Advanced bonus lessons on cultural change and high performance

You will learn step-by-step the practical and transformational strategies to create and support high-performance cultures; how to encourage innovative thinking, swift implementation of new ideas, and creative cultures; gain insights from positive psychology about building on your people’s strengths and character traits such as courage, perseverance, fairness and zest; and, how to coach individuals who feel overworked and tired, so that they can set boundaries, say “no” with grace, and feel empowered.

This program uniquely positions participants to deal adeptly with under-performance, avoid micro-management, coach people so they can focus on what’s really important, and successfully address bullying or harassing behaviour at work.


Hands-on intensive workshop

Make connections with other like-minded leaders and change agents. Immerse yourself in experiential action learning focused on the 8 core lessons and 4 real world coaching lessons underpinning the program.

Raise, explore and resolve in a safe environment the issues you face in bringing about change.


Live Master Coach demonstrations

Watch a Master Coach in action, demonstrating the techniques you are learning in the program. See and hear the impact on the people he coaches.

In the debriefs you’ll learn the step-by-step secrets to having a swift, rapport-filled and deep coaching conversation that leads to change.


Unlimited access to the Speed Coaching Membership Site and Community

Have you ever attended a workshop, been caught up in thinking about a particular point, and wished you could re-wind the tape, slow down, and absorb it in more detail? You can do exactly that in this program!

You have unlimited, free and exclusive access to the Speed Coaching Membership site, where you can see videos of all the program lessons, listen to audio downloads, watch bonus videos, and download any of the tools and templates.

You’ll be part of the Speed Coaching community where you can stay in touch with like-minded professionals bringing about positive change in the workplace.

What recent participants have said:

“Thanks so much, I can honestly say I can’t remember training that has been more valuable at both a professional and personal level.”

“I gained confidence, skills and knowledge. Bryan’s coaching demonstrations were so good – matter of fact, practical, demystified, empowering – a man of integrity. Mary is special, with a huge insight into people. It was so great to meet an intelligent, kind woman who isn’t aggressive but is empowered. A wonderful role model. The most useful aspects were values, filters on the world, the ‘set the frame’ questions – actually everything. I wouldn’t change anything. Really.”

“I gained great personal insight into values, filters on the world, overcoming barriers to change, and tools to work on issues later. The coaching demonstrations by Bryan O’Connor were really valuable, with great time allowance – they didn’t feel rushed and there were lots of opportunities afterwards to ask questions. I enjoyed the opportunity to participate in a coaching demonstration. Mary is a great facilitator. I loved the rapport between you and Bryan. Provided lots of examples to take away. Two days was really needed, and the timing was great.”

“ A great workshop. I gained relatable skills for the workplace – I can’t wait to implement and share with other leaders. It was great to witness coaching in action in the coaching demonstrations. Bryan is clearly a master of the skills we learned. Mary is an extremely gifted facilitator – she is so easy to engage with and her real-life examples are great. The most useful aspects were the foundation skills (rapport/ questioning techniques etc) that will be so beneficial in the ‘real life’ coaching roles.”
