Time and again we see high profile corporate failures and disasters that incurred losses and remedial costs collectively totalling billions of dollars.

At their root cause was

  •  the failure of Directors and/or Executives to ask the right questions, and

  • problematic cultures that form and thrive because the right questions weren’t asked.

Three or four well-placed questions at the right time may have avoided those losses, added hundreds of millions of dollars back to the bottom line, averted litigation and regulatory sanctions, and prevented the consequential market cap and reputational losses.

Three or four questions that would have taken only a few seconds to ask!
