Michael Bungay Stanier
Michael Bungay Stanier is the founder and senior partner of Box of Crayons, a company that helps organizations all over the world do less Good Work and more Great Work. They are best known for their coaching programs, helping time-crunched managers coach in 10 minutes or less.
Michael left Australia 22 years ago to be a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University, where his only significant achievement was falling in love with a Canadian... which is why he now lives in Toronto, having spent time in London and Boston.
He has written a number of books. The best known with almost 100,000 copies sold is Do More Great Work. More recently he has written The Coaching Habit: Say Less, Ask More and Change the Way You Lead Forever. But the one he’s proudest of is End Malaria, a collection of essays on Great Work from leading thinkers which raised $400,000 for Malaria No More.
