Co-Creating Change Through Creative Questions

  • U of M Carlson School of Management, Private Dining Room (lower level) (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Stephanie McGovern, founder of High Performance Systems, will lead us in exploring how we sub-consciously sabotage our client’s ability to change.  Learn how to change the way you approach change.  As consultants or coaches it is easy to fall into the “fix-it” role when working with clients and we prevent the very change we want to help our clients create.  What if you could co-create innovative solutions with your clients just by the questions you ask?  And what if questions are the answer? In this session you will practice using creative questions to reduce client resistance to change while increasing your client's ownership and commitment. 

5:30 - 6:00 p.m. Registration and dinner

6:00 - 6:15 p.m. Welcome and Announcements

6:15 - 8:00 p.m. Co-Creating Change Through Creative Questions
