This 2-hour presentation (8-10am) by Dr. Marilee Adams is based on her bestselling book Change Your Questions, Change Your Life: 12 Powerful Tools for Leadership, Coaching, and Life, which is required or recommended by many coach training schools. It is a fast-read business fable about an executive coach. Marilee will provide practical new thinking, skill building, and tools around questioning and mindset management that empower results. This approach is foundational for every coaching focus or application (life coaching, business coaching, executive coaching, relationship coaching). It aligns with, and supports, emotional intelligence, positivity, resilience, neuroplasticity, and appreciative inquiry. Q-Solutions is an approach to asking new questions that catalyze conversations that can predictably lead to new, often breakthrough, results. The presentation is enlightening, dynamic and interactive, with distinctive content, models, stories, and exercises.

In this program, you will learn how to:

  • Empower success with ICF Competency #6: Powerful Questioning
  • Utilize the distinction between asking questions and using questions most effectively
  • Understand that attitudinal and behavioral change begins with changing mindset and questions, both for the coach and the coachee
  • Learn why the Learner mindset is the coaching mindset and how to reinforce the Learner mindset, both for coaches and coaches
  • Gain use of a practical tool, the Choice Map, to empower learning, growth, and results through coaching
