I'm a middle aged software geek who now works in organizational change and leadership development. I partnered with professor Henry Mintzberg of McGill University on the CoachingOurselves project and Rebalancing Society project.

Phil LeNir is president of CoachingOurselves but thinks he is still just an electrical engineer working on the incredibly complex challenge of helping organizations develop their leaders. He co-founded CoachingOurselves with Henry Mintzberg after adapting Henry’s ideas on management education for use directly in his place of work.
Phil LeNir has a Masters in International Management and a Bachelors in Electrical Engineering from McGill University in Montreal. Prior to CoachingOurselves, Phil held senior management positions in software firms specializing in speech recognition during which he developed a patent in speaker verification systems. Phil has authored numerous articles on leadership development and even one on a novel multithreaded computer architecture. He wrote a book on social and informal learning for management development which, much to Phil’s surprise, has done well in Japan.
