It takes courage to ask a question rather than offer up advice, but in this book ๐Ÿ“š Michael Bungay Stanier gives seven questions and the tools to make them an everday way to work less hard and have more impact.

On communication and habits, Michael says that the single biggest problem with communication is the illusion that it has taken place already and that 45% of our waking behaviour is habitual.

Michael touches on learning and explains that “people don’t really learn when you tell them something.

They don’t even really learn when they do something.

They start learning, start creating new neural pathways, only when they have a chance to recall and reflect on what just happened.”

“When we take time and effort to generate knowledge and find an answer rather than just reading it, our memory retention is increased.”

The book is structured around seven key questions…

๐Ÿ”ธ๏ธ The Kickstart Question
๐Ÿ”ธ๏ธ The Awe Question
๐Ÿ”ธ๏ธ The Focus Question
๐Ÿ”ธ๏ธ The Foundation Question
๐Ÿ”ธ๏ธ The Lazy Question
๐Ÿ”ธ๏ธ The Strategic Question
๐Ÿ”ธ๏ธ The Learning Question

…but you’ll need to buy this great book to find out what the questions are!
