Motivational Interviewing: Helping Others Change through Questions

Motivational Interviewing: Helping Others Change through Questions

We can't change others, but we can motivate them to change by using motivational interviewing:

  1. Ask open-ended questions
  2. Engage in reflective listening
  3. Affirm the person’s desire and ability to change

The goal is not to persuade but to look for...

  • sustain talk, and
  • change talk.

When you identify change talk, you may ask questions that help people go deeper to motivate them to change.

To be a good motivational interviewer, you must cultivate a genuine desire to help people reach their goals.

Rethinking and corporate culture of learning

An organization with a culture of learning requires:

  1. psychological safety and
  2. accountability to both the process and outcome.

So, these are what they do:

  • They avoid best practices and keep rethinking their solutions.
  • They are not afraid of making mistakes and learn from them.
  • Team members ask themselves and others, “How do you know?” in a nonjudgmental way.
