If people don't ask - Why Frank wrote this book
What inspired you to write this book?
Frank Sesno: What inspired me to write this book was a number of things—being a questioner myself, doing it for a living, doing it with people from all walks of life, and seeing around me how much was left on the table because others didn’t ask questions. When I was at CNN, a senior executive joined the company, and I watched him ask no questions as he arrived. Ultimately, he was not successful. I have been on boards of trustees and I have covered presidents. And thinking about leadership, I’ve found that when you don’t ask questions, you don’t find stuff out.
So what I wanted to do was come up with a more coherent approach. I came up with categories of questions. But really, the reason why I wrote [the book] was because I’ve found that if people don’t ask, they don’t know. If they don’t ask, they don’t have an opportunity to listen. And if they don’t listen, they don’t learn. My observation is, I’ve done this for a living, but I see around me so many opportunities for people to go so much deeper on so many different levels. That’s what I wanted to share.
