Course Description

Based on the in-person course, Questions Are the Answer: A Breakthrough Approach to Creative Problem Solving, Innovation, and Change, Inquiry-Driven Leadership focuses on a question-based approach to challenges, enabling you to become both a creative problem-finder and solver by gaining the tools to ask better questions. In exploring the conditions and behavioral habits that facilitate productive inquiry, you’ll learn to identify, frame, and solve problems in your own leadership context. You’ll discover how catalytic, or breakthrough questions, can foster transformative change, shift behaviors and beliefs, and generate individual and organizational value.

Program Benefits

Drawing on lessons from CEOs and innovators who have disrupted and transformed their industries by asking the right questions, you’ll learn to create the conditions that stimulate productive inquiry and drive innovation. As you recognize and navigate the barriers that constrain creative energy, you’ll understand how questions can drive profound change and begin to practice the habits that reinforce continuous questioning. Guided by MIT Sloan faculty, you’ll develop your problem-finding and solving strengths and gain the skills to cultivate a culture of inquiry within yourself, your teams, and your organization.
