Everybody Matters Podcast: Michael Bungay Stanier on Coaching

About a year ago I shared Barry-Wehmiller’s leadership philosophy and news of our book on Michael Bungay Stanier’s Great Work Podcast from Box of Crayons. Recently Michael released his latest book called The Coaching Habit: Say Less, Ask More and Change The Way You Lead Forever.

His book very much resonates with our core principles at Barry-Wehmiller, you can see it in the title: “say less, ask more.” In other words, listen. Really, truly listen.  On this week’s episode of the Everybody Matters podcast, Michael talks about the difficulty leaders have in listening and why that may be, but he also gives practical suggestions on how leaders can be better coaches and help their people feel like they really matter.
