Most of the organizations focus on adherence to frameworks, Agile practices, restructuring of teams & roles as part of Agile Transformation with minimal focus on cultural transformation. Even the very few organizations that do focus on Cultural transformation focus primarily on practices and policies than on mindset, values and purpose.

Every organization that is looking to transform has an existing culture that is driven by its core values, beliefs and undefined practices. This defines how people operate on a day to day basis, how the transformation exercise is kicked off and the way it evolves. However, for the transformation to be successful, it is imperative that the transformation team Identifies & outlines the existing culture and is able to define the cultural aspects that need to change for it to be an Agile Organization. This needs clear understanding of various aspects of organizational culture, leadership agility levels, what can be done to identify the current culture and what is needed to be able to define the target state.

The intent of this workshop (No PPT) is to get the audience to understand the importance of cultural transformation, the aspects that one needs to focus on and also the means needed to define the organizational culture than it defining the individual.

The hands-on interactive session will introduce the audience to the Cultural Iceberg, Language, Habits and Mindset template to be able to clearly distinguish the need for focusing on Organizational culture, Leadership Agility Levels and the active involvement of the C-suite and Senior Leadership in defining the culture needed in the new ways of working.

      Prashant Shinde / Ashish Kumar - Are You Coaching the Person or the Problem? #AnArtOfAgileCoaching

      90 Mins
      Hands on Session

      When we are on the floor & wearing the coaching hat - we are dealing with 3 things -

      1. Ourself (Coach himself)
      2. Person (Coachee)
      3. Problem

      According to Chad W. Hall, there are also three levels of coaching which he describes in Coach The Person Not The Problem.

      1. Beginner: Coach the Problem
      2. Better: Coach the Problem through the Person
      3. Transformational: Coach the Person for Internal Change

      It is very important to understand the 3 levels of coaching. Many of us we operate at level 1.

      We will share some recent practical & experential examples/learnings which emphasizes more on coaching at level 2 & 3.

      Note - Inspired from the book "Coach the Person Not the Problem: A Simple Guide to Coaching for Transformation - By Chad Hall"
