Here it is: Six Pixels of Separation – The ThinkersOne Podcast – Episode #898. When it comes to unearthing the real power of coaching and getting the best out of people and the work that they do, few people make it as accessible, engaging and smart as Michael Bungay Stanier. He’s both a good friend and a perpetual fountain of wisdom. You might already be familiar with Michael’s breakthrough book, The Coaching Habit. It’s a tome that’s shifted the paradigm for managers and leaders by emphasizing the art of asking the right questions over doling out advice. But that’s not where his literary journey ends (and that book has sold well over a million copies). Michael has also authored The Advice Trap, Do More Great Work, How To Begin, and his latest, How To Work With (Almost) Anyone. His work always expands on the importance of navigating complex conversations and leadership scenarios. His works are more than just books – they’re guideposts for those eager to be more intentional, impactful, and, yes, humane, in how they lead. Michael’s approach to coaching (and life) is built on the premise that less is often more. He steers clear of abstract jargon and cuts straight to the chase, delivering insights that you can actually implement the moment you step out of our podcast realm and back into your daily grind. His philosophy aligns well with what we’ve always emphasized here on Six Pixels of Separation – The ThinkersOne Podcast — knowledge isn’t just for keeping… it’s for doing. With that, grab your notebook (you’re going to want to jot down the gold nuggets he shares), and get ready for an insightful ride. Lastly, Michael is also available to bring his wisdom into your everyday meetings, lunch & learns, and client events at ThinkersOne. As Michael often says, “Stay curious!” Enjoy the conversation…
