In this episode, I welcome Michael Bungay Stanier, founder and Senior Partner of Box of Crayons. Michael is the author of a new book that details how project managers can be more effective coaches. In The Coaching Habit, Michael proposes that coaching is not a formal event, such as a one-on-one meeting. Rather, it's something we can do regularly, informally, in 10 minutes or less.
