How to Get Answers to Powerful Coaching Questions

Powerful questions are excellent tools for any Agile practitioner, but they carry a big punch. "Why” might be the smallest among them, but it often has the biggest thrash and churn when it is asked. It goes deep to the heart of the matter, and it can get uncomfortable for the person receiving it. If you aren’t careful, a powerful question like "why" can shut down the conversation. In this session, David and Erin will get to the root of just how answering questions can be so difficult. They will help you modify questions like “why” to make them less threatening and easier to receive. By the time you leave, you’ll have a deeper appreciation for the art of interrogation, tools for modifying your own questions to make them more accessible, and hands-on practice to apply what you've learned and understand its impact.
