Karen Dietz's curator insight, March 28, 10:57 AM
One of the topics I always cover in my storytelling workshops is "The Art Of The Question". Why? Because when you are evoking stories from others, knowing the right questions to ask is critical. If you ask the wrong kind of question you won't get a story.Likewise, as you listen to the story, other questions will come to mind. What are those kinds of questions and how do you leverage different questions to go deeper into the story?Well, here's a handy chart and explanation to get you started. I really like the axis, and the discussion of what the different kinds of questions will get you.May all your listening bring you clarification and wisdom!
