How do you feel when you are asked and not told? The ability to ask open-ended questions (instead of closed) helps to expand the brain to explore possibilities. Powerful questions and powerful pauses help to create vision and action.
Organizations that have created Coaching Cultures, ask more questions instead of sharing advice. Erickson's Coaching Competencies for Leaders course is a safe environment where leaders from all over the world come together to learn and share their specific leadership challenges while practicing and implementing coaching techniques to increase their coaching competence and skills.
