Idea of the Month: With a new conversation, we may change the outcomes
With a new conversation, we may change the relationship; if we change the relationship, we may change the behaviours; if we change the behaviours, we may change the outcomes.Professor Bob Garvey
I recently came across this quote at a conference in York hosted by the Local Area Coordination network. It reminds us to really look closely at the conversations we are having and the questions we are asking people; to ensure that the conversations have a lasting impact on the respondent; not just tick a box for us.
If you want to find out more about the art of asking questions, we love this guidance which introduces the notion of the powerful question, one which generates curiosity in the listener, energy and new possibilities.
