“Don’t be afraid of the answers. Be afraid of not asking the questions.”
– Jennifer Hudson
It is hardly breaking news that we are living in an increasingly complex and uncertain world. We are seeing this everyday, witnessing changes in many systems. Many of us are exploring how to deal with this uncertainty and host change in the systems we are part of. This is no easy task, and there are no simple answers as to how.
We need good questions to guide us in our personal lives, families, organizations and nations. We need questions to seed the conversations that really matter, engaging others to address and explore new and better ways of doing what needs to be done.
“The First People had questions and they were free. The Second People had answers and they were enslaved”.
- Why do we need better questions in our world today?
- What needs questioning?
- How do we recognize a good question?
- How do we craft powerful and engaging questions?
- What can our questions lead to?
- What do our questions tell us about ourselves and our assumptions?
- How can we design questions that are responsive to and effective in different contexts?
- What does a good question open for a group?
How is this different?
This is different! We are creating a new way for you to engage with our courses. As part of our continuous efforts to make all the valuable material that we are gathering through our courses and our practice available, we have set out to offer a new kind of courses that are more FLEXIBLE and mostly self paced at the same time as you learn with a community of peer learners.
For our “Flex” course you will have the benefit of:
- Self paced learning: Through carefully curated bite size videos and audio presenting the core ideas. This allows you to access the teachings when it is convenient for you
- A practice guide for reference and inspiration, that you can print out and take with you.
- A community of peer learners and peer feedback. This allows us to get to know peers from all over the world and reflect on our own practice in the light of what others are doing.
- Simple exercises to help you integrate your learning in your context.
The course is a self paced course, where we make new resources available every week. The course has a variety of modalities to help get as much out of the course as possible:
Self paced learning material:
Audio and video material
An integrated online learning platform
Exercises helping to apply the material in your own context
Peer learning: feedback on exercises, questions and sharing of inspirational cases.
A practice guide:
A creatively illustrated extensive practice guide to support all material covered
Working online, we can take advantage of the international scope of our interconnected communities of practice
Community of Practice
By joining this course you will be invited to participate for free in our ongoing calls for the community of practice of harvesters, that exchange experience and offer inspiration and new insights for deepening the practice.
