Lindsay Tighe Featured In Bob Tiede’s Development Blog On Leadership Qualities

Beechworth, Victoria based Empowered Conversations is proud to share that their founder was recently featured in Bob Tiede's leadership development blog, Leading With Questions, along with an excerpt from her brand new book.

On his website, Tiede shares his passion for helping people in leadership positions throughout the world. He considers it his mission to help shift their paradigm from the pressure of having to have all the right answers to simply having a few of the right questions. He has been on the staff of Cru for 50 years and currently serves in the US Leadership Development Team.

“Better Leaders Ask Better Questions”

In Leading With Questions, those aspiring to be better leaders can find curated wisdom from leaders around the globe, ideas to help multiply their effectiveness, leadership book recommendations, interviews with thought leaders, authors, pastors and more. Tiede is focused on building a community of leaders who are shifting their focus from having all the answers to asking the right questions. Empowered Conversations founder Lindsay Tighe’s expertise in leadership — and her years of experience as an Inspirational Coach — have earned her the featured spot in Leading With Questions.

Tighe has established herself a successful and highly regarded speaker, businesswoman, author and coach who is passionate about inspiring people to improve their own lives and the lives of others. She is committed to changing the world by helping people to have more empowered thoughts and conversations with each other in order to tap into their own wisdom by asking better questions.

Having left the corporate world in 2002, Tighe started her own business in Inspirational Coaching. Initially, the business’ focus was to provide inspiring training and coaching opportunities. Starting off with around 10 employees, Lindsay grew her business to a point where she realized she had more to offer. She created the Better Questions brand and published her first book, “The Answer – Improve Your Life By Asking Better Questions”, in 2009. This led to her creating a new workshop and multiple resources and since then her work has been shared with thousands of people throughout Australia as well as in New Zealand and Singapore. In 2021, Lindsay evolved her brand further to share her work with the global audience, and Empowered Conversations was born. Here, Lindsay consolidates her life’s work into offering workshops and resources that provide a powerful and unique opportunity for people to learn how to think and act differently.

In her newest book “Better Leaders Ask Better Questions”, Lindsay delves into how anyone can be a better leader simply by following the right line of inquiry. She puts forward the idea that leaders can evolve to become a ‘potentialiser’ (a catalyst that brings out the best in others) simply by changing their approach. According to Lindsay, leaders who command less and ask proper, fulfilling questions can create a team that is more engaged and empowered.

In the book, both leaders and aspiring leaders will find the key to enhance their leadership style by learning what actions can be an inhibitor of potential, how leaders need to redefine their role by changing their mindset, why better questions are so powerful and perhaps most importantly, how to actually ask better questions and release the potential in their team.

Tighe says, “I have always believed that great communication skills are fundamental to not only building good relationships, but also enabling other people to be more capable, empowered, engaged and motivated, leading to better outcomes being achieved. I have led my life by this example, and I have found that it is the most effective way to properly lead a team. Most people communicate in a habitual and inhibitive way, without ever realising that is what they are doing, and they lose so much in the process. I am hoping to help people change that mindset and become better leaders through Better Questions.”

Tighe has taught corporate leaders, health professionals, aged/disability professionals, educators, parents and more, and her clients include APM, Telstra, Local Government, Feros Care, Large Hospitals, NDS, APNA, Diabetes TAS, Carers Victoria, Uniting Care, Schools, Baptcare, Mission Australia, Silverchain, Regional Primary Health Networks, MINDA, Community Vision, OT AUS and more.
