    Rajesh Mathur / Alexandra Stokes - Are Agile coaches crossing the line? A panel discussion about Coaching & Counselling.

    45 Mins
    Panel
    Intermediate

    Agile coaches are mostly not qualified in counselling and therapy.

    Knowingly, mistakenly or ignorantly, some coaches divert their coaching instances to personal conversations as if they were therapists. Counselling is a skill which requires practice, experience and certification.

    It also has regulatory boundaries. While coaching and counselling are different, there is an overlap. Several coaching approaches had their roots in therapy: e.g. Solutions Focus Coaching came from Brief Therapy, Non-Violent Communication from Marshall Rosenberg (via Carl Rogers).

    As coaches, it is imperative to have self-awareness that we do not cross the line in explore in unchartered territories of counselling. Join this panel to learn more about counselling and coaching.

    Ed O'Shaughnessy / Alexandra Stokes - The Good, Bad & Ugly: what we've learned in 10 years of scaling agile -- a panel discussion

    45 Mins
    Panel
    Intermediate

    Agile is now all grown up and is pretty much the de facto way of working for most teams, but it's proven to be a challenge for adoption at scale. Over the last ten years or so there has been a lot of trial and error figuring out how to break through the cultural barriers, political resistance and technical hurdles that large organisations present. This panel of luminaries (!) brings a wealth of experience helping many different types of organisations transform themselves to be fit for purpose in the 21st century. Come along to hear their stories, some good, some bad and probably a few ugly ones!

    PLEASE NOTE: this session will be recorded live by The Weekly Reboot podcast and made available for public consumption. Your attendance will be taken as acceptance to being recorded and publicly broadcast.
