I’ve read 45 business & entrepreneurship books this year (out of 7 gazillion), and I’m excited to share my top choice for best business book of 2017! I also give you a quick synopsis of the book, too.
My criteria for best book is as follows:
1. Most actionable.
2. Most relevant.
3. It’s helped me get RESULTS.
Note: please know that I didn’t consider whether the book was published in 2017 or not. It’s simply what book in 2017 did I read that really made a huge difference. Thanks!
Big thanks to Chris Ducker for this book recommendation, and it’s a bonus that this is actually a self-published book, one of the few from the lot that I read this year.
The book I selected is The Coaching Habit, by Michael Bungay Stainer:

Whether you are an online influencer, a business owner, a manager, parent, grandparent, teacher, or just friend – you are considered a coach, and you can benefit from the content in this book.
At the heart of this book are the 7 essential questions that great coaches should ask, broken down into these categories:
1. The Kickstarter Question
2. The AWE Question
3. The Focus Question
4. The Foundation Question
5. The Lazy Question
6. The Strategic Question
7. The Learning Question
Through this process, you can become a better coach by not telling what people to do, but by asking the right questions, which reflects my personal experience with great coaches I’ve had in the past.
What kind of “coaching” do you do? Like this video and comment with your answer before December 25th because I’ll be selecting 5 random commenters on Christmas Day to win a copy of this book so you can start off 2018 with something super useful for you, your business, and your life.
