At the heart of great management and leadership lies the skill of asking powerful questions. The right questions help us make better decisions, build more inclusive workplaces, promote creative ways of thinking, inspire trust, and many other benefits.
In this class, we will focus on making intentional choices about the type of question to ask, learn how to sequence questions and change approaches when needed, and use active listening and probing questions to get beneath surface answers.
You will leave with a greater understanding of:
The anatomy of a powerful question, and how to ask the right questions, at the right times.
Powerful questions to ask when facilitating coaching conversations, defusing conflict, leading creative brainstorms and other key leadership activities.
How to sequence your questions effectively to get the most out of your conversations.
