Witty and conversational, The Coaching Habit takes your work--and your workplace--from good to great. "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 and 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. In this practical and inspiring book, Michael shares seven transformative questions that can make a difference in how we lead and support.

I read this at the recommendation of my friend / mastermind peer. We are both in the business of coaching entrepreneurs and business owners and executives, and always working hard to raise our game and our effectiveness with them, so the perspective of reading this book for me was that of a coach and the desire to become a better coach through the powerful questions.
I had the pleasure of meeting Michael a couple of times and sharing a meal with him once in Toronto. Very bright man. I like the wa ...more
This book is absolutely BRILLIANT!
I have served as a Team Leader with Keller Williams, a managing broker of the largest Century 21 office in the world, and now, as a professional real estate coach. I work with many agents around the country to improve efficiencies and best business practices while growing their businesses.
I was constantly getting caught in the usual traps (without having much in the way of professional coaches training) of going through a coaching session without really feeling ...more
I've read many practical, popular and scholarly books on coaching, including several books on the subject and discipline by many of my professional colleagues and friends. Michael Bungay Stanier is also a colleague and his new book, The Coaching Habit, is the one book I will always recommend from now on. I finished my copy shortly before teaching a seminar on "Do You Want to be Better Boss? Coaching Skills for Managers" and recommended Stanier's book as the perfect follow-up and review.
This books provides the "Seven essential coaching questions" and explains how to use them to open the door for others' growth and progress toward a more intentional and successful life.
An easy reading, with examples and 7 questions that might help you better coach someone. Initially, I thought that the questions apply only for performance coaching but I found some equivalents to be quite fantastic. I loved the simplicity of the scheme, that being lazy cand bring insights and what else? Oh, the learning part. The questions relate to bring awareness of what was helpful/did someone find useful in the conversation means a lot for my next experiences. A nice holiday reading, I woul ...more
This book is as much about self-awareness as it is coaching, making it a practical guide to enhancing coaching skills. The Coaching Habit is very well written. For me, it was almost as if the author had followed me around, making notes of the many challenges that exist in today's workplace. I was able to put into practice right away what I learned from this book, and now that I have finished reading, I plan to study it to pick up additional reinforcement.
Mr. Stanier comes across as very personab ...more
This book is regarding how to provide coaching and conduct successful one on ones. The 7 questions you are supposed to ask are:
What is on your mind?
And what else?
What is the real challenge for you?
What do you want?
What do you want from me?/ How can I help?
What are you saying No to?
What was most useful for you about this conversation?
Planning to use this the next time I have a one on one with someone in my team.
