More than ever, a leader's role requires engaging members in purposeful conversation. To effectively engage a group, the questions a leader asks are often as important as the answers the group provides. Thoughtful questioning can generate dialogue that not only brings about meaningful answers, but also enhances the quality of community and invites ownership through the process. Five conversational themes that a leader needs to develop will be shared along with the related questions. This class is designed to be interactive to experience introduced methods.

While this class is designed for those in leadership, managerial or supervisory roles, or those leading communities and groups, it is open to anyone.
