Course overview

Remember that board game where you guess which face is on your opponent’s card? To win, you need to ask good-quality questions that help you narrow down the potential people they could be. Asking them, “Do they have a nice singing voice?” isn’t going to help when you only have their face to go by.

In a one-to-one meeting, you need to get as much useful information from your staff as possible, so you know how they’re doing. Quality questions are the key to this. This course will help your managers ask effective questions during their next one-to-one with the employees.
