Description

A significant reason managers don’t coach their people is that there’s no obvious WIIFM. Sure, the person they coach improves in engagement, productivity and impact, so the organization benefits too. But for the manager, coaching can feel like just another obligation. By understanding the Drama Triangle, managers can reach that aha! Moment where they realize how being more coach-like can help them work less hard and have more impact.

In this webinar, Michael Bungay Stanier will explore the three archetypal roles of the Drama Triangle. You’ll also learn three ways to get out of the pull of the Drama Triangle. You’ll leave with a clear method to recognize and avoid behaviours that prevent us from being the best version of ourselves.

About Michael Bungay Stanier

Michael Bungay Stanier is the Senior Partner of Box of Crayons, a company that helps organizations do less Good Work and more Great Work. Box of Crayons is best known for their coaching programs that help time-crunched managers coach in 10 minutes or less.

He’s written a number of books, the best known of which is Do More Great Work, created a series of short internet videos that have been seen by millions of people around the world, and organized the Great Work MBA, a virtual conference that had 10,000 registrants. He’s proudest of the book End Malaria, a collection of essays about Great Work from thought leaders that has raised $400,000 for Malaria No More. To balance all of this out, Michael was banned from his high school graduation for "the balloon incident", was sued by one of his Law School lecturers for defamation and managed to give himself a concussion while digging a hole as a laborer.

Michael was the first Canadian Coach of the Year and a Rhodes Scholar. 

“If I had to pick a person to have dinner with, when I need to be prodded and challenged and inspired to think about the things I really am committed to think about for myself and what I'm doing, I'd pick Michael Bungay Stanier. He has an ability to shake our tree and make us more conscious and responsible about what we know but aren't willing to admit we know yet.”
David Allen, author of Getting Things Done
