Getting Out of The Advice Trap – Podcast Series for Leaders

Date and Time




This session is being offered by Learning & Development.

When asked for advice, author of The Coaching Habit and The Advice Trap, Michael Bungay Stanier, says every part of his body wants to offer it. Advice giving is seductive because it makes us feel important, and like we’re serving others. But there’s a price to pay when it’s reactive and automatic, especially when you are in a leadership role.

In a recent podcast Michael makes the case to Brené Brown that if we want to have an organization where people are engaged and flourishing, leaders need to make the shift from being advice driven to curiosity led. By taming their “advice monster”, leaders free up space to add more value, rather than feeling compelled to fix everyone’s problems.

We invite you to join L&D hosts, Evelina and Linda, in a listen and learn together session on taming your advice monster, stepping out of the “drama triangle”, and staying curious just a little bit longer.

Facilitators: Evelina Rog, Senior Consultant, & Linda Watt, Director, HR Learning and Development, University of Guelph
