Seeing the Forest AND The Trees
A Conversation to Strengthen Our Capacity to Zoom In and Out
Between the Macro and the Granular
With Tom Drucker
Asking questions can make the difference between a small engagement and a larger engagement. Asking questions can also surface the unexpected before it adversely affects an engagement.
Accepting situations at "face value” is always tricky. Tom will discuss how we can find out what is really driving a situation. Knowing this will better equip us to respond to our clients and avoid potentially disruptive influences later.Accepting situations at "face value” is always tricky. Tom will discuss how we can find out what is really driving a situation. Knowing this will better equip us to respond to our clients and avoid potentially disruptive influences later.
Tom will describe a recent situation where asking questions up front changed a small consulting assignment from a couple of hours into a couple of days. Jerry Savin will describe an engagement where asking more questions in the beginning would have provided a better understanding of the client and reduced some subsequent free consulting.
This will be a conversation, so we are asking attendees to bring a situation where they were either surprised by a turn of events or where their questions made a difference in the size or structure of an assignment.
