#ProdChat – 6-1-16 – Leadership Productivity Skill No. 1 – Coaching with Michael Bungay Stanier

#ProdChat – 06/01/2016 – “Leadership Productivity Skill #1: Coaching” with Michael Bungay Stanier (@boxofcrayons)!

On June 1, 2016, #ProdChat discussed the topic, “Leadership Productivity Skill #1: Coaching” with our special guest, Michael Bungay Stanier, management coach and owner, Box of Crayons (@boxofcrayons)! Michael recently published his newest book, The Coaching Habit, and I invited him on the #ProdChat stream to discuss leadership, productivity, and coaching. As the first Canadian Coach of the Year, a bestselling author on doing your best work, and an all-around wealth of knowledge, this was a fantastic conversation well worth checking out, and Michael’s website which is full of great resources, blog and video posts, and his podcast! Watch the slideshow to see what the Michael Bungay Stanier and the productivity enthusiasts on #ProdChat had to say about coaching as a leadership productivity practice. Enjoy!
