The Advice Trap - What It Is

Updated: Apr 5

Here’s something to think about it… 


Sometimes people get excited when hearing someone complain, vent, or not be able to do something and they jump right into advice giving mode; many people love giving advice. Some people’s default management style is also advice giving. But advice giving is not usually the best answer in most situations, the easier path to take sure, but not the best. Sometimes the other person isn’t even looking for advice and other times we don’t take the opportunity to build critical thinking skills in others. In Michael Stanier’s book, “The Advice Trap,” he discusses how saying less and asking more matters. I can’t wait to continue discussing his book this month!  

My question to you: Do you default into advice giving mode?
