Asking the right questions is a hallmark of leadership and can help advance careers, according to personal accountability expert Kristin Lindeen, the featured speaker at the Network of Executive Women Twin Cities event, Oct. 3, 2011, at the Sheraton Minneapolis West in Minnetonka, Minn.

Lindeen took more than 300 NEW members on "a journey to understand the power of the question behind the question.” The power of a well-constructed question can increase an employee’s contributions to a company and her perceived value in the eyes of others, both in work and in life, she said.

Learning how to ask the question behind the question eliminates blame, victim thinking complaining and procrastinating, Lindeen said.

"I appreciated Kristin Lindeen’s ability to utilize storytelling to illustrate and reinforce the leadership competencies of asking the question behind the question," said Joanne Lauchner, NEW Twin Cities college outreach leader. "She shared personal stories and creative examples that illustrated the positive impact of personal accountability."

Added another NEW member: "I have found myself referring to her 'better questions' at least once a day since the event."

Companies represented at the event included The Coca-Cola Company, ConAgra Foods, Del Monte Foods, General Mills , Hormel Foods Corp., Kellogg Company, Kraft Foods, PepsiCo, Procter & Gamble, Schwan’s Consumer Brands, SUPERVALU, and Target Corporation.
