In Place of Strife

The Mediation Chambers

A Good Question

Many years ago I attended a workshop on “Inquiry as Intervention”. One of the teachings from that workshop which has stuck with me is that “A good question is a gift to the recipient.” Asking difficult or challenging questions with that intention often defuses the potential sting. Recently in the context of meditation (extra t!) I was offered a new question: “What is it that you are not seeing?” A good question, maybe, for clients and lawyers, both about their own case and the other’s case. Certainly an excellent question for mediators!
