Henry Mintzberg’s CoachingOurselves and ManageMagazine have Initiated a Co-Creative Partnership

Phil LeNir and Henry Mintzberg founded CoachingOurselves in 2007 to bring Mintzberg’s approach to management education directly into the workplace.

Henry MintzbergThrough peer-coaching programs, CoachingOurselves helps organizations become better places for everyone, creating and strengthening the sense of community inside the organization and enabling them to support the communities in which they operate.

The Mintzberg approach is in brief one that emphasizes action-learning, where practicing managers learn from their own insights and experiences.

The CoachingOurselves – ManageMagazine Co-Creative Partnership Increases our Positive Impact Potential

At ManageMagazine we are delighted to have initiated a Co-Creative Partnership with Henry Mintzberg’s CoachingOurselves for several reasons.

The partnership paves the way for one of our main initial wishes: we want to unite people across sectors and professions for networking and discussions of mutual challenges in order to improve learning, leadership and management practices. It is thrilling to make this happen through the Henry Mintzberg Program.

In many ways, the aims of CoachingOurselves and ManageMagazine are similar – wanting to facilitate better leadership and management to improve organizations, communities, and societies at large.

While we have different approaches to realizing these aims, this is essentially also the foundation for the beauty of partnerships. We can approach the same challenges from different angles for broader and deeper impact. In other words, this partnership allows us to reach further and increase our impact as we can work simultaneously on, and from, several places and platforms.

As the founder of a global magazine, I increasingly believe that partnerships are the way forward when it comes to making real-life positive changes that reach far and scratch beyond any surfaces.
