Leader Led Social Learning

In 2003 our co-founder, Phil LeNir, was director of engineering at a high tech firm struggling to deal with layoffs and business changes due to the dot.com crash. He had no budget and no time but he needed to get his management team back on track. Phil turned to acclaimed business school professor, Henry Mintzberg from McGill University. Henry is known for challenging the traditional methods of management development.

Henry suggested Phil get his team together to "reflect on their natural experiences in light of conceptual ideas." Phil started having regular peer-coaching meetings with his team to reflect on current practices, build skills, share ideas, and solve current challenges. Their 90-minute learning meetings used content developed by leading management thinkers as a platform to share experiences, deepen self-reflection, and increase collaboration. There was an immediate impact on Phil and everyone on his team.

In 2007, Henry and Phil launched CoachingOurselves. CoachingOurselves peer-coaching programs are now used by over 15,000 managers in 8 languages around the world.
