Easy Change vs. Hard Change (The Difference Every Coach MUST Know)

Special Regional International Coaching Week Event offered by ICF Northeast Chapters

Tuesday, May 18, 2021 from 6:00-7:30pm EST

CCE Units: 1.0 Core Competency, .5 Resource, 1.5 Total CCE

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.

Michael Bungay Stanier helps people be a force for change.

He’s best known for his book The Coaching Habit which has sold close to a million copies and has thousands of 5-star reviews online. His latest book The Advice Trap focuses on what it takes to tame your Advice Monster.

He founded Box of Crayons, a learning and development company that helps organizations move from advice-driven to curiosity-led. They’ve trained hundreds of thousands of managers to be more coach-like and their clients range from Microsoft to Gucci.

He left Australia about 30 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.

Balancing out these moments of success, he was banned from his high school graduation for “the balloon incident” … was sued by one of his Law School professors for defamation … and his first published piece of writing was a Harlequin Romance-esque story involving a misdelivered letter … and called The Male Delivery.
