Coaching for Great Work
Are you a manager or leader who wants to coach more – but is feeling overwhelmed. Too many strategic priorities, too much email, too many meetings, rising expectations and the complications of getting a team to be more than the sum of its parts.
Under stress like this, old management habits die hard.
Bottom line? “Do more coaching” is easy in theory and difficult in practice for the time-stretched manager. A recent study found that, even with managers trained in coaching skills, less than 25% of people receiving coaching said it was having a significant impact on either performance or satisfaction.
Those are shocking statistics. And unlike every other coach program for managers we’ve seen, Coaching for Great Work was built from scratch to tackle head-on the barriers that stop managers coaching more.

Coaching in The Drama Triangle
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.
