About the webinar:

Michael Bungay Stanier explains how advice-giving goes bad, the three personas of your Advice Monster and the powerful act of staying curious.

Too often we equate “helpful” with “advice”. Now, there’s an important place for giving advice in a coaching relationship, but it has to be the right advice, offered for the right reasons, at the right time.

And too often, that gets sabotaged by your Advice Monster.

In this session that’s both practical and provocative, you’ll

  • Discover the three Advice Monsters … and what drives each one.
  • Uncover which of the Advice Monsters is most likely to sabotage your coaching conversations
  • Begin the process for taming your Advice Monster, so you can keep it in its cage
  • And as importantly, you’ll know how and when to best offer up your awesome advice, ideas and suggestions

This session will not only help you refine your presence and impact as a coach, it will give you tools you can teach to your clients.
