Are You (and Your Clients) Solving the Right Problems?

April 05, 2023
02:00pm to 03:00pm ET

A crucial aspect of successful coaching is to understand what problem the client is really facing - which is rarely the same problem that the client thinks it is. 

In this webinar, Harvard Business Press author Thomas Wedell-Wedellsborg will share the method from his latest book, "What's Your Problem", showing how you can quickly and effectively work with clients (and yourself) to understand if you are solving the right problems. A key concept is the distinction between analyzing a problem, and then fully reframing it, providing a completely new perspective.

The session includes five specific questioning strategies you can use to elicit new framings of a problem, giving you a powerful, systematic process for creating breakthroughs with both clients and your own challenges. 

Thomas's book "What's Your Problem" was recommended by Adam Grant, Amy Edmondson, and former Google CEO Eric Schmidt. It has been translated in 14 languages, and his reframing method has been used by companies like Microsoft, Citigroup, Cisco, AMEX, Time Warner, and The United Nations.
