Moment Of Truth

Learning to ask better questions—ones that are curious, positive, and open-minded—you can discover fresh solutions and insights you might’ve missed before.

Consider these questions:

  • Are you willing to take responsibility for your mistakes—and for the attitudes and actions that led to them?
  • Are you willing to forgive yourself, and even laugh at yourself?
  • Will you look for value in your experiences, especially the most difficult ones?
  • Are you willing to learn from what happened and make changes accordingly?

Embracing these questions can lead to valuable growth and resilience in the face of challenges.

The Question Thinking Technique - Questions Drive Results

The Question Thinking Technique - Questions Drive Results

  • Understanding that the questions you ask yourself and others shape how you see the world.
  • When you ask good questions, you become better at solving problems.

Scenario: Leading a team project when unexpected problems arise can be tough.

Negative Approach: Whose fault is this mess? or Why did everything go wrong now?

Instead, apply QT by asking constructive questions: What factors contributed to the delay, and how can we address them? or What resources and support do we need to overcome these challenges and get back on track?

  • Focusing on solutions empowers you to overcome challenges and succeed.

Switching Questions = Switching Lanes

Switching Questions = Switching Lanes

People fall back into the Judger Path because it's a familiar pattern of thinking. You can easily get caught up in blaming others or feeling sorry for yourself when things don't go as planned. This is where the Switching Question technique comes in.

See it like a pathway to awareness and choice where you realize that you have control over your thoughts and actions, and paying attention to them, you can move from being critical and closed-minded (Judger) to being curious and open to learning (Learner).

It's all about turning your thinking around to help you grow and solve problems.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
