The ASK Framework: Questions that Elevate Your Influence, Performance, and Leadership
by Carole Stizza
If you've ever been on the receiving end of a performance review, you're well aware that the evaluation can be more negative than positive and leave you feeling unmotivated and dejected.
But be prepared to turn the tables in your favor! In The Ask Framework, executive coach Carole Stizza walks readers through how to gain positive, productive feedback from their supervisors, coworkers, and team members. With the right kind of responses, you can understand your strengths and discover your talents, leading to better job performance, more focused leadership, and greater career success.
Through personal illustrations and real-life examples of employees and supervisors who have put Carole's techniques into practice, you will learn to:
- Ask questions that trigger responses that note your gifts and talents
- Control the negative and poorly delivered feedback
- Position yourself to avoid paralysis associated with bad news
- Revel in the value you bring to your workplace
In an era in which many work virtually and struggle with insecurity and feeling invisible, this book offers a simple framework to find the very information that will help you gain critical information on your performance at work.
You'll be encouraged to celebrate your gifts, embrace who you are, and recognize the steps to being your best self - at work and at home.
"When you find out the behaviors and actions you offer, that others brag about, these are the very things you DO NOT HAVE TO CHANGE about yourself."
