Say less, but have greater positive impact. Navigate challenging situations and conversations with confidence. Know what to say even at those awkward networking events when you don’t know anyone.

Build your tool kit with this invitation to Explore practical and actionable ways to use coaching-based skills in both life and work.

Instructor: Kathleen A. Paris, Ph. D. Meet Kathleen Paris
Often the most valuable role an academic leader can play in problem-solving is to pose important questions. Knowing the questions to ask is more important than knowing the answers initially.
In this session, we will revisit some characteristics of complex systems (which all colleges and universities are) and then some helpful questions to ask at each step of the problem-solving process.
- Recognize five characteristics of a complex system and discuss how decisions are best made in a systems thinking context.
- Identify five types of questions facilitators can ask at appropriate points in the decision-making process.
- Select appropriate questions to ask as the leader at appropriate points in the decision-making process.
