By accepting the CEO job at Hewlett-Packard, an iconic company that had lost its way, Carly Fiorina confirmed her status as the most powerful businesswoman in America. But she also made herself a target for everyone who disliked her bold leadership style and resented her rapid rise. For six years, as she led HP through drastic changes and a controversial merger, Fiorina was the subject of endless analysis, debate, and speculation.

In this new expanded edition of her classic international best seller, Marilee Adams shows how the kinds of questions we ask shape our thinking and can be the root cause of many personal and organizational problems. She uses a highly instructive and entertaining story to show how to quickly recognize any undermining questions that pop into your mind - or out of your mouth - and reframe them to achieve amazingly positive and practical results.

Would you listen to Change Your Questions, Change Your Life again? Why?

Yes. I really like the questioning approach. As natural "problem-solver" I found some of the stories familiar and some of the techniques applicable.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

The case studies appeared very simple and not reflecting real business challenges.

Did Anna Crowe do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

In the beginning it was difficult to connect with the reader: female voice describing a male character.

What did you learn from Change Your Questions, Change Your Life that you would use in your daily life?

Self awareness - Observe better. Coaching techniques using questions.

Any additional comments?

Getting a PDF file with the workbook and other resources would be great. I was unable to download from the website without creating an account with them.
