This post is part of the 📖 The Coaching Habit series.
Today, I am reading a new chapter Question Masterclass Part 2 from the book The Coaching Habit written by Author, Michael Bungay Stanier.
Yesterday, I read some sections of The Kickstart Question from the book.
Tomorrow, I will be reading a new chapter The AWE Question. Look out for tomorrow’s article.
Question Masterclass Part 2
Cut the Intro and Ask the Question
If you know what question to ask, get to the point and ask it.
Here’s Your New Habit
WHEN THIS HAPPENS
When I’ve got a question to ask.
Setting it up, framing it, explaining it, warming up to it and generally taking forever to get to the moment.
Ask the question. (And then shut up to listen to the answer.)
Do you know you can listen to this book on Amazon Audible for FREE?
If you are not into reading like me, then you can listen to this book for FREE on Amazon AudibleDon't Read. Just 🎧
Cut the intro and go to the point and if you must have a lead-in phrase, try “Out of curiosity.” It lessens the “heaviness” of any question.
