In this evening workshop we will dive deeply into our own life and work challenges and pathways into the future. We will shape and sharpen questions that could support you into a more thriving future – and start the quest for answers.
How we will work:
This will be a highly participatory and hands on workshop. Please come prepared with the area you want to focus on - a work challenge, career, life issue - what is most important to you right now? This will be your focus for a powerful question. We will be working with the Flow Game, a powerful tool using questions to help new conversations arise.
What we will cover:
How questions work - your tool for finding the knowledge and power in the groups you work in
What makes up powerful questions and how to craft them
Working with peers to shape and sharpen questions that can immediately be applied in work and life
Who should attend:
Those who want a powerful tool to create clarity and innovation in their work
Those who want to influence with integrity
Team members or leaders who want to help shape the group's success
Leaders in work or life at any level
Process hosts or meeting leaders who want to sharpen their skills
We live in a world fixated on answers. This means we are very good at questioning answers, but not good at looking more closely at the questions that created them in the first place. This blindspot means that we many times answer the wrong question and we even create best practice around the wrong question. Our answer focused, "get the project done now!" mindset means we often miss the questions that could take us into new innovations and different futures.
To work well in complexity, we neet to make the move from the project mindest to the process mindset. When process is running smoothly, projects go more smoothly as well. It pays to learn the art and craft of how to sharpen your question before you begin.
This workshop is designed to figure out powerful questions, explanes how questions work and what makes a question powerful.
