Who Is Your Advice Monster?
According to 📚 Michael Bungay Stanier we all have an advice monster whether we like it or not. Unfortunately, often times our advice doesn't work for 2 reasons.
Reason #1: We are solving the wrong problem. Sometimes the people we connect with don't even know the real problem, so by jumping in too soon without knowing the depth of the situation, we can send people off in the wrong direction.
Reason #2: We are proposing a bad solution. With only a slice of the full picture, and our own baggage and assumptions, our solution and advice might not fit.
Both of these stem from a pesky little advice monster that we all carry around with us.
We can't get rid of our advice monster, but we can learn to tame it.
That's what this book is all about.
The book is a quick and easy read...the implementation is where the rubber hits the road, though.
If you are interested in support to move beyond just the consumption of the ideas, our leadership book circle is diving into the book for the next 2 months. Would you like to join us?
Which of these 3 monsters most hits home with you?
