The Coaching Habit +

Develop and maintain your coaching mindset.

When you build your ability to think like a coach, coaching ceases to be a one-off formal event and instead becomes a part of your everyday repertoire. The Coaching Habit is an innovative, award-winning program that introduces coaching skills for managers, brought to you by Box of Crayons and Rotman Executive Programs.

We know your schedule is packed. The Coaching Habit is designed to help you defeat your inner advice monster so you can say less, ask more, and change the way you lead forever. To make sure the habit sticks, we deliver tools and accountability systems, as well as a full half day of practice on-site at Rotman.

In this newly expanded full day version, we start the session with the tools and techniques of coaching and then build on these fundamentals to focus on practice: applying next-day ready tools with real people so when you return to the office you can increase your team’s focus, engagement, and impact.

Only practice, done in pairs or triads, can get the seven Core Questions ingrained into your management style. During the practice session you’ll work through real-life business challenges in small groups. After the workshop, we establish a 108-day follow-up process to help embed your new tools, skills, and behaviours, including:

  • Access to a comprehensive Booster Shot™ learning portal
  • An action plan and commitment to practice for 90 days
  • An accountability support system
  • A 108-day sustainment tool to help embed new behaviours.
