The power of questions

A 45 minute Tutorial by:

Claire Ashcroft


About this Tutorial

Never underestimate the ability of a well-chosen (or sometimes chance!) question to cut through underlying beliefs to help people move forward.

Questions can be like keys that open doors to unlock the potential of teams and individuals on an agile journey. This interactive session has been designed using principles that are based on how the brain learns best. During the session you will have the opportunity to experience why questions can be so powerful and participate in a group coaching session designed to demonstrate how impactful they can be.

I'll explain how the brain takes in and processes information and introduce the NLP Communication Model. We'll conduct an exercise to overload the brain with information and show that we can only take in between 5 and 9 pieces of information at any one time.

This is why questions can be like keys that open doors. They can unlock our thinking and help us gain new perspective / explore possibilities / focus / divert our attention.
