Elevating the Ask: The Art of Transforming Perspective Through Inquiry



We’ve spent so much time becoming subject matter experts and developing expertise and sometimes we start limiting…ourselves. We limit solutions. We limit voices. We speak in declarative sentences, firmly planting a period on the end when a moment of curiosity bubbling into the space would include new voices, create the spirit of invitation, and add the spark to collaboration. Our desire to fix overruns the joy of solving.
When we talk about growth mindset, resilience, and growth, the successful are asking questions. Questions generate trust. A hearty “I don’t know, can you help me?” can generate trust. Trust at work, at home, in your community. Trust that softens failures and mistakes and allows another chance to try. Trust that prioritizes innovation and creativity over exhaustion and endurance. Trust that unlocks the unspoken ideas that could be the next great moment for your organization.
Let’s flex our curiosity muscles with different types of inquiry and create a toolbox of behaviors that condition us to expand into the inquiry-driven conversation, expand into the more, expand into change.
