The Advice Trap

Overview

As humans, we love to give advice. When we hear someone close by mention a problem they're struggling with, it's easy to jump right in there and start trying to solve it. But how often have you paused to think about how much more you're talking than they are? Or if you're even solving the right problem? Sadly, when it comes to helping others, most of us do way more talking than listening, whether or not our proposed solution is actually helpful for their specific situation and needs.

These are important messages to reflect upon while reading Michael Bungay Stanier's The Advice Trap: Be Humble, Stay Curious, & Change the Way You Lead Forever. This book is a follow-up to The Coaching Habit, and it will help us beat our Advice Monsters in order to truly help others.
