Give questions instead of giving answers. Follow your own advice before considering others', it's far more powerful.
Quanswers. What are Quanswers?
Well, you’ve heard of the Socratic process, asking questions instead of giving answers. You know, lets face it, I might be able to give you great advice, but you are more likely to follow your best advice before you’ll follow mine.
Quanswers are when I know the best answer for your question, but I also know that it’s better for you to come up with the answer that you’ll follow then to give you my own. And that it’s more empowering if I bring your brilliance out of you than put mine into you.
I’ll ask you a quanswer. What a quanswer is, I know my answer to the question but I ask you what your answer would be. So if you said, “What’s the best car to drive, what’s the most reliable car?” I know what I would say, but then I would say, “Well, what’s the car that you think is most reliable?” That’s a quanswer – refusing to give people advice, because the fact is, if you give people advice and they follow your advice, they’re going to hold you accountable for the results. Let them come up with their own advice, it’s far more powerful.
