Author, speaker and Canada's first Coach of the Year, Michael Bungay Stanier, is my guest today on the show. And we're talking Coaching! I always say that leaders listen and that they particularly listen to the stuff they don't want to hear. Well, in this podcast Michael shares a few of the most important questions you can ask so that you can sit back and do some listening. In this way, by adopting a coach-approach, you move in to the role of "creating the space" rather than fixing all the problems. You're able to help others become leaders rather than having to drive everything yourself and you get to be exposed to ideas, perspectives and solutions that are new to you. Best-selling author Michael is so easy to listen to and he's made coaching something that anyone can do...and something anyone who claims to be a leader needs to prioritise. His new book - The Coaching Habit: Say less, ask more and change the way you lead forever - is on Amazon and available through all good book-sellers NOW!
