Asking Compelling Questions in Gracious Space

This blog post from the Center For Ethical Leadership outlines the process for asking compelling questions that promote learning and leadership by defining what the question really means.  

"A Compelling Question is formed by discerning the inherent (and sometimes opposing) values within the issue, and then crafting a question that incorporates, bridges and builds on those values, with enough possibility to create direction and enough specificity to create traction." (Gracious Space, 2010)

This type of questioning can be very useful when creating evaluation questions.
