FOUNDATIONS FOR COACH-LIKE CURIOSITY

Advice is killing your company. We know that curiosity-driven cultures are more resilient, innovative and successful, and yet even the most well-intentioned people find themselves defaulting to advice-giving when their colleagues present them with a challenge. This means that people are often focusing on the wrong challenge, applying the wrong solution and impeding their colleagues’ development and contribution.

The Coaching Habit is our foundational program for waking people up to the power of curiosity. We’re focused on changing long-embedded behaviours, and our approach seeks to uncover the prizes for — and prices of — defaulting to Advice Monster mode, while also creating the case for being more curious and more coach-like. Participants will discover the Seven Essential Questions, practicing them while avoiding advice-giving and also remaining curious. Participants learn and use a practical tool to help them shift their behaviour, and they’ll leave the program having experienced first-hand the transformative potential and long-term benefits of staying curious longer.
