Asking Bigger Questions
Challengers have a full range of motion; they can see and articulate the big thinking and ask the big questions, but they can also connect that to specific steps needed to create movement.
With your shoulder partner share an experience you have had with a challenger.
There are three practices of a challenger
- Seed the opportunity
- Lay down a concrete challenge
- Generate belief in what is possible
Seed the Opportunity
- Show the need
- Challenge the assumptions
- Reframe problems
- Create a starting point
Lay Down a Concrete Challenge
- Extend a challenge
- Ask the hard questions
- Let others fill in the blanks
Generate Belief in What is Possible
- Belief that the possible is actually possible
- Lay out a path
- Co-create the plan
- Orchestrate an early win
As a group, create a non-linguistic representation of one of the three practices of a challenger. Be prepared to present to the group!
