Happy 2nd & 8th Birthday!

February 29th is a special day. It's the 2nd and 8th birthday of The Coaching Habit, Michael Bungay Stanier’s best-selling book and the inspiration for our flagship training program. Beyond our work, we know how much this book has inspired learning, growth, and deeper connections at home and at work for people around the world. Pretty wise for an 8-year-old, no?

The Coaching Habit Birthday Contest

This year, we want to celebrate with all of you. The TCH readers who work at strengthening your coach-like curiosity muscle day after day. To do that, we partnered with our sister company, MBS.works to cook up a friendly contest.

We made it very easy. All you need to do is submit up to 250 words or upload a 2-minute video answering this question by February 29th

What difference has The Coaching Habit (TCH) made in your personal or professional life? 

There are no right or wrong answers, only your amazing stories. Here are some questions that might get you started:

  • Have you changed the way you work with your direct reports?
  • Have you engaged your kids differently because of something the book helped you see differently?
  • Do you have a new habit?
  • What question do you use most often and why?

That’s enough of our ideas. This is about you - and hearing all the ways you’ve been using curiosity.

We have two categories - personal impact and professional impact.

One lucky winner from each will get:

Professional Impact Prize (approximate value $2500)

  • An hour with Michael Bungay Stanier
  • 100 copies of The Coaching Habit to share inside your company or with another organization or with 100 of your friends and colleagues
  • A complete set of Michael Bungay Stanier's books

Personal Impact Prize (approximate value $2500)

  • An hour with Michael Bungay Stanier
  • Free How to Begin class and a one year membership in The Conspiracy
  • A complete set of Michael Bungay Stanier's books
