"Organizations are communities of human beings, not collections of human resources"
The McGill Organizational Development team has been using Henry Mintzberg's CoachingOurselves approach since 2009.
In CoachingOurselves small groups of 4-6 participants gather for a 90-minute peer-coaching session guided by one of over 100 CoachingOurselves modules. You can now use these modules to organize your own self-directed peer-coaching or as part of your department/unit event or offsite. McGill has an enterprise license so it does not cost you anything!
CoachingOurselves is an innovative coaching approach developed by Henry Mintzberg and Phil LeNir which offers over one hundred 90-minute guided discussion topics, including: The Rewards of Recognition, Analyzing Employee Performance, Enhancing Communication, 10 Ways to Release Change, S.W.O.T for Strategy and more!
CoachingOurselves allows you to:
- Engage with your peers or your team.
- Stimulate reflection on your day-to-day work experiences while sharing and learning with others.

“CoachingOurselves succeeds on two levels in a short timeframe: it provides managers an opportunity to acquire new knowledge applied to their own context and it also offers a space for making meaning and creating connections.”
