We’re a collaborative group at ResourcefulManager, so I wasn’t surprised when Dannie Evans, our Marketing guru, shared this with me:
“Heard this podcast on Hubspot today. Guy wrote a new book on coaching employees. Great stuff! Gotta get it.”
Oops! Michael Bungay Stanier’s “The Coaching Habit” was sitting on my desk. He had sent it to me earlier this year. And I hadn’t shared it – with Dannie or our readers.
So here goes. Yes, it’s a valuable read. It’s a fresh, innovative approach to coaching employees.
And my favorite part? Michael shows you a way that only takes 10 minutes of your time to become a great coach. So check it out.
Oh yeah, I gave Dannie the book, so now I don’t feel so guilty.
In case you missed it …
Here’s what the ResourcefulManager team has been reading this week:
