Most of the issues that keep us up at night or prevent organizations from being successful are not problems that can be solved. Rather they are paradoxes that need to be managed. Unfortunately, most of us never learned to distinguish the two…or the methods to address the paradoxes.
This program helps people learn the three questions to make the distinction and provides trainers opportunities to learn a new set of tools, language, and skills that can become part of their toolkit to help individuals and organizations address longstanding obstacles to success. People and organizations who deal with the critical paradoxes before them are more resilient and successful over time.

Interviewing users is undeniably one of the most valuable and commonly used user research tools. Yet sometimes we forget that it's a skill we need to learn, because: It's based on skills we think we have (talking or even listening)
It's not taught or reflected on.
People tend to 'wing it' rather than develop their skills. Without good interviewing skills, insights may be inaccurate or reveal nothing new, suggesting the wrong design or business responses, or they may miss the crucial nuance that points to innovative breakthrough opportunities.

- Importance of rapport-building and listening
- Review different types of questions
- Why you need to have a range of question types
- What type of participants to recruit and how to find them
