Innovation expert and questionologist, Warren Berger, studied hundreds of the world’s foremost innovators, entrepreneurs and creative thinkers to learn how they ask questions, generate original ideas and solve problems. Author of eleven books, Warren also writes for Fast Company, Harvard Business Review, Wired Magazine, and The NY Times. We delve into "A More Beautiful Question" to unlock the power of curiosity to help us better performer in every aspect of our lives. We explore the power of a beautiful question.   When people ask Warren what he does, how does he like to reply Warren was a journalist for the NY Times and Wired Magazine. In a room of 20 journalists, what makes a great journalist? What’s the process of great journalistic enquiry? What makes a more beautiful question?  Do we sometimes not stay with questions long enough? Do we jump to the solution too quickly? Are we in a society of doing, rather than thinking and questioning? Is there a relationship between improving our listening skills and asking more questions? Netflix was born out of a question; what was the question? Does a leader who asks questions display weakness? Do people assume that as a leader, you know all the answers? Do we need to put aside ego to ask beautiful questions? To ask a beautiful question, do we need to put aside assumptions? Is it incumbent upon a leader to create a safe house for people to ask questions? Should asking questions become a habit of the mind?  Why asking a question of yourself says to your brain, "hey, think about this." "How might I?" vs "How can I?" At what point in our growing up did the curiosity and desire to ask questions diminish? What has the impact of search engines had on inquiry? What’s the best and most beautiful question Warren has ever been asked? Warren’s favourite song with a question in the title?   LINKS   Warren Berger website http://warrenberger.com   A More Beautiful Question website http://amorebeautifulquestion.com   Song List http:/amorebeautifulquestion.com/50-question-songs/   The Mojo Radio Show http://www.themojoradioshow.com   The Mojo Radio Show on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/TheMojoRadioShowPodcast/   The Mojo Radio Show on Twitter https://twitter.com/tmrspod   The Mojo Radio Show Answering Machine 08 7200 6656 08 7200 MOJO   The Mojo Radio Show copyright Gary Bertwistle & Darren Robertson   Products or companies we discuss are not paid endorsements.

What a Ride!”
