    Recommended by a close friend and mentor, I found the 5 questions to be practical and thought provoking Some of what this book relies on has me a bit skeptical though pragmatism and humanism both carry flawed philosophical foundations that I don t agree with as a believer Namely, that we can create our own morals based on what we want to believe The five questions are What are the net, net consequences What are my core obligations What will work in the world as it is Who are we What can we live with Nonetheless, this is what I am taking away from this book and the 5 questions Many problems are incorrectly defined Decisions are made not based on what we know about the problem but who we are our intelligence, feelings, imagination, life experience, and sense of what really matters Management is viewed as a second class citizen to leadership but it should not be All great leaders were effective managers who got the process right New word bossthink where we go on autopilot and just agree with our bosses Values need to be really considered as to what they mean, e.g integrity and quality, and we need to see that our actions reflect or don t what we value Ben Franklin said in Poor Richard s A...

    Sounds simple, doesn t it Master five timeless questions to help resolve the toughest problems in your workplace, getting a handle on grey areas that often test a manager s patience and skills The author believes that his five question framework will redress the balance of being an analytical manager with that of a human manager, providing a way to fill the gap when analytics just don t cut it Five questions What are the net consequences What are my core obligations What will work in the world as it is What do we really stand for and What is my best judgment and best self If you can answer them, the future might be a lot brighter The book itself was interesting and the concept engaging On a personal level this reviewer had a difficulty engaging with it, but sometimes books are like that they are a very personal thing and through no fault of the author there is just a bad connection going on There was no feeling of wastin...

    Interesting, almost philosophical in the best meaning and also pragmatical also, at its best meaning approach to the difficult managerial problems How to proceed in the unsure, difficult situations Mr Badaracco offers the 5 questions approach What are the net, net consequences What are my core obligations What will work in the world as it is Who are we What can we live with Some of the questions are ethical, some are pragmatical.And I find them quite useful Well, everyone operates on the music of their own drums, so to say I can attest to the emotional approach in my case, so i definitely need to add the question What will work in the world as it is into my deciding process The book also contains some useful techniques and tips on how to operate on these questions.While I could think about ...

    The author is clearly very smart, and the essential framework seems like it could be extremely useful However, the book is largely humanist and self admittedly so , and the author s own ideas about religion and humanity pervade the univers...

    Badaracco offers a humanist approach to grappling with decision points in the gray Overall, difficult to argue with many of the points However, he is very repetitive and his constant devil s advocate statements while good in being honest seem to undercut his arguments at points Seems like furthe...

    Read this for my Library Administration Management course Very meh The five questions were somewhat valuable, I guess, but the underlying rationale made me not buy in to the ideas There were too many assumptions made about human nature, core responsibilities and what counts as a good life Overall, I ...

    The core task of managers is that what we call gray areas These are the challenges whose answers are not easy Managers face these kinds of problems every day Will you promote someone who has a stellar record but cannot work with his colleagues well Will you fire someone who is underperforming despite the fact that he is friends with the owner of the company What will you do if your subordinate messed up pretty badly by following your orders Many questions harder than these surrounds managers every day Thankfully, this book gives us the 5 questions that we should ask to help deal with those gray areas.These 5 questions should all be considered whenever one is faced with the gray challenge This book does a good job of explaining each of the questions The meaning is deep The explanations are easy to understand and at the same time goes deep into human psyche.Another remarkable thing about this is that each questions are not considered in isolation The author ...
