What qualities make a great trusted advisor?

Whose advice do you follow?
Having a small circle of trusted advisors is invaluable.

The best advisor is someone who asks you thoughtful questions to help you get clarity on your own answers.
Avoid people who want to tell you what to do or have judgment about your situation.

Keep in mind – a wise person seeks the counsel of others
and at the same time follows his/her instincts and values.



Develop Power with Grace. 
Asking thoughtful questions is one aspect.
The best questions foster understanding, spark innovation, diffuse negative conflict, and build influence –
