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.

Unfortunate religious undertones

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

mixed

The points here are smart but the authors provide a lot of padding that's not necessary. One author reads well the other one is very difficult to listen to.

Found a couple of powerful gems.

At first when I started listening however, I wasn't sure of what I had bought. I continued to listen though and kept comming back to it. Then all of a sudden BOOM! I understood the power behind the power questions concept and when used properly can get you out of seemingly tight and impossible situations, resolve apparently unsurmountable problem, even land the greatest job or contract you can imagine. Worth listening to.

Dissapointment

Any additional comments?

If you are looking for sales question help this book is NOT for you.

Book was generic questions and could have been 20 minutes long for the material that took almost 4 hours for them to cover.

What is the next book you should read? This is it.

Would you consider the audio edition of Power Questions to be better than the print version?

I personally enjoyed listening to the stories but will need to purchase a copy of the print book as this is a very important book.

What other book might you compare Power Questions to and why?

I would include this book on my list of absolute top reads such as The 7 Habits. I will also be reading Mr. Sobel's other books shortly as I hear that All for One is a good read.

Have you listened to any of Andrew Sobel and Jerold Panas ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This unfortunately is the only one available on Audible.

Decent Questions, but bad writing & editing. Bad.

What disappointed you about Power Questions?

This could have been 20% of the length. There are superfluous quotations added that get in the way. Many are cliches. All the music lyrics referenced (yes, this is useless) are boomer-era, of course. 1/3 of the stories are helpful. 2/3 are too generic.

What was most disappointing about Andrew Sobel and Jerold Panas ’s story?

cliche' after cliche'
tired stories
You can play at double speed and not miss a thing. I have never been able to do that w/any other recording.

Any additional comments?

All I need is the list of questions. skip the audible, just get the kindle version.
