Claire writes: “Questions. When we develop people to ask great questions, they often write down all the ones we are asking. Yet the greatest questions are not the ones in the book, nor the one you have heard us ask – they are the unimpressive, ungrammatical, incomplete words or phrases or gestures that responds to what you see or hear or sense.
As we facilitate someone else’s thinking, they won’t remember most of the questions that move them on – too much thinking to be done! Occasionally they will remember a deep one to take away because it needs more attention. So the shorter our questions, the quicker they are dropped and forgotten if they’re not useful.”
