Regardless of your role—as a chief learning officer, an instructional designer conducting a needs assessment, a trainer facilitating content in the classroom, an executive coach working with a leader, a manager supporting her team, or a performance consultant doing a front-end analysis—a critical skill is the ability to ask questions that open up insight.

Telling or lecturing someone rarely builds understanding. Asking wise questions can promote critical awareness and generate the understanding necessary for success. This webcast will look at a range of question roles and scenarios as well as provide examples of powerful questions.

By the end of this webcast, you will:

  • Learn how to use questions to move clients past order-filling requests.
  • Improve your ability to identify questions that provide fresh insight.
  • Identify questions that encourage clients to rethink their problems.
  • Get lots of sample questions you can use right away for specific categories and challenges.

Be sure to submit a question when you register for the webcast.
