overview
Coaching is an art and it's far easier said than done. It takes courage to ask questions 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. In this practical and inspiring book, Michael Bungay Stanier, a senior partner of Box of Crayons (a company best known for its coaching programs that help organizations do less Good Work and more Great Work) 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 daily practice.
