Leadership Coaching Dojo: A Chance to Practice What You Preach
A recent Harvard Business Review article referenced a survey in which 70 percent of leaders reported being uncomfortable with employee conversations. And these were simple conversations—not crucial or pivotal conversations. It is no surprise that most leaders really struggle as they engage in difficult conversations such as individual employee or team performance improvement discussions or those challenging leadership assumptions. Bob Galen says that these are the very conversations you need to have as you envision, engage, and guide your teams through the changes toward a successful agile adoption. Explore some useful tools and frameworks for your coaching conversational use—the Coaching Stance, Coaching Canvas, and Crucial Conversation. More importantly, use the Dojo format that gives you a chance to practice your conversations across a wide variety of agile transformation scenarios. Join Bob to practice and refine your situational leadership coaching skills.
