The Magic Question:A Simple Question Every
Leader Dreams of Answering by David Cottrell
is an excellent management resource aimed at
motivating people. The book explains in detail
what characteristics are needed to be a good coach.

Cottrell believes that everyone in an organization
should be in synchronization with goals and priorities
for getting things done according to a uniform
metric. The author quotes Von Goethe on the subject
of setting priorities when he states: "Things that
matter most must never be at the mercy of things
that matter least."

A coach defines what is important from the outset.
Explanations to staff and relevant others should
be clear, consistent and simple to interpret or apply.
Frequently, coaches seek out quality feedback so that
projects don't go too far off targeted goals. The
author explains the importance of consulting with
key team members on a periodic basis.

A good coach encourages team members and provides
performance feedback on a regular basis. Most importantly,
people must know that management cares about them and
appreciates their efforts. Lastly, coaches need to remind
team members of what's expected and the timeframe for
project deliverables.

The Magic Question:A Simple Question Every
Leader Dreams of Answering by David Cottrell is an important
work on the dynamics of project management, teamwork,
goal congruency, goal measurement and providing incentives
so that a team can function efficiently. The presentation
is easy to read, understand and apply. A beauty of the work
is that the style of writing is conversational so that the
author emulates typical instruction sets provided in a workplace.
