Webinar: Great Question – How to ask good questions

In this NeuroCapability webinar, Linda Ray discusses how to ask brain-friendly questions. She advises we build up a “question bank”, compiling questions that we know will hit the mark, based on research, so we can avoid resorting to some of the traditional questions that trigger a threat response. This webinar offers a practical how-to guide so you’ll want to get your pen and paper ready before hitting the play button. There were a few technical difficulties with this particular webinar’s delivery, but we’re sure you’ll appreciate the value it delivers.
