Agile Coaching has more nuances and involves more competences than the discipline of Professional Coaching. To sucessfully lead business transformations, an Agile Coach has to navigate these competences easily and contextually. As Agile Coaches, we support leadership and their teams through their agile journeys and growth, using different methods and tools: teaching frameworks and practices (trainer), sharing our experience and learning (mentoring), asking insightful questions that help teams figure out ideas and solutions on their own (coaching), advising them on the path to take at a roadblock, where the need arises (consulting) and more.
In this workshop, PST Lachlan Heaseman will teach you the skills needed to successfully coach an organisation through their agile journey to get teams, organisations, and managers to change the way they work. Using scenario based learning from real-life examples, he’ll show you how to make change “sticky” by using case conceptualisation, psychology, and the 8 stances of agile coaching.
- Defining coaching: Applying the International Coaching Federation (ICF) framework to an agile and business transformation context.
- Defining context using the Case Conceptualisation technique.
- Culture and change: Using models for change to help coach executive and stakeholders.
- Coaching the organisation: Establishing guardrails, reinforcing consistency, and coaching teams.
- Using agile coaching stances by understanding the context and recognising the model to apply: coach, trainer, mentor, change agent, consultant and counsellor.
