Empowering Self-Organizing Teams: Coaching Skills


Successful Agile teams self-organize. This is easier said than done. Empowering teams to become self-organizing requires the use of Team Coaching Skills

• Leadership Skills guide you to become aware of who you are and how you conduct yourself in the team to influence other team members positively.

• Coaching Skills prepare you to engage in empowering relationships and interact with others in the team to help them learn and grow.

• Facilitation Skills help you understand interpersonal dynamics and team behaviours, and how to intervene in a team to cultivate self-organization.

In an Agile organization, anyone can contribute to the team’s develop by applying these skills. 

Module 2: Coaching Skills 

We are pleased to present a series of retreats where Agilists can meet and practice Team Coaching Skills together. 

The format is simple, you will learn some theory, you will practice and observe, and you will give and receive feedback from other practitioners. The second retreat will continue to focus on Basic Coaching Skills. 

It will help you clarify what a Servant Leadership attitude is and you will practice the four most important listening and questioning skills used in coaching conversations. Moments for gathering insights and feedback is an integral part of the training for participants as well as for organizers and we ask you to fill out a feedback form towards the end of the day. 

To ensure a supporting learning environment, the number of participants are limited. This event is organized and prepared by Agile Open Space and it will be facilitated by Louise Kold Taylor assisted by Jesús Méndez

Venue

Seedbox Technologies is holding the event at their amazing offices in Montreal, QC.
