Join Agile757 for the July Meetup! As Agile Practitioners we're not just Scrum Masters, Product Owners, or team members, we're also servant leaders, continuous improvement mavens and coaches! Come hear Braz Brandt, Agile Coach, help us navigate the coaching space.

Topic: Stop Coachsplaining - Finding Your Coaching Stance

As Agile Coaches we straddle the fine line between "expert" and "coach". We work tirelessly to create the right environment and ask the best questions to unlock the goodness in those around us. Sometimes, though, we get asked a question or to facilitate something and we forget. We get excited. We get on a roll and jump into expert mode and forget to come back up for air.
We start "Coachsplaining".
In this workshop, we will learn about the different stances we take when we're coaching, and discover how to probe continuously to ensure we are taking the appropriate stance in every interaction.
