Henry Mintzberg’s reflective management mindset to serve as the cornerstone of the educational design for Evenko’s APEX 2016 business conference on February 24th at the Bell Centre. CoachingOurselves—a Henry Mintzberg Program and the Desautels Faculty of Management at McGill University will collaborate to create a unique training experience that will bring peer coaching to Quebec’s business community.

Don’t miss valuable reflections from leaders like Gretzky and Goldsmith!

Evenko’s upcoming APEX 2016 conference is a bilingual business training experience, which will be held on February 24th 2016 at the Bell Centre. For one day, on one stage, 12 of the world’s leaders will be brought together for a training experience like no other.

With the premise, that managing becomes a "mindless" exercise when the meaning from experiences is ignored, Henry Mintzberg, Cleghorn Professor of Management Studies at McGill University, explains that reflection is the "suspended space" between the experience and the reasons behind it. This reflective mindset, developed by Henry Mintzberg, will serve as the cornerstone of the educational design for APEX 2016.

Founded in 2007 by Henry Mintzberg and Phil LeNir, CoachingOurselves is the world leader in peer coaching. The methodology for management development, based on Mintzberg's reflective learning pedagogy, builds community, stimulates the exchange of perspectives and encourages team cohesion. CoachingOurselves has a library of over 80 discussion modules used by over 20,000 managers in 8 languages around the world. These modules will serve as a springboard to engage participants and APEX2016 speakers through reflective questioning. As opposed to typical events, at APEX2016, participants will reflect and discuss among themselves in small cohorts while the guest speakers do the same, all leveraging CoachingOurselves peer coaching modules. Speakers will then share their introspective dialog enabling a whole new level of learning.

This is the opportunity to experience the CoachingOurselves peer coaching methodology at its most transformative.

The full details on APEX2016 and event registration can be found online at The conference will be held on Wednesday, February 24th, 2016 at the Bell Centre. Confirmed speakers include Wayne Gretzky, Lise Watier, Scotty Bowman, Patricia McCord, Marshall Goldsmith, and many others.

About CoachingOurselves: CoachingOurselves International Inc. provides a library of 80 modules, each of which guides managers to learn from and coach each other during 90-minute reflective discussions. The modules are grouped in a series to create leadership programs for organizations to develop themselves using Mintzberg's peer coaching methodology.
