In this episode of The Ron Edmondson Leadership Podcast Ron and Chandler Vannoy share some powerful leadership questions.
The best leaders ask the best questions. And great leaders ask a lot of them.
In this episode, powerful leadership questions.
We love hearing from leaders who enjoy these podcasts. Yes, we know they are simple. It is intended to be a quick listen to a conversation between father and son – (and in this one – father and friend) who are both struggling to figure out leadership in our individual contexts.
Ron is a unique leader in that h has experience in the marketplace, government, nonprofits and the church. Even today as a consultant, Ron continues to be a practitioner of leadership. He’s not just talking about leadership, he’s in the trenches with you serving as a full-time pastor.
As always, I hope this episode helps you be a better pastor and leader.

Great questions! These could also be turned around to people who are following, especially those who have a desire to lead in the future. Anticipate being asked these questions.
For example, early on I had a boss ask for an assessment of my area. I started to give him a list of problems, and I called them that. I'll never forget what he told me: "There are no problems, only opportunities." That told me that in my area of responsibility, when giving an assessment, to not just present things that are wrong, but to treat them as areas in which we can improve and grow, especially if I have already thought through solutions. So I learned to anticipate the question and the intended kind of answer.
This helps even if the boss doesn't ask the question. For example, if he tells you something, anticipate the question, "Do you understand?" Maybe there was something in what he said that needs clarification for you. If he never asks the question, it doesn't matter. Ask him for clarification as though he asked the question.
