Coaching SIG – Incisive Questions

by SDF 0

The next Coaching SIG workshop – Incisive Questions – takes place on Monday 10th October, 1.00-2.30.

We all know coaching depends on asking great questions. As facilitators of other people’s thinking however, we sometimes find it hard to cut through the personal or organisational narrative we are presented with.  Finding ‘the right question’ to unlock someone’s thinking can be tricky and sometimes we might ask ourselves…

What’s really going on here?

In this session, John Drysdale will take us through some ideas to help us achieve greater insights and importantly, help our clients and coachees gain greater insight into their own experience. Incisive questions are creative, daring and challenge the beliefs and assumptions that we all make in life.

This session will help us:

  • Elevate our questioning beyond the transactional
  • Become more concise in our questioning
  • Have confidence in daring to be incisive
  • Enable clients to fully explore the relationship between our thinking and results
  • Achieve more transformational outcomes for our clients/coachees

The session will be interactive with room for discussion and sharing of ideas in group settings with colleagues.

Book now and dare to be incisive.

  • Facilitator: John Drysdale
  • Event Date/time: Monday 10th October, 1.00PM – 2.30PM
