We believe in developing leaders
through open and honest conversations.
Since 2007, CoachingOurselves has been pioneering peer-learning as a way to transform organizations, manage change, and develop better leaders. Co-founded by management thinker Professor Henry Mintzberg and Phil LeNir, this approach creates a culture of continuous learning and growth in organizations.
CoachingOurselves brings together world renowned authors and thinkers like Henry Mintzberg, Linda Hill, Edgar Schein, Sally Helgesen and Otto Scharmer, delivering a wide ranging expertise that supports learning based on discussion and reflection. The results? More effective leaders who have a positive impact on their organizations and their communities.
"Thoughtful reflection on natural experience, in the light of conceptual ideas, is the most powerful tool we have for management learning.” - Henry Mintzberg
CoachingOurselves was sparked by a need for change, a need for a more human approach to leadership development. Learn how Phil LeNir went from managing software teams in a US based organization to pioneering a peer-learning approach to leadership development with professor and author Henry Mintzberg.
CoachingOurselves was born from Henry Mintzberg’s approach to management education. But it’s his theory of “Rebalancing Society'' that is front and center in our philosophy. We believe that whatever type of organization you work for, all managers and leaders have a role to play in creating sustainable, inclusive, and human-centered practices of management.
Our mission is to develop more efficient and effective managers that will positively impact their organizations which in turn will be a positive presence in their communities and society as a whole.
