Unfortunately, the Advice Trap is the same book, which means it's excellent...but not worth the money or reading time if you've read the Coaching Habit. Disappointing.
I love the definitions for change - easy and hard!! PERFECT and so logical!
And the questions - I also am a leadership and facilitation skills trainer and I plan to start handing out the questions as great seeds for conversations!!
My advice : <I am trying to tame my MONSTER but Michael, it is so hard to do>
BUY THIS BOOK! READ IT ! And then give it to someone else to read or buy them one!!
I needed help.
Researching on how to influence people to adopt a system, I came across Michael on YouTube. Being curious, I watched a few of his videos. Then being intrigued, I bought “The Coaching Habit” on Kindle and Audible. A book beyond excellence that lead me to snapping up this book too.
The Advice Trap, which is a seamless and reinforcing continuation of the former book, eloquently encapsulates the practicality and ease of understanding of what it is to be coach-like.
I find myself continually referencing both books where I have “mind-mapped” and “process mapped” the learnings that I practice everyday.
Although the concepts are delivered in an easy to understand way, and the concepts are easy in their own right, putting them to use requires practice, repetition, practice, repetition and so on of which Michael prepares the reader for. It is referred to as “hard change” where Michael, in his witty way, explains how to change.
Both books have been revolutionary for me, and for this I am very grateful for Michael.
When ideas are playfully explained they own a place in your mind. Have you ever watched Michael's videos? They'll leave indelible impressions in your psyche about doing more great work. His latest book is that colorful and animated. Buy it for yourself or give it to anyone you want to help make more of themselves. Giddy up!
But then, viola! He does it again with “The Advice Trap!” In it Michael goes much deeper exploring reasons that it is so hard to avoid jumping in with all the answers and more importantly provides practical, specific steps that when followed help us to stay curious longer and jump to advice-giving a little more slowly.
And, personally I loved the opportunity at the end of each chapter to reflect and capture what was valuable in each chapter. Further, throughout the book he provides information on how to access even more helpful (and free) information from his website. Finally, at the end of the book he provides “A Bonus of Extra Goodness” that includes book recommendations and much more.
If you want to be more “coach like,” if you deliver programs designed to help leaders/others be more coach like, or even if you want to do a better job of coaching yourself, then is absolutely a must read!
