The Socratic Method is a staple in coaching conversations.  Coupled with a little social and emotional intelligence, the magic ingredient in relationships, conversations flow and become powerful vehicles for insight, critical thinking, and self-reflection.

Socratic Method as it applies to Project Management:

  • Applying the Socratic method forces the project manager and the project team to look more closely at their ideas, beliefs, and assumptions.
  • Socratic method allows the use of cooperative and argumentative dialogue to stimulate true critical thinking.
  • The Socratic method helps to reinforce organization’s values of transparency, collaboration and sharing.
