The Coaching Habit

Michael Bungay Stanier

"The Coaching Habit" by Michael Bungay Stanier is a practical guide to coaching in the workplace. The book provides a simple framework for managers and leaders to become more effective coaches, and to help their employees reach their full potential.

The book is divided into seven chapters, each of which focuses on a specific coaching technique. The first chapter, "The Kickstart Question," introduces the idea of coaching as a habit and offers a simple but powerful question to help start coaching conversations.

Subsequent chapters focus on topics such as asking powerful questions, listening more effectively, and encouraging employees to take action. The book also includes case studies and examples to illustrate how the coaching techniques can be applied in real-world situations.

Throughout the book, Bungay Stanier emphasizes the importance of being a "lazy" coach - that is, focusing on asking the right questions rather than providing all the answers. He also highlights the benefits of coaching, both for individual employees and for the organization as a whole, including increased productivity, engagement, and job satisfaction.

Overall, "The Coaching Habit" is a practical and accessible guide to coaching in the workplace. The book provides a simple but effective framework for managers and leaders to develop their coaching skills and help their employees achieve their full potential.
