When you think of the word "coach", what image comes to mind? Someone standing on the sideline barking orders at everyone? The master strategist standing in an empty room with a whiteboard full of plans? How about this one: the great listener? On today's show, Michael Bungay Stanier returns to share additional insights from his international smash hit book The Coaching Habit. We talk about misunderstandings people often have about coaching, and how we can coach our peers and even our managers to help them unleash their best work every day.
If you collaborate with others, you need to understand how to interact with, lead, and get the best work out of them. Today's guest, Michael Bungay Stanier, has just released a book about how to develop a "coaching habit", and he will help us understand why coaching is important and how to do it well.
