March Blogcard: How Asking a Different Question Yields a Different Result!

Greetings Inspired Leaders!

As we enter into the end of the 1st quarter for 2017, are you where you thought you’d be? March is very inspiring because it’s not only the third month of the year, but its other meaning of activity. In the spirit of forward movement, David Cooperrider’s quote below is so powerful. The questions we ask really do direct our thinking, our choices and our actions.

One of the reasons Intentional Dialogues are a part of my practice is because it creates a space for possibility through questions…through curiosity. Whether café conversations, dialogue circles, appreciative inquiry or open space…the questions begin with “what” or “how”. These two words prompt inquisitiveness and broad thinking. The word “why”, on the other hand, is rarely used because it requires us to look back…to ponder something that has already happened and to venture to guess its path to existence. So our question this month is:

What question should you be asking that will cause you to shift directions?
