Change Your Questions, Improve Your Results

A question can be an invitation, a request, a catalyst - or a missile. This course shows how to avoid the latter and instead, shape effective, generative questions for the best results. Business success depends on the questions we ask ourselves and others, with the best questions leading to positive outcomes. The most effective questioners are deeply and genuinely curious. Comfortable with “not knowing,” they care about the impact of their questions on respondents as well as the answers they elicit.

The course focus is on the mindset of the questioner as well as the design of the questions, and explains why the way questions are asked impacts results. The methodology and tools in the course support positive and productive conversations and meetings; and strengthen leadership, team, organizational development and change initiatives.
