Are you ready for a breakthrough in your life, career, or relationship?

The most successful people have a clear sense of direction and get there by asking themselves and others better questions. To change behavior that leads to positive, sustainable change depends on changing thinking first. And changing thinking requires knowing how to change the internal questions that drive thinking, behaving and results. Question Thinking is a breakthrough thinking strategy that is at the heart of the Q-Work™ Approach (QWA) that activates a mental “master switch” for predictably producing more successful and satisfying results.

What it is

Our one-day workshop is a practical and powerful introduction to the Q-Work™ Approach of Tools and Practices—which leads to more success, satisfaction and 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 enlightening, “hands-on,” and results-oriented workshop you’ll learn QWA methods and tools while applying them to a current relevant challenge or goal for new thinking, possibilities, and results. These simple, easy-to-apply tools and strategies help you close the gap between what needs to happen and how to make it happen.

  • Experience how these powerful QWA methods strengthen resilience, mindfulness, creativity, and satisfaction as well as boost productivity, engagement, collaboration, and desired results for yourself and others.

“We’ve used Q-Work™ Approach so successfully in our work with teams that it has led to a radical transformation in how people approach and resolve problems. It also made an immediate and sustained change in their behavior. In an organizational culture, the more that people can be taught these processes, the greater positive impact it can have on productivity and the bottom line.”

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 Q-Work™ Approach 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 these for empowering positive change for individuals, teams, 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.

This strengthens confidence in your personal ability to be more effective and satisfied in achieving goals and communicate optimally as well as 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 productive and generative 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 Q-Work Approach has two success factors of mindsets and questioning are based on enlightened knowledge of individual and organizational change as well as transformational and experiential learning principles. QWA is aligned with ground-breaking and practical research on the neuroscience of happiness, mindfulness, learning, and growth. This 2-day workshop incudes a follow-up webinar session with guided practical self-study and learning.
