The art of a great question! Be curious Ask, dont tell No assumptions Keep them short Open-ended Use their language, not yours Agenda free
Practicing the Art of Powerful Questions 1 person in your group will be the coachee/volunteer Everyone else in the group will take turns asking questions We have created some questions for you to use if needed This would not be a typical conversation yet gives you an idea of what it is like to ask these type of questions
I see you. I hear you. What you say matters to me Oprah Winfrey
Are you Listening......really listening???? You pause and do not reply to the person talking within 10 seconds You are not judging what they are saying Distractions like smart phones are no problem for you You are not thinking about what you could be doing instead of being in this conversation You ARE fully attentive to their message and present mentally and physically You ARE listening to understand
Great Listening takes practise...try this When a response starts to formulate in your head - acknowledge it and gently push it out of your mind Get comfortable with silence Maintain eye contact Put devices away and turn them off! WAIT – Why am I talking?
Practicing- Listening Two groups combine Lets play the Telephone Game We are going to start the story at the first person. Repeat the story to the person beside you – you have one chance to tell the story. Last people wait and share the story with the group.
Assumptions If others tell us something we make assumptions, and if they don't tell us something we make assumptions to fulfill our need to know and to replace the need to communicate. Even if we hear something and we don't understand we make assumptions about what it means and then believe the assumptions. We make all sorts of assumptions because we don't have the courage to ask questions. Miguel Ruiz, The Four AgreementsMiguel Ruiz
