Where questions bring clarity!

Clarity contributes to better decisions, setting achievable goals, to our sense of confidence and wellbeing. Clarity is essential for moving ahead.

Feelings

Events or situations are triggering emotional responses, associated with the release of hormones and neurotransmitters, followed by sensations in our body.

Thoughts

Certain thoughts are always grasping our attention and may hinder our capacity to communicate with clarity and to learn through our experiences.

Language

Using particular words may have a limiting effect on our ability to see and express things the way they truly are.

Actions

Based on poor understanding and lack of adjustment to the context, our actions may fail to bring expected results and cause disappointment.

Unlocking the full potential.

Often the biggest obstacle to success and achieving our potential is internal, not external. Coaching is about helping individuals to learn rather than about teaching them. The key to successful coaching is asking the right questions to help an individual work through their issues and develop new skills.

The coaching process aims to identify the stage at which an individual is and to use the appropriate language to help them move towards the next stage.

What is our method?

Good questions help to shed light on how our feelings, thoughts, language and actions interplay. To realize this opportunity, we are building technology that relies on the inquiry-based learning approach. We use a method that we call “5R” (Recognize, Reflect, Resource, Reframe, Review). In conversation with an individual, the machine brings questioning techniques through the stages of the creative problem-solving framework.

Humans are full of great questions.

In the words of Anatole France, "The greatest virtue of man is perhaps, curiosity." Our curiosities drive us to engage in an inquiry process that helps us search and build knowledge and bring meaning to our world.

Through curiosity, we have a great opportunity as HR and education leaders, facilitators, trainers and coaches help their audiences develop the needed skills, strategies, and know-how to become competent, critical thinkers and learners.
