What you will learn:
The fastest way to transform your organization is to improve the questions you ask and the value you place on asking them. Our workshop, built on 17+ years of developing strategy for leading startup and enterprise companies, will help leaders:
- Save time & money by solving the right problems
- Improve retention by creating a culture of inquiry and belonging
- Make customers happier by understanding their wishes and needs
- Support innovation by surfacing fresh insights
- Build confidence in teams and leaders to question assumptions
We accomplish these goals by understanding what truly makes a question effective, and what stands in the way of attendees asking more of them.
