Questions that Invite Meaningful Participation (session 3)
June 14 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Learn how to use open questions to invite people’s ideas and feedback in meaningful ways.
In a time of polarization and alienation, creating ways that people can participate and contribute to decisions affecting their lives and work is critical. This is a way to evolve beyond oppressive cultures – by creating participatory, inclusive approaches. This workshop will offer skills in how to host conversations and interactions where people feel heard, where their ideas and wisdom can come together, and wiser solutions can emerge.
You’ll learn a process for coming up with timely, relevant questions to engage people as well as various methods for hosting conversations and “harvesting” what you heard. You’ll see how strategic questions can be used to design interactive meetings and respond to what you learn.
Following the workshop, you’ll get a ‘resource-rich’ email of methods, articles, and other links to support you in applying these ideas.

Strategic questioning is a life skill worth mastering. It has the power to truly transform dialogue. Although I took the course for professional development, it’s been immensely valuable on the personal front as well. It doesn’t come naturally to most people, and Beth is an exceptional teacher. I highly recommend this workshop! – Sarah, previous participant
