Doing Great Work

Michael Bungay Stanier is obsessed with one particular distinction: the difference between good work and great work. Why do so many of us spend most of our time doing work that’s just okay when we could be doing work that is profound – work that “makes a dent in the universe”?

Using neuroscience, personal stories and his trademark sense of humour, Michael teaches us how to do more great work, so that we can have more impact, express more of our genius and most importantly, have more fun.

How Letting Go Leads To Coaching Mastery

What are the gateways to coaching mastery? What principles can we use that open up the space, so something bigger than us can come through. Something that fundamentally changes the coaching conversation.

Karen Kimsey-House says one such principle is letting go of our need to “get it right”. When we can drop beneath the need for results, or “being a good coach”, we can relax into the spaciousness of what’s really present.

Your Host

Joel Monk

I’m a coach, trainer and entrepreneur.

Recently I saw on a deeper level how all the things in my life orient around cultivating a sense of ‘aliveness’. By this I mean – what is it to be awake and fully expressed in this moment? How can I metabolize the conditioning that binds me so that I can wake up into deeper expressions of authentic, embodied human presence?

I’m deeply committed to awakening the leader that lives in all of us. We’re all being invited to align with what wants to live through us and from here we can truly serve the world with our work.
