Overview
Coaching is an essential skill for leaders. But for most busy, overworked managers, coaching employees is done badly, or not at all. They're just too busy, and it's too hard to change.

But what if managers could coach their people in 10 minutes or less?

In Michael Bungay Stanier's The Coaching Habit, coaching becomes a regular, informal part of your day so managers and their teams can work less hard and have more impact.

Coaching is an art and it's far easier said than done. It takes courage to ask a question rather than offer up advice, provide an answer, or unleash a solution. Giving another person the opportunity to find their own way, make their own mistakes, and create their own wisdom is both brave and vulnerable. It can also mean unlearning our -fix it- habits. In this practical and inspiring book, Michael shares seven transformative questions that can make a difference in how we lead and support. And, he guides us through the tricky part - how to take this new information and turn it into habits and a daily practice.

--Brene Brown, author of Rising Strong and Daring Greatly

Drawing on years of experience training more than 10,000 busy managers from around the globe in practical, everyday coaching skills, Bungay Stanier reveals how to unlock your peoples' potential. He unpacks seven essential coaching questions to demonstrate how--by saying less and asking more--you can develop coaching methods that produce great results.
- Get straight to the point in any conversation with The Kickstart Question
- Stay on track during any interaction with The AWE Question
- Save hours of time for yourself with The Lazy Question, and hours of time for others with The Strategic Question
- Get to the heart of any interpersonal or external challenge with The Focus Question and The Foundation Question
- Finally, ensure others find your coaching as beneficial as you do with The Learning Question

A fresh, innovative take on the traditional how-to manual, the book combines insider information with research based in neuroscience and behavioural economics, together with interactive training tools to turn practical advice into practiced habits. Dynamic question-and-answer sections help identify old habits and kick-start new behaviour, making sure you get the most out of all seven chapters. Witty and conversational, The Coaching Habit takes your work--and your workplace--from good to great.

Coaching is an essential leadership skill in business and learning how to do it well is a matter of habit, says Do More Great Work author Stanier in this slim guide. This pocket-size book, full of eye-catching graphics and pithy phrases in large text, guides readers through seven questions that Stanier asserts will lead them to great coaching. His suggestions for would-be coaches are focused on helping them understand the needs of the coachee and addressing these needs clearly and directly. Since many or most leaders have tried to coach and failed, according to a study Stanier cites, these questions are aimed at making coaching simpler and more effective, and building it into a habit. The advice is backed up with references to other studies and includes worksheets. The book is intended to be customized for branded corporate use; its hard to imagine who the trade audience would be for the generic advice provided, unless its amended with organization-specific information.
