When I'm training leaders in coaching skills, many ask how they can get better at thinking up great coaching questions. This article articulates the idea of "forward-facing curiousity". This is a powerful concept. As a leader, if you can be curious when coaching people - in a forward-facing way - you will create clarity that's followed by energy. Minimize time spent asking about the past. Rather focus more on where people want to go and get curious about how they might move forward. This curiousity leads you effortlessly to some effective coaching questions. And what you focus on (forward movement) you strengthen.
