Powerful questions are the tools to help people discover new roads and to find answers. Many people are not naturally reflective. We all have a limited perspective. Questions are powerful when they provoke reflection in other people, causing them to think more deeply and creatively than they could on their own.

A simple technique to asking powerful questions is to ask questions from different angles, or perspectives. Angles are the roads our thinking travels along. Creative thinking means getting off our well-worn thought roads, and thinking along different roads.

Angle questions will open up new ideas, perspectives, and options – and that’s powerful!
