Questioning Strengths provide a way to understand and adapt your approach to questioning. A personal profile is combined with easily digestible theory to bring the strengths to life.

The questioning skills workshop has helped me to make the most of team meetings and group project work. The session enabled me to understand how individual staff members process information differently and I’ve been able to adapt the way I present a question to coach answers from all of the team, especially the ‘internalisers’ of the group.

What We Do

We introduce you to the powerful benefits of our nine questioning strengths and the theory behind the Questioning Strengths Method (QSM). We’ll ask you to complete a Questioning Strengths Assessment (QSA) before you join the workshop. We’ll also send you a personal questioning strengths profile in advance of our meeting.

At the heart of the QSM are the nine questioning strengths. These represent nine different approaches to questioning, based on our validated self-assessment tool: The QSA. Using this unique research-based approach, we train participants to understand the benefits of questioning strengths and introduce them to a powerful approach for creating questions.

Our work with you includes:

  • A personalised questioning strengths profile for every participant.
  • First hand experience through our Theatre exercises of questioning strengths in action.
  • Training in proven techniques for generating and developing great questions.
  • A set of questions bespoke to your organisation’s needs to take away and work through to completion.

Because the QSM is based on practical expertise and academic research, we can work with you to create any kind of question based output during the workshop.

Get in touch to discuss how we can help you leverage the power of better questioning.
