Today’s economy rewards organizations, leaders, and individuals who know how to quickly access and communicate their best thinking. Yet many of us believe that we can’t dramatically advance our analytic capability or learn to think more powerfully in collaboration with others. If you are buying into this myth, you aren’t tapping anywhere close to your or your organization’s full potential. Cutting-edge knowledge work asks for innovation amidst growing complexity, performance pressure, and distraction. In this demanding context, savvy questions and clear, concise answers are our most effective tools for improving focus, engagement, and execution. This seminar will introduce you to the Precision Q+A™ framework. Tested over two decades in some of the world’s most respected businesses and universities, the Precision Q+A™ framework teaches you how to bring the best of your analytic and social-emotional intelligence to the business problems your organization is tackling.

  • Precision Q+A™, the most comprehensive analytic questioning framework available.
  • The seven categories of analytical questions.
  • The four techniques for answering questions clearly and concisely.
  • How Precision Q+A™ can help teams build their credibility and expand their knowledge sharing.
