HR Latte, episode 99

The Coaching HabitMichael Bungay Stanier
, Founder and Senior Partner of Box of Crayons, joined Rayanne on HR Latte, to chat about his latest book filled with incredible ideas about habits, “The Coaching Habit: Say Less, Ask More, & Change the Way Your Lead Forever.”

“The Coaching Habit: This book almost killed… This topic would not leave me alone – my whole life I have been the guy who asked questions.” – Michael Bungay Stanier

The Coaching Habit

How to crack micro-habits. Michael shares his ideas and a new habit formula:

  • “When this happens…”  – identifying the trigger for old behavior
  • “Instead Of…” – identify the old habit you are looking to change
  • “I Will…” – identify a new habit you will do in 60 seconds or less

For more ideas on this same topic, check out for a downloadable report, Coaching Gurus –  6 1/2 Gurus: What the smartest people are telling us about the science and art of building new habits.
