Elevate your leaders by helping them learn how to communicate more intentionally. Shift communication from reactive responses to clear, impactful dialogues. Save time, and reduce confusion, and increase clarity.
Equip your people managers with a skill that transforms their ability to give and receive feedback. Staying curious longer creates understanding of needs and experiences. Enhance the power of feedback by eliminating extraneous bias and building psychological safety and trust.
Curiosity acts as a powerful deterrent to micromanagement, disrupting the draining cycle of overwhelm. Embracing curiosity forces a pause in the rush to action, reducing the drive to 'do it all' and transforming overdependent teams into empowered problem-solvers.
Most well-intentioned people managers find themselves jumping in quickly when people come to them with a challenge. Adding to their overwhelm while disempowering others. Sound familiar? Help your people managers learn how to make space for the work that matters.
The Coaching Habit: Coach-like Curiosity
Many common workplace problems share root cause: Advice-giving. While well-meaning, the habit of rushing in with an answer or suggestion creates unintended consequences that show up in sneaky ways.
The Coaching Habit starts by helping people managers recognize their advice-giving style – what we call the Advice Monster Habit. Then we introduce an alternative habit and new questions to help people get clear, to create possibilities and to spark the right kind of action.

Incredible course! I stumbled across The Coaching Habit book last year with no prior knowledge about this layout. The book blew me away in its approach and this course really reinforced the concepts. Would recommend this to anyone in a leadership role!
I enjoyed how interactive this workshop was, it kept me engaged at all times and no opportunity to get distracted and lose focus. And I feel very strongly that I will be able to use these new tools to be a much better coach and leader.
The practice opportunities spread THROUGHOUT the day were super impactful and made you feel like you could truly do this when you walk out the door.
I think this is a great course and an eye opener for us emerging leaders to stay curious not only professionally but also personally in all relationships. Try to ask questions and get the other person to really come up with real problems and handle the solutions themselves so that we are not overwhelmed.
I have found that course’s teachings to be as beneficial in my work life as it is in my personal life. No matter the situation, no matter the concern brought to my attention, I find myself always holding off a lot longer on providing an answer until I dive deeper into the root of the problem (“staying curious longer”). It’s a skill that pays back dividends tenfold.
This will help us manage our Sales Professionals in a proactive way that allows everyone to creatively think of solutions collectively.
Absolutely loved the course and how simple the application is to use in 20 minutes to get real impactful results.
