Asking questions is a lost art.
Asking questions is a lost art. Perhaps this is due, in part, to our expansive knowledge base as experienced professionals. The more we know, or think we know, the less we ask. Regardless if that is applicable to you or not, asking questions for our own growth as opposed to the growth of others is quite a different story.
No doubt, we have been approached by an emerging interpreter seeking answers, advice, or even mentorship. When they pose questions or problems, how do we respond? The standard interpreter reply “it depends” may be our default. However, asking the right questions can prompt valuable intrapersonal dialogue. They will critically reason to unpack an issue, gain meaningful perspective, and grow. This begs the question “Have you asked questions about questions?” How do you ask them? What do you ask? How do you know to ask the right one? This interactive workshop will allow us in both large and small groups to dig deeper into the art of this critical problem-solving skill.
As a result of attending this workshop, participants will be able to:
1) Name 4 types of questions for problem-solving.
2) Identify which type of question is most fitting for a given scenario.
3) Develop questions that prompt others to think critically.
