About Michael Bungay Stanier:
Michael Bungay Stanier is the founder and Senior Partner of Box
of Crayons, a company that helps organizations all over the world
do less Good Work and more Great Work.
Box of Crayons are best known for their coaching programs that
help time-crunched managers coach in 10 minutes or less.
Michael left Australia 22 years ago to be a Rhodes Scholar at
Oxford University, where his only significant achievement was
falling in love with a Canadian… which is why he now lives in
Toronto, having spent time in London and Boston.
He has written a number of books. The best known with almost
100,000 copies sold is Do More Great Work.
But the one he’s proudest of is End Malaria, a collection of essays
on Great Work from leading thinkers which raised $400,000 for
Malaria No More.
Michael was also the first Canadian Coach of the Year, which is
pretty good for an Australian.
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 Mills & Boone short story
called “The Male Delivery”.
Michael wrote this introduction himself, so you should take it all
with a pinch of salt.
