"Inquiry is agenda setting, language shaping, affect creating, and knowledge creating. Inquiry is embedded in everything we do as managers, leaders, and agents of change."
This nice quote by appreciative inquiry founder David Cooperrider and Leslie Sekerka (2003) eloquently shows how inquiry is important. On what you decide to focus attention and questions can have far stretching consequences (see for instance here and here).
