Editorial Reviews

Review

“Michael Bungay Stanier has done for curiosity what Brené Brown did for vulnerability. The Advice Trap is superbly written, a very quick and enjoyable read, but most importantly it will develop you into a far more influential leader.”
―Thomas A. Kolditz, PhD; Brigadier General, US Army (ret); Director, Doerr Institute at Rice University

“Michael Bungay Stanier's been named the #1 thought leader in the world on coaching. This book is one of the reasons why he’s a champion for the shift―for people, teams, and organizations―from advice-driven to curiosity-led.”
―Marshall Goldsmith, the only two-time Thinkers 50 #1 Leadership Thinker in the world

“This book speaks truth: when the best leaders do less themselves, they get more from others. But learning to do less can be painfully hard. Fortunately, Michael Bungay Stanier applies his signature wit and clarity to the challenge, which means making hard change just got a whole lot easier.”
―Liz Wiseman, author of Multipliers and Rookie Smarts

“To get more from your people, you need to grow their capability and engagement, and step up yourself. A great way to do that is to give less advice and do more coaching.”
―Jeremy Darroch, Group CEO, Sky

“Michael Bungay Stanier literally wrote the book on how excessive advice is a sneaky monster, undermining leaders and their teams alike. The Advice Trap is a delightful conversation with a trusted partner, and it will help you tame your Advice Monster.”
―Whitney Johnson, bestselling author of Disrupt Yourself and Build an A Team

“Oh, the sweet temptation to jump right in and provide the answer! In The Advice Trap, Michael Bungay Stanier not only teaches us why jumping in is wrong, but with humour and wisdom shows us a better (and easier!) approach guaranteed to bring out the best in the people we coach and lead.”
―Laura Gassner Otting, bestselling author of Limitless

“Most leaders want to be good coaches, but coaching doesn’t come naturally. The Advice Trap gets to the core of coaching: be humble and stay curious. It is quick and easy to read, backed by science, and offers practical tools to enable leaders to tame their Advice Monster and learn how to coach.”
―Dig Howitt, CEO and President, Cochlear --This text refers to the paperback edition.
