Asking the old questions, according to authors Dick Whitney and Melissa Giovagnoli, means getting the same old answers. And that can be deadly for any group or company that wants to move ahead. Instead, they offer 75 outrageous, thought-provoking questions that clean out the corporate cobwebs and get workers’ minds working in new and productive directions. Drawing from their own experiences as top international business consultants, Whitney and Giovagnoli provide field-tested "cage-rattlers" that can help improve leadership, resolve on-the-job conflicts, stimulate innovation, facilitate better communication, and much more. Additionally, the guide benefits individuals as much as it does teams, small groups, small businesses, and larger corporations.

Whether it's wild ("What crazy idea could triple your sales in 3 years?") or wacky ("How would your mom run your department?") these imaginative thought-provokers will shake up employees and shake loose new action-oriented ideas. Packed with "war stories" detailing how Whitney and Giovagnoli have used these "cage-rattlers" to shatters the complacency of their own clients, this unique guide shows how 75 outrageous queries can improve leadership, resolve conflicts on the job, foster a growth mentality, make innovation happen, push people's motivational hot buttons, facilitate better communication, encourage better time management - and much more!
