Lean Blog Interviews — 243: Michael Bungay Stanier, “The Coaching Habit”

My guest for Episode #243, Michael Bungay Stanier, takes us a bit outside of the Lean realm… but that’s good. Our topic today, which ties in very nicely to Lean and Kaizen (as you’ll hear in our conversation) is coaching. His most recent book is titled The Coaching Habit: Say Less, Ask More & Change the Way You Lead Forever and it’s available today. It’s a very practical book that’s full of tips and seven key questions that you can use as a coach. Michael is “founder and Senior Partner of Box of Crayons, a company that helps organizations do less Good Work and more Great Work.”
