Limited Capacity seats available

Could the kinds of questions we ask ourselves and others help us become better collaborators, coaches, and impact our very quality of life? Can simply asking better questions improve everything we do? This highly interactive session questions our questioning and reveals valuable techniques for accessing hidden abilities within ourselves and others. You'll be guided through a series of interactive exercises to discover how to use questions that empower and motivate us to access our resourcefulness, re-frame limiting beliefs, and strengthen rapport. You’ll practice using the Precision Model to help you instantly identify five ways we commonly distort our understanding of a situation and use five challenge questions to gain clarity and improve communication. Applying this simple skill will help you achieve new insight into any problem or situation you encounter. You’ll also do an exercise to help you discover better questions that can lead to answers you may not have thought of otherwise, and you’ll identify a burning question you can ask yourself to motivate and drive you towards greater fulfillment. By the end of this workshop you’ll have practiced several techniques for using questions to marshal problem-solving resources and collaborate more effectively.
