Change Your Questions, Change Your Life is used as the basis for Question Thinking training for leaders, managers, executives, coaches, consultants, and teams in organizations around the world. It is a quick-read business and relationship fable about executive coaching and inquiring leadership that illustrates the unique power of asking the best kinds of questions for the most desirable result that people want in their professional and personal lives.
You’ll learn what kinds of questions help (or hinder) your chances for success, satisfaction, and even breakthroughs. Now available in over 28 languages, Change Your Questions, Change Your Life outlines simple, practical and powerful questioning tools for new thinking, possibilities and results.
In response to educators who are already fans of her bestseller Change Your Questions, Change Your Life, Marilee Adams, the originator of Question Thinking™, presents a compelling model for creating a classroom environment infused with curiosity, creativity, and caring.
Through a moving story of a teacher on the verge of burnout, Adams demonstrates the powerful influence our mindsets have on how we interact with our students, our colleagues, and ourselves. Through vivid examples, she illustrates how cultivating what she calls a Learner Mindset leads to breakthroughs in critical thinking, communication, and collaboration. Complete with Adams’s Choice Map for identifying our own mindsets, a workbook, and access to online resources, this inspiring book will transform teachers and students alike into open-minded, creative, resilient problem solvers and lifelong learners.
The Art of the Question extends the range of cognitive-behavioral therapy by elaborating on the ways that internal questions program thought, emotion, and behavior. Describing a groundbreaking, question-centered approach to therapy, the concepts and practices in this book are essential for facilitating successful counseling and therapy. The Art of the Question contains everything therapists need to add question-centered methods to their therapeutic toolkits.
The question-driven nature of choice is one of the pillars of question-centered therapy. The Art of the Question offers practical psycho-educational tools to help clients create better choices, be more effective in the ways they make choices, and take responsibility for their decisions.
Clients learn to ask questions leading to solutions and positive possibilities, rather than those focusing on problems, negativity, and limitations. They discover that healing, growth, creativity, and change are often catalyzed through the simple act of changing their questions.
