Author & speaker: innovation, creativity, and questioning
Introduction
My latest book is about the power of questioning, called A More Beautiful Question (Bloomsbury). A previous book was Glimmer: How Design Can Transform Your Life, and Maybe Even the World (Penguin Press), (retitled CAD Monkeys, Dinosaur Babies, and T-Shaped People for the U.S. paperback). In 2011, I published a novel about Detroit's Purple Gang, called The Purples. I also run an executive-level editorial service called WBLK Media.

Enjoyed my radio interview with Charlie Herman of @WNYC @MoneyTalking. He had some good questions about questioning! Have a listen: http://amorebeautifulquestion.com/wnyc-interview/
My recent good conversation with WNYC.org, where the host challenged me about whether appreciative inquiry is direct and honest enough. You know my opinion.

Getting employees to ask more questions is the easy part; guess what the hard part is? My article "The Power of ‘Why?’ and ‘What If?’" http://nyti.ms/29aWAo1 via +The New York Times  #innovation  
Knowing the answers used to be one of the rules of success, but companies are discovering that asking questions can help generate innovative ideas.

Shane Parrish of the intellectually curious blog FarnamStreetBlog.com riffs on "Why, What if, and How" questioning: https://lnkd.in/er8gQb9
How do we ask better questions, and why does it matter? Warren Berger helps us with his book "A More Beautiful Question," proposing a three-part system.
