In our many conversations with leaders, we hear that they frequently get pulled into the operational vacuum. This tactical preoccupation precipitates a reactive mindset. Those leaders who foster a high degree of trust among their reports ultimately create the time and space for strategic thinking, and it is this that leads them to outperform their peers.

During this lunchtime session, Michael Bungay Stanier will share how mastering five essential questions can help managers and leaders increase the focus, courage, and resilience they need to have more impact in the work they do.

In this practical, interactive, and engaging keynote, participants:
See the three vicious circles that keep them busy, overwhelmed, and exhausted.
Own up to the five reasons they might not be coaching, and then remove that resistance.
Get three fast-to-master techniques to ask a question well (it’s harder to do than it sounds!)
And of course, learn and practice the five core questions they need–including the best coaching question in the world—so they can focus on the work that matters.
