Welcoming Shane Hastie from ICAgile to our Meetup with a Talk on Becoming an Agile Coach

We are proud to welcome Shane Hastie, the Director of Agile Learning Programs at ICAgile and InfoQ Culture Podcast host, to AWA on 7th March for an interactive session exploring agile coaching. Sign-up for free here!

 

Agile Coaching is a relatively new discipline and there is a lot of misunderstanding about why coaching is useful, what skills and competencies an agile coach needs to have, how they engage with individuals, teams and organisations and how to tell good coaches from mediocre ones.

As someone who wants to become a coach, what skills and competencies do you need to build? There are training courses, but they are not enough. Becoming an effective coach requires much more than book knowledge, it needs deliberate practice and experience working with individuals and teams.

As someone who is considering engaging a coach, what should you look out for and how do you establish the relationship to ensure the best possible outcomes. How do you create the environment where we can grow your own coaches inside an organisation, what is the pathway to competency for an aspiring coach?

 

In this interactive talk Shane explores these topics and relates it to his own journey to becoming a recognized expert coach through a competency-based assessment (ICE-AC).

 

OUTCOMES:

– Explain what agile coaching is and what it is not
– Describe some of the different competencies that a coach needs to have
– Experience using powerful questioning to conduct a coaching session
– Identify a pathway for building their own coaching expertise
