Every now and then I come across a book that has a significant impact on me. In this case, the book in question is The Coaching Habit by Michael Bungay Stanier.
The Coaching Habit has sold over 400,000 copies and is a Wall Street Journal Best-Seller. This book has informed much of the work my team and I at Cut Through have done over the past 18-24 months, so when I thought who would make a great person to chat to for my semi-regular spot on The TER Podcast, I asked Michael and he very generously agreed.
In what was a wide-ranging conversation involving gauntlets, sheep-shearing and trying to get kids to eat spinach, we explored how and why leaders could be more coach like.
