I recommend the Powerful Questions program to Directors who may feel intimidated by asking questions – very powerful useful technique.
Overall, the webinar opened my eyes to a new way of communicating. I am now amazed at how often it is overlooked. It feels so fundamental. I particularly resonated with the sensory questioning. That felt like a really incisive and accurate way to expand understanding. I have always thought that language is such a finite, limited tool to express something as unlimited as feelings or perceptions, so using questions that tap at those roots really makes sense. Although I have intuitively used questions to soften my interrogative style at times or negate being confrontational or direct, I didn't see until now how vital it can be in cutting through to the core of problems. Powerful Questions are also questions we need to ask ourselves for greater clarity and insights into the voice of our own subconscious. This was a big take away for me.
An excellent program. I apply the techniques constantly, in Board meetings, while negotiating and dealing with clients. It is a very useful process. Asking the Powerful Questions is the best value that a Director can bring to a Board, ensuring that everyone is accountable and that the Directors are properly informed. The questions are ideal for identifying potential trouble spots. Everyone in the Financial Services industry ought to attend the Powerful Questions Workshop, no matter how senior they are.
