Based on the title, what do you think this chapter might be about?
• Physical Strength?
• Military Strength?
• Financial Strength?
• Verbal Strength?
• Leadership Strength?
Definitely not the first three! Perhaps it does relate to verbal and leadership strengths—but not the way you are thinking.
Take a careful look at these two questions:
• What should we do to fix this?
• What might we do to fix this?
What is the difference?
Yes, should in the first sentence has been replaced by might in the second sentence.
When you ask your team, “What SHOULD we do to fix this?” might they feel that they must come up with the RIGHT answer before they speak?
Might they be concerned that the immediate response to their answer will be, “That will never work!”
However, when you ask your team “What MIGHT we do to fix this?”— might they be much more comfortable simply sharing POSSIBLE fixes?
Which of these two questions MIGHT increase the possibilities of your team finding a fix for whatever is broken?
Do you now see The Power of Might?
It sets people free to verbalize multiple Possibilities! And just Might dramatically increase the probability of your team finding a solution.
Your use of Might just Might increase your verbal and leadership Might!
