I read a getAbstract summary of The Coaching Habit by Michael Bungay Stanier. This appealed to me since I'm working on my coaching at work as I build out my product management team. The book talks about how to form a habit generally, as well as the habits you need for being an effective coach. I only had one main takeaway, which is to ask the following coaching questions:
- “What’s on your mind?”
- “And what else?”
- “What’s the real challenge here for you?”
- “What do you want?”
- “How can I help?”
- “If you’re saying yes to this, what are you saying no to?”
- “What was most useful for you?”
