As part of The Summit Asia Pacific in 2018, The Leadership Circle Asia Pacific is hosting Michael Bungay Stanier in Sydney to facilitate his globally recognised workshop, The Coaching Habit. We invite coaches, consultants, managers, leaders and those interested in developing key coaching skills to attend, places are limited.



Coaching That Sticks

You already know the value of developing coaching skills: coaching can increase focus and capacity, reduce overwhelm and dependency, and drive both engagement and impact. You’ve probably been in or brought in coaching programs before … and most likely they haven’t stuck.

Why? Managers and leaders are stretched more thinly than ever before. They don’t have time to add another task to their job description. In today’s busy world, they need to coach someone fast and as part of the work they already do — not in addition to it.


What if you and/or your leaders could coach in 10 Minutes or less?

We help consultants, coaches, managers and leaders develop — and keep — the coaching habit. When you or your clients become more coach-like, coaching ceases to be a one-off formal event and instead becomes a part of your everyday repertoire.

This innovative, award-winning program is an introduction to coaching skills for coaches, consultants, managers and leaders. In this half-day session, The Coaching Habit program shows you how to slay the advice monster so that you/your clients can say less, ask more and change the way you/they lead forever. To ensure that it becomes an innate way of leading and interacting, we deliver tools and accountability systems to get it “in your/their bones.”


3 Key Components


1. New Way Of Seeing Coaching: To reframe coaching and break down resistance.


2. Practical Coaching Tools: To ensure next-day-ready skills and daily coaching.


3. The Art & Science of Behaviour Change: To shift behaviours and embed coaching.


Why The Coaching Habit is Different

Here are key ways The Coaching Habit ensures that learning sticks.

We Make Coaching A Normal Everyday Activity, Not "Weird HR"  

We believe that being more coach-like can transform every interaction. The Coaching Habit is intuitive and practical, and can be used immediately and every day.

We Show That Coaching Helps The Manager Too, Not Just The Person Being Coached

We bring a new understanding of how coaching helps the busy manager work less hard and have more impact.

We Teach Practical Skills, Not Abstract Theory

We don’t teach a coaching model but build on the wisdom in the room, so that people leave with insights and skills that are usable and practical for them.

Michael Bungay Stanier

He has written a number of books. His latest, the Wall Street Journal bestseller The Coaching Habit, has sold over 350,000 copies. It has been praised as one of the few business books that actually makes people laugh out loud.

He was the first Canadian Coach of the Year, is a Rhodes Scholar, and was recently recognized as the #3 Global Guru in coaching. Balancing out these moments of success, Michael was banned from his high school graduation for “the balloon incident,” was sued by one of his law school lecturers for defamation, and his first published piece of writing was a Harlequin romance short story called “The Male Delivery.”

"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
