The History of the Inner Game
Starting in the mid-1970s many corporate leaders and managers recognized the implications of Inner Game concepts and models for facilitating desired changes in the workplace.
One of Tim Gallwey’s first long-term clients was AT&T. In the early 1980s they were faced with the challenge of changing the mindset of the largest company in the US from the “bell shaped head” of monopolistic thinking to the mindset of a competitive, market-driven, entrepreneurial company.
Not long after, Tim Gallwey was asked to help IBM to change its prevailing corporate attitude of “we know it all” to that of a learning and coaching organization. Inner Game methods were then put to use in Apple Computer Company’s Leadership Development program. And in the 1990s Inner Game methods were used to train most of the top-level managers of The Coca-Cola Company in how to coach and develop the skills of their work teams, and eventually to move towards becoming a learning organization.
