We all want our children to grow up feeling confident, being able to make their own decisions and having the ability to be resilient and independent thinkers. One of the most critical ways we can enable this to happen is to be more conscious of how we are communicating with them.
All too often we inadvertently have a more overprotective or dominant style of communicating that can have quite detrimental long-term impacts and so having the right skills to utilise with our children is critical for all parents and people involved in their care and education.
Our inspiring, fun and highly thought-provoking workshops teach you how to have truly Empowered Conversations with children, such that you will feel confident that you are contributing to giving them the best possible start in life and equipping them with essential skills that enable their success.
Imagine the difference you can make to children’s lives when you know how to have truly Empowered Conversations.
How can we be of assistance?

Lindsay presented an amazing session on “Better Questions” for our Children’s Services. While the team totally enjoyed Lindsay’s presentation, particularly her warmth and humour, it was her challenge to us to think about our questioning and listening that resonated the most. Since the session our questioning has been more thoughtful and our capacity to really hear someone else’s story (without jumping in with our own story!) has helped us in our relationships with our colleagues, the children and their families. We are on our potentialising journey…

I have had the pleasure of participating in the Asking Better Questions workshop on more than one occasion. The last workshop was held with our staff team who are faced with many challenges on a daily basis. The workshop has provided us all with strategies and the confidence to ask better open ended questions – it was an empowering and fun professional development session.

This course has positively impacted my home life more than I could even put into words.
I have two children on the spectrum, 14 yr old boy and 9 yr old girl. By asking better questions and applying the What?, How? And Tell me I have managed to get my son re-engaged in secondary school and reduced my daughters meltdowns. I have been struggling to get my son to attend school since the COVID 19 homeschooling period ceased which sent his routine into turmoil. I was “telling him” rather than empowering him for months when all I needed to do was ask him better questions. I spent a morning asking him better questions and drawing information out of him by responding to his all too familiar “I don’t know” the way you taught me and this has been my saving grace. My son has opened up to me more than he ever has and shared with me the reasons why he doesn’t want to go to school. I used this information to have a better conversation with him. He then devised his own return to school plan, told ME what days would work for him and he has continued to commit to his 3 days per week for the past 2 weeks. WINNING ???? Previous to this he was just refusing to go. THANK you from the bottom of my heart this has been an emotional rollercoaster and the simple techniques I am very grateful for. I have recommended this course to all at work and feel this is a course that has the capacity to assist all parents especially those who have children on the spectrum.
I attended Lindsay Tighe’ ‘Better Questions’ workshop with my team as part of my professional development as an Educational Leader in a Local Government child care centre. I found the workshop to be inspiring and motivating not only for myself but also my colleagues. I highly recommend the ‘Better Teams ask Better Questions’ workshop for anyone who wishes to release potential and get the best out of the children, families and colleagues that they work with.
