Today on the podcast, Michael Bungay Stanier joins us. Michael has written books that have sold about a million copies all told, including The Coaching Habit, a self-published book that’s become the best-selling book on coaching this century. He founded a training and development company, Box of Crayons, that has taught coaching skills to hundreds of thousands of people around the world. He loves that it’s a human-centered place to work, and that it practices what it preaches.
But wait! There’s more! He’s been happily married for 30 years or so; he was a Rhodes Scholar; he’s created a book in partnership with Seth Godin that raised $400,000 for Malaria No More; he has been named #1 Thought Leader in Coaching and a Coaching Guru; he’s launched several podcasts; and he has spoken live and virtually to crowds of thousands…
Michael has never been much of a fan of the status quo, and his privilege is something he tries to use thoughtfully to create more possibilities for everyone.
He’s spent his career pushing back at power structures in unsubtle ways (he finished law school being sued for defamation by one of his professors), direct ways (disrupting some of the ways publishing works) and more effective, scalable ones (his approach to coaching “un-weirds coaching”, makes it a technology accessible to everyone, and turns leadership and hierarchy on its head.)
