  • Consider these scenarios...
      • You ’re looking for some coffee in a gas station convenience store, but the carafe is empty, so you say to the person behind the counter, “Pardon me, there’s no coffee in the pot.”

  • What Ever Happened to Personal Accountability?
    • The Question Behind The Question is a tool that has been developed and refined over the years that helps individuals practice personal accountability by asking better questions.
  • Incorrect Questions…(IQ ’s)
    • Incorrect questions are the complete opposite of personal accountability. In each one, the implication is that someone or someone else is responsible for the problem or situation.
  • QBQ
    • One of the guiding principles of the QBQ is “The answers are in the questions, which speaks the same truth: If we ask a better question, we get a better answer?
  • How to Avoid those Incorrect Questions…(IQ ’s)
    • Begin questions with “ What ” or “ How ” ( not “ Why ” , “ When, ” or “ Who ” ).
    • Contain an “ I ” ( not “ they, ” “ them, ” , “ we, ” or “ you ” .
    • QBQs focus on action.
  • IQs vs. QBQs
    • Correct Questions…
      • How can I contribute?
      • How can I serve my students better today?
      • What can I do to solve the problem?
      • What can I do to develop myself?
