How many times have you started a conversation with someone on one topic and quickly veered off course, making little if any progress on the main issue? How many times have you had a conversation that went so broad rather than deep you felt as if you skimmed the surface of several issues?
Imagine you're drilling a well to get water. You're more likely to encounter water by drilling one 1,000-foot well rather than a thousand 100-foot wells. When you approach a conversation using the Mineral Rights model, you are similarly drilling deep, going layer by layer staying with one topic, asking questions that move the conversation deeper to what's at the core.
When you and your students engage your collective curiosity by asking questions, your conversations become far richer. Students may be surprised at the insights they come to on their own and at the answers that lie within themselves. From a Fierce perspective, we believe the answers are all in the room. Using the Mineral Rights model, you become a catalyst in helping your students think out loud in a far richer, more effective way.
