Today, asking better questions is more valuable than just having the right answers. For the right answers, we already have Google Home, Amazon Alexa, and others and you can focus more on honing your inquisitive skills.
We live in knowledge based societies and need people to be more creative and independent thinkers. The ability to ask really good questions has become a key skill in today’s world. Without enough questions at our homes, workplaces, and other environments, we will not be innovating, understanding, and moving forward together.
Our schools, universities, and workplaces are already built to help us churn out answers. The world is not asking enough questions and it is important more than ever to pause, ask the most important questions, and evolve together.
Asking really good questions is a lifelong skill that you can learn and use everyday.
In Kobe’s book, Kobe Bryant The Mamba Mentality, he talks about how he asked a ton of questions. He elaborates that “I was curious. I wanted to improve, learn, and fill my head with the history of the game. No matter who I was with- a coach, hall of fame, teammate-and no matter the situation-game, practice, vacation-I would fire away question after question.”
In our Ask Better Questions Workshop, you will learn the art and science of asking good questions, ask questions that show curiosity and empathy, and develop better relationships with your audience.
The interactive and engaging workshop runs for over three weeks. You will spend time working on your questions, practicing them, and sharing your feedback with others.
