Progress focused conversations are concrete, pragmatic, positive and  use easy wordings.

Nine progress focused questions are:

  1. What have you already achieved?
  2. How did you manage to achieve that?
  3. What do you want to achieve?
  4. What will be better once you have achieved that?
  5. Which difficulties do you already handle a bit better sometimes?
  6. How do you already pull that off?
  7. What will you do again, which led to improvements before?
  8. What will you experiment with, to explore whether it leads to further improvements?
  9. How will you notice you’re on the right track?
