Pre-requisites: None


All too often when we interact with people we simply tell them what we think they need to know or what they need to do. This communication habit can lead to some unfortunate, unintended consequences. Sometimes it causes us to miss important opportunities to gather information to make our plan better. Other times it can contribute to colleagues shutting down and not being fully engaged in their work. Asking the right question at the right time can be more important to achieving great results than giving the right order. Come to this workshop to learn how to ask effective questions to open up lines of communication which help generate new ideas and create positive results in the workplace.

In this workshop participants will:

  • Review the 6 types of questions
  • Identify why we do and don't ask questions
  • Define and explore 4 forms of inquiry
  • Practice a "Leader's Question Framework"

Facilitated by: Jules Myers, Professional Development Specialist, Talent Development
