By asking the powerful questions, the coach invites you to clarity, action, and discovery at a whole new level. “The real aim with powerful questions are that the answers will help the client to move forward”. These generally are open-ended questions that create greater possibility for expanded learning and fresh perspective.
Open question cannot be answered by simple yes or no answer, rather you are looking for information plus insight. Some interpretation, synthesis judgement or even an argument that can lead to some clarity , decision or action. Here are some leading open ended questions to develop critical thinking skill.
Solution based questions leads the path to reach an answer that enables a collaborative mindset and approach with a desire to give solution rather shutting down client/ team by dwelling on what caused the problem. Most importantly remember this session belongs to the client where you are trying to assist the client to find solutions.
empowering teams / clients and giving up control is not easy. When asking reflective questions we need to keep in mind that empowering teams / clients is not a matter of intent, but rather how we put that intent into action.
I would highly recommend you to read an example of how powerful questions are used in real life scenario in the Scrum Master Stances Blog by Anil Jaising
