Summit Keynote: Coaching Your Way to Leadership

There are perspectives that imply Agile coaching is for a small set of specialized agilists who serve to improve everyone else. Or that it’s a unique role that others, including managers and leaders, will find difficult to impossible to master. This talk intends to debunk those notions. Everyone has leadership potential and can rise to be a leader. And leaders must learn to effectively coach if they are to be successful.

In this workshop, Bob Galen will explore the nuance associated with Agile coaching to demystify it and encourage you to find your inner Agile coach in whatever leadership role you currently hold. He’ll share and explore the Agile Coaching Growth Wheel as a competency model for Agile coaching. Next, he explores the critical aspects of an Agile coaching mindset. And finally, he’ll give you a chance to practice having a coaching conversation or two.

Bob hopes to inspire you so that your inner Agile Coach emerges, grows, and shines.
