You learn to lead a Socratic dialogue in a group and with one person. After the training, you can start a Socratic dialogue in any professional or personal situation.

You can :

  • Set up and lead a Socratic dialogue
  • be flexible and creative with the Socratic method.
  • distinguish between philosophical and non-philosophical discussion
  • articulate the philosophical background of the Socratic dialogue.

During this training, participants accompany different variants of the Socratic dialogue and free philosophical dialogues. In many practical exercises they document their experiences and develop their own facilitation style

de kunst van het vragen stellen

The training was an enlightment for me. We often jump very quickly to conclusions or answers and spend too little time asking questions. Questions that go to the essence and that enable us to arrive at correct answers. This has to do with active listening. In the world of fast conclusions, volatile claims it is important that such organizations exist that keep the ideas of Socrates alive to apply this in politics, business and society. It is more than “useful” . It is essential.The philosophical background of Kristof Van Rossem herein is an important added value.
