Courses: Asking Better Questions

Course Details:
Basing negotiation or mediation on interests is greatly assisted by the conscious use of questions. This course is practice-oriented, focusing on the issues you raise in class. Questions can be facilitative, directive, accusatory, helpful, or condemnatory. They evoke ideas, illuminate culture, encourage images, and invite articulation. How do we make the question a tool of art in the hands of a principled asker? How can we use questions to ensure an honest, curious, and through inquiry? Come prepared to ask and learn.
