About Photo


I am passionate about helping leaders shift their paradigm from the pressure of having to have all the right answers to simply having a few of the right questions.

I have been on the staff of Cru for 53 years and currently serve on the U.S. Leadership Development Team.

In 2006, while browsing in a bookstore, I came across Leading With Questions by Michael Marquardt. I only had to peruse a few pages before declaring, “This is a keeper.”

The ideas in that book changed forever how I looked at leadership, and provided the vision for this website.

What you can expect to find on LeadingWithQuestions.com:

  • Curated wisdom from leaders around the globe
  • Ideas to help you multiply your effectiveness times ten
  • Leadership book recommendations
  • Interviews with thought leaders, authors, and pastors

At LeadingWithQuestions.com, you are invited to join the growing league of leaders who are shifting their focus from having all the answers to asking the right questions.
