What we're about

Purpose

This is a group for ANYBODY willing to try their hand at professional coaching. This is YOUR group! The people that show up are the right people, period. You don't have to be an agilist to be here - our regulars range from master coaches to Agile Coaches to Scrum Masters to people who have never heard of Agile.

Professional Coaching Slant

We are coaches and agile coaches who love to provide professional coaching help to those who want to learn, practice, teach, or need coaching. We focus widely on the professional coaching competency (look at the ACI Agile Competency Framework https://www.agilecoachinginstitute.com/agile-coaching-resources/ ). The idea is that the sessions held here at least resemble the socratic, ontogonal coaching frameworks accepted by the International Coach Federation (ICF) and its competitors. We can do mentoring and consulting in appropriate doses, but again, the purpose of this meetup is to polish our core (professional) coaching skills.

Roles

Generally the following three roles crystalize in our meeting:

Coaches, clients (the ones getting coaching), and observers (those who turn off their cameras and observe the coaching sessions until we open up a 10 or so minute discussion window).

Meetup Structure

• Introduction (some type of check in);

• We elicit people willing to coach.

• People who have an area of life (work, home, etc.) that they need coaching on step up and become clients

• Code of conduct is shared and each client is paired with at least one coach.

• If we have multiple clients, multiple zoom rooms are opened and observers are also split evenly among them

• Around 10 min until the top of the hour the moderator brings everybody back into the main room to discuss - the group discusses the process (not the content, this is not ethical!) of the session(s) - we do not solve in this time slot

We adhere to the ICF ethical standards. Come as you are, but personal attacks, soliciting, and disruptive behavior are not welcome and the moderator reserves the right to remove anybody from the meeting at their discression.
