About this ebook

A self-coaching book that helps you find challenging, fulfilling, and impactful work “in a manner similar to What Color Is Your Parachute?” (Seattle Pi).

When you’re up to your eyeballs answering emails, returning phone calls, attending meetings, and scrambling to get that project done, you can turn to this inspirational, motivating, and at times playful book for invaluable guidance. In fifteen exercises, Do More Great Work shows how you can finally do more of the work that pushes you forward, stretches your creativity, and truly satisfies you.

The exercises are “maps”—brilliantly simple visual tools that help you find, start, and sustain Great Work, revealing how to:
  • Find clues to your own Great Work—they’re all around you
  • Locate the sweet spot between what you want to do and what your organization wants you to do
  • Generate new ideas and possibilities quickly
  • Best manage your overwhelming workload
  • Double the likelihood that you’ll do what you want to do

All it takes is ten minutes a day, a pencil, and a willingness to change. Do More Great Work will not only help you identify what the Great Work of your life is, it will tell you how to do it.

“Great work really does come in small packages! This little book is a dynamo of ‘great work truths.’” —Marshall Goldsmith, #1 New York Times–bestselling author of Triggers

“[Stanier] has an ability to shake our tree and make us more conscious and responsible. And the best part—he makes it easy and fun.” —David Allen, New York Times–bestselling author of Getting Things Done

Michael Bungay Stanier

George Orwell said, “An autobiography is only to be trusted when it reveals something disgraceful.” In that vein, Michael was banned from his high school graduation for “the balloon incident”, was sued by one of his Law School lecturers for defamation, and managed to give himself a concussion while digging a hole as a labourer...Luckily, there’s also been some upside. He is the author of a number of books, and the one he is best known for with 90,000 copies sold is Do More Great Work. However, the one he’s proudest of is End Malaria, a collection of articles about Great Work from thought leaders that’s raised about $400,000 for Malaria No More and reached #2 on Amazon.com.Michael also organized the Great Work MBA, a virtual conference featuring 30 world class speakers and which had more than 10,000 registered participants.All of this is done as founder and Senior Partner of Box of Crayons, a company that helps organizations do less Good Work and more Great Work. Their focus is on helping time-crunched managers coach in 10 minutes or less, and their Fortune 500 clients include TD Bank, Kraft, Gartner and VMWare.Michael is a well-regarded speaker, and as well as speaking to organizations he regularly keynotes at conferences such as HRPA, SHRM, CSTD, the Evanta HR Leadership series and The Conference Board of Canada. He’s known for sessions that are highly engaging, interactive and entertaining. And for his colourful Box of Crayons socks.Before Box of Crayons, Michael spent time inventing products and services as part of an innovation agency, and working as a management consultant on large scale change, where amongst other things he wrote the global vision for GlaxoSmithKline.Michael was a Rhodes Scholar and the first Canadian Coach of the Year.
