The conversation for aims In relation to your situation... What do you want from this discussion? What are you trying to achieve long term? How much personal influence do you have over that? What first steps could you take? Are they challenging but achievable? How will you know if youve succeeded? What timeframe is involved?
The conversation for reality In relation to your situation... Whats happening now? How much/How often is that happening? How does this make you feel? Who else is involved? What happens to them? What have you tried so far? What results did you get?
The conversation for reflection In relation to your situation... How big is the gap between Aims and Reality? How realistic are your aims? How certain are you about the reality of the situation? How could you find out more? What assumptions are you making? Have you been totally honest with yourself? Whats really going on?
the nine dots How can you connect all nine dots, by drawing four straight continuous lines? (without lifting your pencil or retracing a line)
The conversation for options In relation to your situation... What could you do about all this? What else could you try? What if you had more………….? Whose advice could you seek? What suggestions would they have? What would you do if you knew you couldnt fail? Would you like another suggestion?
The conversation for way forward In relation to your situation... So, what exactly are you going to do? When are you going to do it? Who needs to know? How and when will you tell them? What resources do you need? How will you get them? Will this take you towards your aims? What do you need me to do? What is your commitment to this course of action on a scale of 1-10?
