The Relevancy Frame (also known as a Relevancy Challenge) is specifically intended to help keep communication flowing in a desired direction. You can keep a person focused on a preferred topic by asking questions about how their comment, statement or question is relevant to the current goal of the meeting or interaction.
Some examples of the Relevancy Frame are:
- “How does that relate to the issues we’re looking at now?”
- “What relationship does that have to the topic at hand?”
