6 Questions to Discuss with Your Leadership Team

Sometimes, you just need to pull your team aside for a good discussion…

So, I was asked to help come up with some discussion questions about this era of perpetual innovation. These might be useful for any leadership team’s “let’s think about things” discussion.

#1 – How have our personal lives changed because of new technology? What changes do you think are coming “right around the corner”?

#2 – How have our work habits changed because of new technology? What changes do you think are coming next/soon?

#3 – What kinds of jobs are in danger of being lost or replaced by technological innovations?

#4 – How does the “always on” technological reality endanger the work-life balance?

#5 – What are our customers needing from us next that technological innovation might help us deliver in a better way? In other words, where and how do we need to innovate by adapting new technology?

#6 – So, if this is truly a perpetually innovating age, especially with technological innovation, is our company innovative enough? (Are we an innovative company? An “early adopter” company? An early majority, or a late majority company? A “laggard” company? Why do you put us in the category you put us in?)

You could probably come up with six better questions.  Or, at least, add to or edit these.  But, the discussion could definitely be valuable.  I’ve got a hunch that this is a discussion to have on a pretty regular basis.

What questions would you use for your discussion?
