Module 7: Questioning

In Module 7 (13:19), our facilitator Kevin discusses inclusive communication skills, focused around questioning, with the goal of 1) reviewing strategic questioning for social change and 2) deepening our understanding of the use of questioning through understanding Question Traps.  

As you watch the video, take notes and pause at the questions to write in your LeadBoston journal.
