 In This Interview, Michael Bungay Stanier and I Discuss...

  • The One You Feed parable
  • His new book, The Coaching Habit: Say Less, Ask More and Change the Way You Lead Forever
  • The way that the question, How do you stay curious for just a little bit longer? Can transform the way you show up in your life
  • How feeling safe can help us access our highest selves
  • The power of sitting in the ambiguity of asking a question rather than jumping to the feeling of certainty of telling someone an answer
  • The Karpman Drama Triangle: the victim, the persecutor & the rescuer
  • The heart of the Victim role: There's only one way to do this, but you don't like the way it's being done.
  • The best coaching question in the world: And what else?
  • That the first answer someone gives you isn't their only answer and it's rarely their best answer.
  • It's a great self-management tool for rescuers because it keeps you from jumping in, it allows you to stay curious a little bit longer
  • It's a great question for the victim role because it helps give them other options
  • Most people only consider two options before making a decision: should I stay or should I go? Asking this question can give you a third option
  • The five essential components to building an effective new habit
  • That 45% of our waking behavior is habitual
  • The 95% of our brain activity happens in the unconscious brain
  • Since it's inevitable that when building a new habit you will "fall off the bus" or fail, it's important that you have a plan for what you'll do at that point
  • How do you hold yourself firmly but compassionately accountable when it comes to changing your behavior?
  • The kickstart question - a good way to start conversation with anybody: What's on your mind
