The “Lineage” of Questions

I recorded this video of one of my very favorite people in the world, Helen Titchen-Beeth, when my colleague FireHawk Hulin and I were interviewing her for the World Cafe’s 20th Anniversary celebrations (clicking the link will download the 1.8M Harvest Report).

The exchange in this short excerpt particularly took my fancy, as Helen was having great fun describing the impact of powerful questions, digging back into the lineage to find the “mother of all questions”. Full disclosure compels me to say Helen had just had a bicycle accident and was laid up in bed recovering, which makes me wonder if perhaps pain killers had a hand in the hilarity?? No matter – for all that her comments are very funny, they are also very wise. (I love it when that happens!)
