Easy Change vs. Hard Change
(The Difference Every Coach MUST Know)
Special Regional International Coaching Week Event
offered by ICF Northeast Chapters
Michael Bungay Stanier
If you're a coach, you're a catalyst for change.
You're helping your clients glean new insights, put them into action, and become different. (No wonder we all love this job.)
But change is difficult. One of the reasons it's difficult is that we muddle up the difference between Easy Change and Hard Change. If you're not clear on the difference, you can spend pointless time, money, and energy applying the wrong tools to make progress.
In this practical, highly interactive, and thoroughly engaging webinar, Michael Bungay Stanier will
Tease apart the difference between Easy Change and Hard Change
Confirm the strategies that already work for Easy Change
Illuminate the shadows of Hard Change, in particular the two big questions that people don't ask enough
Understand the role of sacrifice in the commitment to progress
Provide an excess of metaphors about ... everything. (He's big on metaphors.)
Engage you in small group discussions and leave plenty of time for questions
There's a lot here. This webinar will change you, and it will help you be a catalyst of change for your clients.

En route to today—and these are essential parts of his origin story—Michael knocked himself unconscious as a labourer by hitting himself in the head with a shovel, mastered stagecraft at law school by appearing in a skit called Synchronized Nude Male Modelling, and his first paid piece of writing was a Harlequin Romance-esque story involving a misdelivered letter ... and called The Male Delivery.
