A big thank you to everyone who has given me feedback on "What makes a powerful question?" Your comments have been tremendously helpful in provoking my thoughts on the subject.

You can see the comments/discussion on the Gurteen Knowledge Community group on Linkedin.

I am still looking for input from anyone who would like to add further to the discussion. But note, I realize now that I was not entirely clear in my question :-)

Rather than ask "What makes a powerful question?", I meant to ask "In triggering a conversation to explore an issue - what makes a powerful question?"

How would one design or wordsmith such a question? What are its attributes?

If you are interested in Knowledge Management, the Knowledge Café or the role of conversation in organizational life then you my be interested in this online book I am writing on Conversational Leadership
