The questions we ask determine the answers we get--obviously. Being aware of sort of answers your questions are likely to illicit (which we call intentions) increase your ability to choose questions that will help groups think clearly and solve problems.
In this episode, the first in a series of episodes about asking better questions, we go through 9 different intentions that we’ve found helpful when working with groups.
We've also created Question Intentions Worksheet in which we list and describe intentions and give several examples of them. Sign up to our newsletter on our website to download them.
