    Hi Eric - I'm curious why you submitted this to the 101 track?  It seems more suited to the technical track.

      Hi Lynn,

      Since this walks through basics of the different scaled frameworks, showing how a tool can be used.  This is not about the tool, but how you can fit frameworks into tools that may not explicitly support them.  It's not about coding practices or anything like that, but about Managing Scaled projects.  If that falls into Technical I can change that.

    Sam Falco / Becky Hartman - Coaching Around Resistance: Building Relationships using Humble Inquiry

    120 Mins
    Workshop
    Intermediate

    When coaches encounter resistance, we often treat it as a phenomenon to be overcome, confronted, or defeated. But resistance arises from emotional reactions to difficult change. Emotions can’t be argued away or dispelled with psychological force. Instead of meeting resistance head-on, clever coaches will build healthy, trust relationships with the people they are coaching.

    That requires coaches to understand the nature of existing relationships and work to strengthen them. Those relationships then become safe places for people to let down their guard and embrace change.

    Relationships are best built and deepened through a technique pioneered by Edgar Schein called “humble inquiry.” Humble inquiry places the focus not on what help coaches have to offer, but on the help that clients want and need.

    Alignment to a shared vision is necessary to achieve the outcomes you desire in your business. On top of this, engaged autonomous teams must be able to execute. In a scaled agile organization, this is crucial for success. In this interactive talk, I help you understand this in more detail and we walk through some fun exercises and discussions to learn how to create alignment across teams at multiple levels in your organization using OKRs.
