable and was constantly challenged to dig deeper. The stories they share are relatable and intriguing! I plan to pick up anything else Panas or Sobel have published!

    "Too big of a contrast between the two readers."

    I love the concept and I will definitely use intelligent questioning going forward. there were some really powerful stories in the book as well. it got harder and harder to listen to every other paragraph

    "Unbearable"

    I could not make it past chapter 2... Performance of voice actors made this impossible to listen to. If the is any good info in the selection, I'll never know. What a disappointment.

    "Something NQR"

    Started out OK but then become self-indulgent at the expense of any real message(s). Overall a bit disappointing.

    "Great content. Very tough to listen to."

    The content in the book was amazing and I enjoyed the stories within each chapter. Unfortunately one of the narrators mono tone voices was almost unbearable.

    "Unfortunate religious undertones"

    The beginning was great, but just as you are getting hooked, they start adding Jesus stories and promoting religion.
