哈佛大學教育學院院長提出的五個關鍵問題──

◎「等下,什麼?」(“Wait, what?”)
◎「我想知道為什麼……?」(“I wonder why …?”)
◎「我們不能至少……嗎?」(“Couldn’t we at least…?”)
◎「我能怎麼幫忙?」(“How can I help?”)
◎「真正重要的是什麼事?」(“What truly matters?”)

不管在學生時代或出社會,我們常常花太多時間尋找正確解答,甚至在資訊不足的狀態妄下結論。然而,問題其實與答案同等重要,因為好的問題激發我們跳脫既定觀念的舒適圈,探索困難、未知、棘手或甚至令人不愉快的議題,也對於做出有依據的評斷與決定十分重要。不過,問好問題不是件簡單的事情,我們不僅需要跳脫簡單解答的框架,更需要勇氣與技巧,在問好問題的同時,不觸發對方的防禦心理,更要對於新想法抱持開放態度、質疑未受到證實的假定,並且願意聆聽。

哈佛大學教育學院院長從政治、歷史、社會運動、流行文化與個人的人生經驗中舉例,不停提出關鍵的五個問題,激發我們思考重要議題。即使他的演講對象是未來的教育者,這五個人生的重要問題卻也適用於各領域,不僅對於人生有極大幫助,對於居於領導地位或具有影響他人力量者,也十分受用。

本書幽默而深具啟發性,幫助您理解、產生新想法、激發進步、鼓勵負責任、並專注在真正重要的事情上,將會永遠改變您思考問題的方式!

Based on the wildly popular commencement address, the art of asking (and answering) good questions by the Dean of Harvard University’s Graduate School of Education.

Whether we’re in the boardroom or the classroom, we spend far too much time and energy looking for the right answer. But the truth is that questions are just as important as answers, often more so. If you ask the wrong question, for instance, you’re guaranteed to get the wrong answer. A good question, on the other hand, inspires a good answer and, in the process, invites deeper understanding and more meaningful connections between people. Asking a good question requires us to move beyond what we think we know about an issue or a person to explore the difficult and the unknown, the awkward, and even the unpleasant.

In Wait, What?, Jim Ryan, dean of Harvard University’s Graduate School of Education, celebrates the art of asking—and answering—good questions. Five questions in particular: Wait, what?; I wonder…? Couldn’t we at least…?; How can I help?; and What truly matters? Using examples from politics, history, popular culture, and social movements, as well as his own personal life, Ryan demonstrates how these essential inquiries generate understanding, spark curiosity, initiate progress, fortify relationships, and draw our attention to the important things in life—from the Supreme Court to Fenway Park. By regularly asking these five essential questions, Ryan promises, we will be better able to answer life’s most important question: “And did you get what you wanted out of life, even so?” At once hilarious and illuminating, poignant and surprising, Wait, What? is an inspiring book of wisdom that will forever change the way you think about questions.
