Here are a list of questions that are good for facilitating group or one-to-one conversations.
It’s good to just choose a handful of questions and give people lots of time to explore each question – allow it to percolate and let the answer arise and unravel through conversation. It’s good to ask more questions that continue to dig deeper into people’s perceptions and emotions.
Deep listening is an art form. People can tell when you are really listening to them, it’s a huge gift to offer someone, and it’s wonderful when people feel safe enough to share some of their inner world with you.
If you are using these questions for yourself you can bear that in mind too – how can you make space to really listen to your own inner world? Journalling and asking others and listening deeply to their responses are both good ways of opening up new depths of yourself.
