What if your managers could learn from each other?

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 needed to do something to get his management team back on track, but he had no budget and no time. Phil turned to Henry Mintzberg, a business school professor from McGill University. Henry is famous for changing the way MBA's are taught.

Henry suggested Phil get his team together to "reflect on their natural experiences in light of conceptual ideas". So Phil started having regular management learning meetings for his team to learn from each other and coach themselves. They used material adapted from the seminars by the business school professors in Henry's program. This proved to be highly effective for everyone, fit their busy schedule and had immediate impact.

Together they launched CoachingOurselves which is now used in leadership programs by over 15,000 managers in 8 languages around the world.
