From Our Editors

Questions are an integral aspect of communication and as such, the kinds of queries we make are of vital importance. In The 7 Powers of Questions, motivational speaker Dorothy Leeds explores the importance of asking questions. She reveals that questions can stimulate, persuade and ultimately reflect a person’s curiosity and caring heart. Within her book, she demonstrates how certain questions can improve all kinds of relationships - from the boardroom to the bedroom. Questions afford people the ability to understand what people really want and further, they can unlock opportunities that would otherwise go undetected.
