  • Operate from an Inquiring Mindset – utilizing BOTH a highly developed Learner Mindset AND a Question Thinking orientation – because we can only ask the best questions from the right mindset
  • Put the Inquiring Mindset in action – applying practical tools and strategies to choose the Learner Mindset, collaborate successfully, and generate more intentional and useful questions to produce the best results – because all questions are not created equal

That’s what makes it so powerful – Great results really do begin with great questions!
