The Coaching Stance, May 8-9 2014
Michael Spayd and David Darst enthusiastically invite you to deepen your knowledge as a professional coach. In this course you will be steeped in the skills and mind sets of professional coaching while being firmly grounded in our Agile context. Everything is 100% applicable to your real world situation. You will learn and practice, practice, practice throughout the course. You will walk away from this course with your “personal coaching improvement backlogs.”
Who this course is for
This course is meant for ScrumMasters, agile coaches, project
managers in transition to agile and managers of agile teams
Learning outcomes for this course
Just like with the Coaching Agile Teams course, by the end of this course you’ll walk away with your personal coaching improvement backlog – a tangible plan you can use to thoughtfully improve your coaching when you’re back in your daily circumstances. We use agile scenarios throughout the class allowing you to craft powerful ways to address the real world challenges you face. You’ll also have many new things to try and you will probably depart with a few provocative ideas to chew on (in fact, maybe wrangle with for a while). All of this adds up to your ability to become the excellent agile coach your teams and organizations need.
