Why are questions such a powerful tool in so many different kinds of human interactions?
- building relationships
- conflict management
- active listening
- and so many others
Why do coaches consider incisive questioning to be one of their most essential skills? Isn’t giving advice just as effective – and quicker – than asking all those questions? What makes a question powerful? What’s wrong with leading questions, anyway? Is there a neuro-biological basis for the power of questions? How do I formulate questions when I am not an expert; don’t I need to understand the content before I can ask effective questions? What is the difference between open and closed questions? Is it a bad question if there is no clear answer? What are the other factors that influence your questions? How do I construct the most powerful questions?
Do you have questions about questions? Regardless of your profession or position, the skillful use of questions can improve your impact. Join us for an interactive, experiential workshop where we’ll ask and answer questions about questions – and give you a chance to really develop and hone your skills.
