Coaching Coaches in the Practice of Coaching
Agile Transformations and Agile Coaching go hand in hand. Large corporate transformations require large numbers of coaches and these are often sourced internally; sometimes from people with some Agile experience, often times not. This introduces a new aspect to the transformation: how do you support the coaches ? What goes into creating an effective container that grows effective coaches?
This presentation shares my experience from within Westpac, New Zealand in doing just that – supporting a coaching chapter of new coaches and crafting a journey with them. This allows each coach to explore what being a coach is all about, whilst supporting teams to deliver more value with more ease. We look at the evolution of coaches, what guard rails support autonomy, how visualisation and stand-up’s support the shift of coaches into exceptional performance, anchor practices like coaching strategies, and the concept of the practice of coaching as agility.
