WEBINAR: The Art of Inquiry & the Power of Questions

  • 11/14/2022
  • 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM
  • Virtual


Registration is closed

Questions are one of the most powerful tools that we have in our conflict resolution and problem-solving relationships. This session will focus on the art of inquiry — discussing best practices for how ADR professionals can use questions, not just for investigations, but also to guide problem-solving processes, to empower communications and expression, to explore and build understanding of different experiences and perspectives, and to facilitate dialogues and relationships.

The presenters will explore the skill of appreciative inquiry, as well as timing, silence, and when to ask questions. This practical skills-building session will teach you how to utilize questions intentionally and thoughtfully to effectively navigate common contexts, from facilitating dialogues and communications improvement to problem-solving and dispute resolution.

**Approved for 2.0 hours CME credits (0.0 ethics) by the Supreme Court of Virginia**

Please note that this webinar will NOT be recorded and made available to registrants post-webinar.
