Description

The key to effective communication. Communication is essential in a healthy organization. But all too often when we interact with people - especially those who report to us - we simply tell them what we think they need to know. This shuts them down. To generate bold new ideas, to avoid disastrous mistakes, to develop agility and flexibility, we need to practice Humble Inquiry. Ed Schein defines Humble Inquiry as "the fine art of drawing someone out, of asking questions to which you do not know the answer, of building a relationship based on curiosity and interest in the other person." In this seminal work, Schein contrasts Humble Inquiry with other kinds of inquiry, shows the benefits Humble Inquiry provides in many different settings, and offers advice on overcoming the cultural, organizational, and psychological barriers that keep us from practicing it.

Critiques

“I have had the privilege of working with Ed Schein. Reading Humble Inquiry I could hear his voice asking me those humble questions that joined us in a mutual search for the answer. His book distills what he has learned and practiced in a lifetime of helping high-powered leaders be even more successful.”—Anthony F. Earley, Jr., Chairman, CEO and President, PG&E Corporation

Worth the read

What I loved about this book is that it was a practical guide to implementing what can be a mostly abstract concept. Schein, who I have always trusted as one of the leading voices in organizational behaviour, leadership and change management has taken an anti-oppressive approach often used in the human services field and made it not only relevant but accessible to those in more traditional private or less human focused environments. Not only that but the principles of Humble inquiry can be practice everywhere, which makes this not a "to do" book but a "to live by" book. My favourite kind of learning! Will be listening again and again!

Some good points but just ok

There were some good points, but the book was just ok. Thank goodness audible allows for me to speed up the narration. The narrator was so slow that I was forced to put audible on 2 times normal speed in order to not fall asleep listening to the narrator.

Wholehearted Leadership

Humble Inquiry places priority on building trust and relationships. He saves the self-inquiry process for the end of the book. If more people/leaders could slow down and ask humble inquiry questions, they would have a much different impact on the people around them. This is simply good neuroscience.

Extremely vague

As I went through this book I kept wondering when I would really be told how to put into practice humble inquiry! What a waste, it's nothing I didn't already know about communicating with people...smh

Very dry content

I love learning and listening to audiobooks and podcast but this book was just hard to get down.

I could only listen for 30 minutes before I got bored. It took me a month to get through.

The concept is great and spot on. You could get the idea in 20 minutes.

Not the worst narration if you need it. But would read this one on Kindle if possible.

Get to the point!!!

I would have given this five stars...but. The basic information is very intriguing and pretty good. But this is an audiobook, not a college textbook! I don't want academic references in an audiobook! I also don't want an endless array of case studies where the author waxes on about his whole career. I would rather have a few illustrative case studies and then some practical advice.

As a professional management consultant, I was very interested in his discussion of Level 1, 2 and 3 relationships with clients. I got that, great. Now tell me how to cultivate those levels, how to avoid the pitfalls, etc. Didn't get that. I even bought another one of his books that seemed like it would get into that deeper. It was even worse!
