Abstract

In the Agile community, the term “coaching” gets bandied around almost as much as “Agile”. What do we mean by “coaching”, what are the core skills of an effective coach, what does good look like and how does it feel to coach and be coached? 
Back for a second time by popular demand, this session isn’t just a repeat of Monday’s session. For first time participants, they will experience the power of coaching while for those who wish to attend again, they will have the chance to deepen their coaching practice and learnings. 
Join us in this workshop to experience what being a coach means and discover where you are on your personal journey of continuous improvement.

I’m an Executive Agile Coach, Executive & Personal Coach and Play Researcher who combines business strategies with play to bring about positive organisational change. I’m an international speaker, and the creator of concepts such as Playmaking and Enterprise Gardening. I specialise in Agile adoption and organisational change. I’ve had a number of roles over the years, ranging from Java developer, to development manager, Agile consultant-coach and facilitator. I’m passionate about realising and increasing human potential through Systems Thinking, Real Options and team collaboration. I strive to build effective and meaningful teams by pragmatically applying Lean and Agile Values, Principles and Practices.
