One of the best things about this book is the introductory chapter where Tim describes lessons learned in asking good questions over the years.

These lessons include:

  • Sequencing of the questions for maximum impact.
  • Starting with simpler questions as a warm up for the brain. This is no different than warming up before a workout.
  • How and when to best approach busy people to get questions answered.

The ability to ask good questions is extremely valuable for building great projects and professional development.

Resource - The Five Minute Foreman
The Five-Minute Foreman by Mark Breslin is our most recommended book for Foremen in any sized contractor. The writing style, digestible chunks, and companion workbook are a great combination. We have never heard any Foreman not absolutely love this book.
