Zach Stone is an agile coach with a background that includes organizational change management, conflict transformation, and behavioral science. He leverages these experiences in his work helping organizations, teams, and individuals adopt an agile approach to work. One of the primary techniques in Zach’s toolbox is Motivational Interviewing. In this episode of the podcast, Zach explains what motivational interviewing is, how it works, and why it is such a powerful approach to helping individuals move towards choices that can better help them achieve the outcomes they are looking for.
If you are looking for better ways to help your teams and organizations make more mindful and intentional choices, the information Zach shares in this interview will offer you a new skillset to begin developing so that you can better serve those around you.
While you are listening to this podcast, pay close attention to Zach’s voice. As you’ll hear towards the end of the interview, his measured use of language, speech patterns, and the way he engages is not only intentional, but it is a skill he spent a lot of time developing. I was keenly aware of it throughout the conversation and it made doing the interview an absolute blast.
