Scaling Your Way to an Agile Coaching Practicum
Let’s face it, agile coaching isn’t for the timid or faint of heart. In most companies, it’s an incredibly challenging and nuanced role. And an important part of it is having the ability to coach in 360 degrees: downward—across your teams, outward – across managers and peers, and upward—towards those pesky leaders. Oh, and did we say that virtually EVERYONE is an agile coach? In this workshop, join Mary Thorn and Bob Galen as they share tools and experiences coaching in all directions. They will review three different coaching models from the X-Wing, to Powerful Questions, to 9-Stances, to the Agile Coaching Growth Wheel. Then, they will explore aspects of Crucial Conversations and Radical Candor. All in an effort to quickly build your coaching toolbox and chops. But then, we do something even more exciting. You’ll spend ~50% of the workshop doing something wonderful. That is COACHING. We’ll break up into 3-person coaching dojo’s and you’ll get a chance to sharpen your saw with lots of practice using our scenarios or your own. You’ll leave this workshop with new tools, insights, and practical skills towards becoming a better 360 degree coach.
