Publisher's Summary

From the author of the phenomenal best seller The Coaching Habit comes a book of advice...on how to give less advice. Ah, the irony.

The Coaching Habit was an unexpected best seller: over 750 thousand copies sold so far, a Wall Street Journal best seller, and used by people and organizations around the world. If The Coaching Habit says, “Here are the seven essential questions to be more coach-like”, The Advice Trap is about getting to grips with how to actually change your behavior, so you stay curious a little bit longer.

It sounds like it should be easy, but it’s not. To get there, leading coach and trainer Michael Bungay Stanier offers specific coaching strategies, particularly on how to focus on what matters most. The audiobook of The Advice Trap gives you tools to make your conversations, coaching, and otherwise, irresistible.

If you’ve already heard The Advice Trap, thank you, and there’s a ton of added value content for you in the audiobook, too. Michael’s invited other voices to respond to what was most useful for them in each of the chapters, so there are different perspectives and less of a monologue of advice.

You’ll hear from:

  • Pau Gasol, NBA All-Star
  • Dr. Alex Osterwalder, leading management thinker
  • Dr. Kofi Hope, co-founder of Monumental
  • Feyzi Fatehi, CEO of Corent Technology
  • Leanne Hughes, host of the First Time Facilitator podcast
  • Dr. Shannon Minifie, CEO of Box of Crayons
  • Sandy McIntosh, EVP and CHRO of TELUS
  • Tyson Yunkaporta, author of the acclaimed book Sand Talk

In 2019, Michael Bungay Stanier was named the number-one thought leader in coaching, and was short-listed for the coaching award by Thinkers50, the “Oscars of Management”. His works been featured in journals such as HBR, Fast Company, Forbes, and Inc., and his company, Box of Crayons, has trained more than 100,000 people, regular managers, leaders, and individual contributors in the tools and mindset required for this essential leadership behavior: staying curious and being more coach-like. You’ll get all of that wisdom and experience when you listen to The Advice Trap. (And, by the way, thank you in advance for buying it and listening.)

Voice over is very unclear!

Can’t get past the amount of saliva this dude is slurping while reading the audiobook. I’m going to have to get a hard copy because, listening is a nightmare.

this is a keeper!

I love this book and I will listen to it again soon. the author does a fantastic job of narrating.

this book makes the most of the audio format by bringing in other people for discussion about key points in the book. this technique, along with other formatting features, makes it easy absorb the valuable concepts that are presented.

the information in the book is invaluable and inspiring. certainly one of my favorite audible purchases.

Its not all about not giving Advice

Michael has published a complimentary piece, with this book, to his already well acclaimed book The Coaching Habit. This book however only briefly reflects on the previous publicatipn and so 99% of this book is new and thought provoking.

An Excellent book and a must read for all new and old coaches and leaders!

Excellent concise lessons

I found this book the be a really nice follow-on from The Coaching Habit. It contains concise and to-the/point lessons\advice on coaching which continues on from The Coaching Habit, but also can stand alone.
It focuses on some of the key “traps” and simple techniques that make a big difference.
