When NOT to Have All the Answers: Stop Giving Advice and Start Asking Questions (Judith Mills, Christopher Avery) LIMITED

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

Many coaches, leaders, and collaborators struggle to get others to engage, to step up and take ownership, to commit to the process. What to do? One thing would be to examine our own behavior. What’s our own ratio of giving advice versus asking empowering questions?

This workshop will expose a simple and powerful lesson about being in a position of authority as a coach, mentor, or leader: That giving advice may be the worst thing you can do when you want others to take ownership; and asking empowering and thought-provoking questions may be the best thing you can do.

In this hands-on workshop you will practice asking different types of questions in different contexts and experience the difference between listening to yourself give advice and engaging and empowering others.
