Good Question!

good question framedAs a Coach, part of my job in the Coaching Partnership is to ask meaningful open-ended questions. My favorite first response to one of these questions, when it occurs, is “Good question!”

Why?

“Good question!” often means the wheels are turning inside, and this is where much of the value takes place during a typical coaching conversation. Questions that provoke this immediate response are often what cause us to reach inside to discover hidden motives and desires, connect previously disconnected thoughts, and find new awareness’s that may lead to new thinking. New thinking, combined with new actions are the engine that moves us forward.

Are there some areas in your life that you would like to move forward on?

If the answer is “yes”, then find someone who will ask you good thought-provoking questions.
