Michael Bungay Stanier
Champion for Great Work | Manager Development Expert
Your organization is set up to do Good Work–solid, reliant, efficient, work that delivers the next quarter’s numbers. That’s important. But it’s not enough. Michael Bungay Stanier knows that for organizations to continue to thrive and succeed, the people and teams in those organizations need to do more Great Work: the work that has impact, the work that has meaning, the work that makes a difference.
Michael and his company Box of Crayons have worked with organizations around the world to help them do more of the stuff that matters…and less of the other stuff. His speeches are highly practical, interactive, and a good deal of fun. Participants leave focused and committed to do more Great Work…and with an action plan to help them do just that.
Michael’s programs focus on practical coaching skills for time crunched managers. Working with Fortune 1000 organizations and teams around the world, managers and leaders gain “next day ready” skills that help drive engagement, resilience, and innovation.
Prior to founding Box of Crayons, Michael held senior positions in the corporate, agency, and consulting worlds within the UK, the USA, and Canada. He is the author of a number of bestselling books, including Do More Great Work: Stop the Busywork and Start the Work that Matters. He holds a Masters of Philosophy from Oxford University where he was a Rhodes Scholar, as well as Law and Arts degrees with the highest honours from the Australian National University.
