My top five coaching questions

listen more, talk less

Part five of my ‘Listen more, talk less’ guide to fabulous questions to use in a third sector one-to-one. Here are my top five favourite questions for helping your team member take responsibility for their own learning and move forward with confidence:

  1. I know you don’t know, but if you did, what would you do?
  2. If you secretly knew the answer what would it be?
  3. Who do you have to be to make this work?
  4. What is your first, next action?
  5. What have your learned about yourself this week?
