Positieve vragen

Je denkt er wellicht nooit over na. Vragen zijn vragen, vragen staat vrij en er bestaan weliswaar geen domme vragen…. Maar er bestaan wel ‘positieve’ en ‘negatieve’ vragen. De eerste categorie is gericht op de toekomst, het vinden van oplossingen en vooruitgang, de tweede op het verleden, oorzaken en ‘toen’.

Zelf werk ik graag met de meer positieve vragen. Dat kan zowel in een-op-een gesprekken, noem het coaching, als in advieswerk en organisatieontwikkeling. Problemen worden daarbij uiteraard niet ontkend, maar als wat minder relevante beschouwd om beweging te krijgen.

Je stuurt je gedachten op deze manier in positieve richting, wat vrijwel ongemerkt zorgt voor een beweging richting de toekomst. En je gaat op een andere manier over problemen (en oplossingen) nadenken. Voor wie daar bekend mee is, het lijkt op appreciative inquiry (waarderend onderzoeken).

Mooie voorbeelden van positieve, oplossingsgerichte vragen zijn:

  • Waaraan wil iets veranderen? Wat is de reden dat ik daaraan iets wil veranderen?
  • Wat wil ik bereiken? Wat levert het me op als ik dat bereikt heb?
  • Wanneer was de situatie al een enigszins zoals ik zou willen dat deze wordt? Wat deed ik toen anders? Hoe kreeg ik dat toen voor elkaar?
  • Op welke ideeën brengt dit me voor een klein stapje in de goede richting?

En als je in de vragen ‘ik’ en ‘me’ vervangt door ‘wij’ en ‘ons’ zijn ze uitstekend bruikbaar bij het creëren van beweging in organisatievraagstukken!
