Change Your Questions, Change Your Results:

The Question Thinking Advantage

A One-Day Workshop

By Marilee Adams, Ph.D.

Bestselling author of Change Your Questions, Change Your Life

What it is

The basic Change Your Questions, Change Your Results Workshop is a practical introduction to the Question Thinking (QT) Method of Tools and Practices—and how these lead to more success, satisfaction and even breakthrough results. You can literally change your relationships, experiences and results professionally and personally by changing the questions you ask yourself and others. Great results really do begin with great questions!

What you get

In this practical, enlightening and “hands-on” workshop you’ll learn QT methods and tools while applying them to a current relevant challenge or goal for new thinking and new possibilities. These simple, easy-to-apply tools and strategies help you close the gap between what you know needs to happen and how to make it happen. It empowers more successful critical and strategic thinking, decision-making, problem-solving, innovation as well as communication, collaboration and engagement—and bottom line business results. You will:

  • Experience how these methods strengthen resilience, mindfulness, creativity, and satisfaction as well as boost productivity, engagement, collaboration and desired results for yourself and others.
  • Learn how to apply QT methods to catalyze deeper effectiveness with current organizational initiatives including leadership, management, and team development and effectiveness as well as coaching, lean thinking, and operational excellence.
  • Discover how QT aligns with and empowers the results of Appreciative Inquiry, Action Learning, and Learning Organizations as well as Positivity and Emotional Intelligence.

How it works

Two success factors combine to make the Question Thinking method so transformational, practical and effective. QT is based on cutting edge, brain-based knowledge about the importance of questions and mindsets.

People often talk about changing behavior as the “Holy Grail of individual and organizational change.” We believe that positive, sustainable change depends on first changing thinking—and changing thinking requires knowing how to change the internal questions that drive thinking, behaving and results. This breakthrough thinking strategy activates a mental “master switch” for predictably producing more successful and satisfying results. To learn more about how this works, see Wharton@Work as well as a model illustrating QT Tools and Applications at: www.InquiryInstitute.com.

Change Your Questions, Change Your Results

ADVANCED

A Transformational Two-Day Workshop

Marilee Adams, Ph.D.

Bestselling author of Change Your Questions, Change Your Life

 

What it is

The advanced Change Your Questions, Change Your Results Workshop is a transformational professional and personal learning and skill-building experience—based on the Question Thinking (QT) Method of Tools and Practices. Building on the first day (the Basics workshop), the second day takes a deep dive into the questioning and mindset work and how to use for empowering positive change for individuals and organizations.

What you get

The CYQ advanced workshop focuses intensely on professional, personal, and organizational development and effectiveness. This deeper dive into the mindset work helps you personally cultivate a more resilient Learner Mindset while minimizing the impact of Judger (judgmental) mindset in yourself and others. These robust self-management skills for “Learner living” bring insight, resilience, freedom—and widely expanded possibilities, both personally and professionally. This strengthens confidence in your personal ability to be more effective and satisfied in achieving goals and successfully navigating inevitable challenges.

The second day of the workshop also explores the unintended costs and consequences of Judger Mindset with the goal of developing more robust Learner organizations, teams, and cultures. Organizations and teams gain significant bottom-line advantages when people consistently operate with a Learner Mindset, ask open-minded questions of themselves and others, and share practices for sustaining and reinforcing positive changes.

How it works

The two QT success factors of mindsets and questioning are based on enlightened knowledge of individual and organizational change as well as transformational and experiential learning principles. QT is aligned with groundbreaking and practical research on the neuroscience of happiness, mindfulness, learning and growth.

This 2-day workshop incudes 3 follow-up teleseminar sessions with guided practical self-study and learning. This workshop is also a prerequisite for the Inquiry Institute’s Chief Question Officer® Training Certificate Program.

FOR REGISTRATION AND INFORMATION

  • For whom: Leaders, educators, coaches, consultants, educators, learning and healthcare professionals, mediators, clergy, counselors, and engineers
