Jeff Wetzler on The Ask Approach: Find Out What You Most Need to Know from Those Least Likely to Tell You

July 3, 2024 - 12:00pm to 12:30pm

Have you ever worked with a leader who keeps getting stuck in the same self-defeating patterns of failing to hear and learn from those around them? Do you see them struggling to motivate others to take action, frustrated and confused why their efforts aren't working? Or, do you wish you had better tools for identifying a client’s biggest needs and surfacing their true thoughts and feelings? Turns out, there is an approach that can help address all of these challenges: asking high quality questions in ways that draw out true candor from other people.

Join Carol Kauffman as she interviews globally-recognized adult learning and leadership expert Jeff Wetzler, author of ASK: Tap Into the Hidden Wisdom of People Around You. In this event, Jeff will outline his concrete, 5-step Ask Approach for uncovering the unspoken thoughts and feelings of others. This approach can 10x leaders' ability to learn and grow faster, make smarter decisions, and build more authentic relationships -- while also offering coaches invaluable tools for leveling up their practice. Ask has been named a #1 Amazon new release, a Next Big Idea Club “Must Read” book, and is widely endorsed by thought leaders from Adam Grant to Kim Scott to Bill George to Amy Edmondson, who authored the book’s Foreword.
