Asking Good Questions

Every day, in business, social, and family interactions, people are asking questions. Some of these initiate exciting change: "Will you marry me?"  Others are tense by nature, such as asking for a raise. There are also questions that provoke others just based on the way they are worded: "Why did you _____?" 

The key to asking good questions is to understand the structure of questions – from the length of one to what makes an effective question. This event will allow participants to see the cost of poor questions and the power of good ones, in addition to learning five best ways to open a question. 

Join us in this webinar to discover what types of questions engage others and lead to meaningful dialogues.

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

- Compare/contrast the various structures of types of questions

- Discuss characteristics of good questions and the cost of poorly-worded ones

- Name the five best ways to open up a question

Aligning a Learning Organization with Vision, Mission, Values, and Strategy


A Learning and Development (L&D) program's Vision, Mission, and Values Statement is its grounding message, forming the foundation upon which employee learning resides. By broadly defining what the L&D department does and by providing clear direction for the training path, this document clarifies the role of L&D. In turn, this should establish alignment between accreditation and the organization's Vision, Mission and Values Statement.

By the end of this webinar, learners will be able to:
- Describe the value of aligning the Vision, Mission and Values Statement to the learning department
- Explain the steps to writing the L&D department's Vision, Mission and Values Statement
- Assess your organization's Vision, Mission and Values Statement
