LeadU presents The Coaching Habit


The Coaching Habit

The Coaching Habit: Say Less, Ask More and Change the Way You Lead Forever focuses on seven essential coaching questions and the tools to make them an everyday way to work less hard, but have more impact.

So, what are these seven essential questions?

Questions 1, 2, and 3 get managers off on the right foot for any coaching conversation from formal performance reviews to casual lunchtime chats.

1. “What’s on your mind?” This is the Kickstart Question, intended to quickly get to what matters most.
2. “And what else?” Dubbed the AWE Question. This ensures that nothing remains unsaid. Stanier calls it “the best coaching question in the world,” because it continues the conversation without indulging a manager’s want to take over and be an expert.
3. “What is the real challenge here for you?” This Focus Question helps narrow down what really matters to an employee and emphasizes the real problem, not just the first problem.
4. “What do you want?” The Foundation Question gets employees thinking about how they can affect their environments, a subtle way to prod the risk-and-reward response of the brain.
5. “How can I help?” Called the Lazy Question, it forces the employee to make a concrete request so there are no assumptions.
6. “If you’re saying ‘yes’ to this, what are you saying ‘no’ to?” Ah, the Strategic Question. A “yes” without a “no” to something is just an empty promise, so this question makes the promise real.
7. “What’s most useful for you?” The final question is the Learning Question, asking the employee to reflect on the process to reinforce learning and development.
