Details about her workshop
One big reason why learners might be reluctant to speak at length is that the questions we ask are often either too black-or-white or bear little sense whatsoever. The ability to ask real questions that contribute to our students’ wellbeing is a skill we can develop. Once we choose to ask questions that help students open up in a way that they can learn more about themselves, we suddenly end up with clients who are inspired and talkative.
