change begins the moment we ask a question
Change begins the moment we ask a question!

The words we use, and

the words we pay attention to

create our experience of the world!

slide8

Everyday we get up

we make a choice

on what we will focus on…

will it be on what is broken?

or

will it be on what is possible & our strengths!

slide9

Intentional Construction

Words create

the framework

for our lives!

We choose how we look at things and how we talk about them

the art of asking questions
DEFICIT APPROACH

AFFIRMATIVE APPROACH

  • What’s the biggest problem here?
  • What do you have to do to correct what’s not working?
  • Why do you miss the mark so often?
  • What possibilities exist that we have not thought about yet?
  • What’s the smallest change that could make the biggest impact?
  • What solutions would have us all win?
The Art of Asking Questions!
slide11

Simultaneous Factor

Inquiry and change

are simultaneous!

Asking questions influences change!

slide12

Simultaneous Factor

Questions direct our attention… which directs our experience!

  • What are the morale issues on your LWV board?

or

  • What excites you about working on this board?
slide13

Opens More Possibilities

Every moment is full of an infinite array of possibilities!

  • We can only see what we have grown an eye to see.
  • Look at strengths & for opportunities …

and new things will emerge.

slide14
If you want to build a ship don’t drum up the people to gather wood, divide the work and give orders…

Instead teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea!

Expect to be inspired!

Anticipating & Motivating

slide15

Positive Image Positive Action

“When we seek to bring out the best in others, we somehow bring out the best in ourselves”

William Arthur Ward

to be effective

The art of being an effective coach

is to engage otherswith the right positive questions at the right time !

To be Effective
on reflection
On reflection…

“Although we don’t usually think of them this way, most social realities – schools, hospitals, stock exchanges, political parties, churches – are actualizations of ideas that once existed only in the minds of a few women and men.

This is also true of abolition of slavery, the replacement of monarchies with republics and all other progress we have made…”

Riane Eisler

Same with the idea that women had the right to Vote!

Practicing Open Ended Questions

The local League coordinator indicates It’s been difficult to get the other board members to see the value in adopting the membership and leadership growth best practices while planning events/activities.
