General Session

Using Catalytic Questions to Unlock Solutions in Your Organization

Ken Byler, Higher Ground Consulting


The dozens of curious questions we asked as children tend to morph into a world where answers trump everything else.  When we lose the ability to question ourselves, or fail to ask the right questions about the issues we face in organizations and the community, we inhibit growth and the opportunity to create innovative solutions.  Growing any organization and building community involves rediscovering the power of questions.


This interactive seminar will explore how catalytic questions can trigger personal growth, challenge assumptions, and inspire possibilities. Examples from coaching, business, and nonprofit settings will be shared. Participants will experience a catalytic questioning process and reflect on what they learn.
