Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In this session, we will explore the super power of every 5-year-old, how to ask “why?” We will discuss the benefits of asking “why?”, the psychology of asking “why?”, and some practical and productive ways to ask “why?” As a bonus, we will have some hands-on experience with asking “why?" in a way that allows you to have an intelligent conversation with anyone!

What 3 things might your participants learn or experience as a result of your workshop?
  • How to cultivate a more meaningful connection with the people you interact with every day.
  • How to have a respectful conversation with difficult people or those whose values differ from your own.
  • How to facilitate more effective problem definition in one-on-one or small groups.

So What:
What might be 3 ways that the content of your workshop changes your attendees' perceptions, habits, ways of working, or view of the world?
  • Truly understand another's world view (rather than argue against it).
  • Engender mutual respect among diverse members of a group.
  • Facilitate more productive (informal) problems solving.

Now What:
What are 3 ways your attendees might apply what they learn in your workshop?
  • More effective one-one-one conversations with direct reports, managers, and co-workers.
  • More effective informal problem solving sessions with teams.
  • More respectful conversations with others who disagree with your world view.
