Coaching for Commitment: Secrets of Coaches Who Make Change Stick

Managers: Is your company sinking time and  money into Agile coaching without seeing the long term results you’re craving?

Coaches: are your teams excited to adopt new practices while working with you, only to slip back into old habits once your attention is elsewhere?

Companies are sinking millions of dollars and countless hours into agile transformation, often with great short-term success. But if the change doesn’t stick with a team over the long term the investment is wasted.

In this workshop, you’ll learn the surprising reasons why most people avoid change, even when it is in their best interest. You’ll also gain tools to expose hidden blocks to adopting new ideas and learn how the best coaches employ neuroscience to make change sticky. 

The workshop will include practice sessions so you know exactly how to implement these ideas when you’re back in the office.
