My journey as an agile coach has been a great learning experience.

In this session i intend to share some key learnings that contribute to effective coaching.

I have aggregated my presentation under the following topics:

  • Coaching with Compassion vs coaching for compliance - why it is important to understand the team's needs instead of running the coach's transformation agenda. How do we involve teams in the transformation?
  • The coach’s mindset defines his/ her coaching - Many times coaches are not able to identify team problems due to their own biases. How can a coach be aware of such biases and overcome them?
  • Making your coaching visible - A common failure in transformations is that coaches are unable to make their progress visible. We will look at some interesting techniques to make  coaching progress visible
  • Involving stakeholders -How do we involve stakeholders other that the teams? why is it important?
  • Coach for a coach - Every coach needs a mentor . How do we effectively utilize mentors? what role do they play in a coach's growth?
  • Celebrating success - We often fail to talk about our successes and acknowledge teams. How did we do this in our organization?

In each topic i will be sharing my experience, learnings and techniques that i used to overcome challenges.

      Hi Jerry and TV, 

      I am working on the deck and it will take some time for me to complete it. I am also using images from my coaching and i would need approvals before i can share it.Would it help if i provide you with the detailed break-up of the session?

      I have also written to the organizers of the Regional Scrum gathering for some video footage of the talk. I'll share it with you if it is available.

      Best Regards,

      Shiva

        Shiva - I see some interesting ideas in your deck, but I am still missing the examples from your experience. For example, a real-life problem that you faced, what did you do to resolve it, and why, adn what was the outcome.

          Hi TV,

          i have uploaded only the outline of my session. i will be presenting the ideas through examples from my coaching experience. i intend to utilize a lot of images from work to illustrate the concepts.This will also make it easier for the audience to understand my ideas.

          It will not be possible for me to add all the information into the session outline. Please let me know if you are looking for any other specific information, i'll try to provide you with the same.

          Best Regards,

          Shiva
