Constructive Questioning Skills for Scrutiny/Boards

Wednesday 25th May:  10.30 – 12.30pm

An interactive training session with leading UK Scrutiny expert Dr Dave Mckenna

This interactive session is for tenants/board members involved with board meetings and/or scrutiny and will look at ways to be more constructive and productive in meetings. Practical tips will be shared to help you think about what you are already doing well and what new things you might try.

Dave draws on the wisdom of conversation experts such as coaches, facilitators and mediators in order to provide tips, techniques and frameworks that can be easily used and shared.  

The session will be a mix of short presentations and work in small groups so you can learn from other participants and have a chance to try things out.

Key topics will include:
  • Constructive challenge and constructive support
  • A simple formula for making a contribution
  • What question to use and when
  • Tips for building productive conversations in meetings
