Mastering the Art and Science of Asking Questions
Start Date: 2/6/2016Start Time: 9:00 AM
End Date: 2/6/2016End Time: 3:30 PM

Event Description:

Think about how many questions you ask each day to do your job. Now think about where you learned your questioning skills. Most people draw a blank. The prevailing belief is that questioning skills should be modeled by managers and learned on the job rather than taught formally in a classroom. Yet these so-called "soft skills" or social cognitive skills are the foundation of a successful career.

According to McKinsey & Company, workplace interactions will become more complex "requiring a higher level of judgment, involving ambiguity, and drawing on tacit, or experiential, knowledge in exchanges with coworkers, customers, and suppliers." Questioning skills will therefore be of paramount importance in the years to come.

This highly engaging program introduces principles underpinned by the latest research in social psychology, cognitive neuroscience and journalism using video analysis of today's top TV interviewers in the U.S. and Europe and includes management-related exercises and a case study. Mastering the Art and Science of Questions will provide you with a new kind of competitive advantage regardless of your business specialization and industry.

Remember that there is a $25 no show fee for students who register and do not attend without notifying the SBS Graduate Programs Office.
