Today I am joined by Michael Bungay Stanier, the author of the best selling book on coaching this century! His book, The Coaching Habit, has sold close to a million copies and has thousands of 5-star reviews online. His latest book, How to Begin, helps people find the clarity and courage to take on a Worthy Goal and start something thrilling, important and daunting.

He founded Box of Crayons, a learning and development company that helps organisations move from advice-driven to curiosity-led. They’ve trained hundreds of thousands of managers to be more coach-like and their clients range from Microsoft to Gucci.

He says he left Australia about 30 years ago to be a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University …where his only significant achievement was falling in love with a Canadian …which is why he now lives in Toronto, having spent time in London and Boston.

We discuss: 

  • the core fundamental questions that every manager can use to be an effective coachlike leader,
  • Why curiosity is the core attribute in fostering innovation,

and a whole lot more!
