On this episode, Michael Bungay Stanier, author of The Coaching Habit, talks with me about solving problems in the workplace with speed. A leader’s job is to build an independently capable team – which is best done through strategic and timely coaching. You’ll leave this conversation with a better sense of how to not only put out the fires in your workplace, but how to help your employees put out their own fires without leaving your desk.
