IoD Scotland - Mastering the Art of Strategic Questioning

21 Nov 2019

Yet where do we learn our questioning skills?

This highly engaging session will focus on deconstructing and reconstructing the way you think about asking questions with the ultimate aims of building trust in people and of gaining deeper insights from them in the processThroughout the day, you will work in small groups on exercises and a case study that capture compelling scenarios faced by directors and trustees.

“I am delighted I came to experience this Masterclass.  Exceeded my high expectations”
