The Five Question Manager

A common complaint about coaching skills training is there’s a lot of theory and a whole lot of nothing on practical tools that people can use right away. Michael Bungay Stainer, founder of ‘Box of Crayons,’ will be the speaker at this webinar.  Michael said "We know a fancy coaching model doesn’t really help anyone coach more often. Having trained more than 10,000 managers in practical coaching skills, we know that mastering just five essential questions can significantly elevate a manager’s impact … and that of their team."

In this practical webinar you will:

  • discover the three vicious cycles that keep managers – and their teams – stuck
  • learn the five core questions you need so that you (and those you lead) can focus on the work that matters
  • get three quick-to-master techniques to ask a question well (it’s harder to do than it sounds!)
  • find the most powerful coaching question of them all (and it has just three words)

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.

On the way to founding Box of Crayons ten years ago, Michael lived in Australia, England, the US and Canada (his current home), where he worked in the fields of innovation and change management.

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 labourer...
He 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
