      Advanced Agile Coaching - Damon Poole & Gillian Lee

      This is a one-of-a-kind workshop that goes beyond what is typically offered in Agile Coaching workshops such as the ICP-ACC or A-CSM, introducing a framework called “Coaching Triggers”. Coaching triggers help you stay in a pure coaching mode, remain neutral, and stay oriented to your coachee’s agenda; and enable your coachee to be the best problem solver they can be. Coaching triggers are pairs of circumstances and corresponding techniques that help to identify how we can best help the coachee move forward. The triggers apply to 1-1 coaching as well as team and organizational coaching. WORKSHOP OUTLINE For each technique we will: cover the circumstances that indicate the use of the technique, learn the application and the associated “powerful questions,” practice with illustrative examples from the instructors, and then practice in pairs with fellow participants. INTERRUPTING – interrupting gracefully is an important part of coaching. Learn techniques for skillfully pausing the coachee as part of using a trigger. ORIENTING PART 1 – coachees can get off-track from their stated session purpose. Orienting is a technique for helping the coachee stay on track without unintentionally taking away their control of the session. SPECTATING – you may feel the need to ask the coachee to pause, slow down, or repeat information. This can potentially sidetrack the coachee. See how to overcome this need in order to follow along with the coachee wherever their problem solving thought process may lead. INTUITION – when an insight comes to us that would have turned out to have value for the coachee and we don’t offer it, that's a shame. Likewise, presenting our intuition as fact may lead our coachee astray. Learn how to leverage your intuition to your coachee's advantage. RELEASING – if there is something on the coachee’s mind that is getting in the way of working on their main concern, releasing it may help. ORIENTING PART 2 – discover how to detect opportunities below the surface, build awareness of them in the coachee, and help the coachee stay oriented to their own big picture. CLARIFYING – if something the coachee is saying doesn’t make sense to you, having the coachee back up and take a look at what they are saying may help them uncover a hidden assumption or blindspot. SPLITTING – a coaching application of user story splitting concepts to issues and goals. SUMMARIZING – asking for a summary can help a coachee move out of endless examples, storytelling, or getting lost “in the weeds.” It can also help to differentiate between related items and unrelated items. REDIRECTING - learn the three parts of redirecting a direct request such as “what do you think I should do” back into a pure coaching conversation. HIGHLIGHTING – coachees very often mention options without any awareness they are options. Discover how to detect and raise awareness of these “invisible” options. RE-EVALUATING – the coachee may get stuck on a mental model that isn’t serving them. Learn how to detect the different forms of mental models and how to help the coachee brainstorm and apply a mental model that better serves their needs.
