Just Coaching ...

Agile Coaching Fishbowl

At this meet up, everyone will get involved. Any topic can be explored, any question asked.

We'll use the fishbowl format. Several of the speakers will start in the fishbowl (a semi-circle of chairs where one and only one chair is always free). 

We then submit questions around coaching and all join in on the 'fishbowl' discussion. Only the people in the fishbowl can talk, but anyone in the audience can join the conversation (by forcing one of the speakers to step out of the fishbowl).

We'll time box all discussions to five minutes, with the audience voting as to whether the question deserves another five minutes in the fishbowl.

What puzzles you? 

What do you want to know about how others are confronting similar challenges? 

Please show up with your coaching question ready to toss into the fishbowl. And as a community that learns from the successes and challenges of others we know that you'll be prepared to step into the fishbowl and share your experiences.


The meet up will begin at 5:30 pm with networking, food and beverages.

The presentation is from 6:00 to 7:00 pm.

We'll conclude with a wrap up of the discussions and learnings that we achieved.

    Bill, thank you for organizing this event. I got so much useful information to help me with next steps and what I need to be concentrating on. A big thanks also to the coaches and everyone who participated to make this such an interesting and fun discussion. I look forward to next time. Thanks again everyone!

    Hey all, a couple of items:

    1) We will be meeting at 550 West Washington instead of 20 South Wacker. Security in the lobby will provide appropriate directions.

    2) Come prepared with any an all questions that you have about coaching (extensible to agile value and principles).
