Tales of Dojo Coaching—Insights for All
In the agile space, do you ever wonder why we use words such as "transformation" and "journey"? It's because it's really freaking hard. As an Agile coach, there are days when you move a group one step forward only to realize that they've fallen two steps back. You are part practitioner and part therapist. You experience frequent memory lapses like "I could've sworn we've worked on this anti-pattern before." Or, did you? What day is it again? Now, imagine throwing gasoline on that by condensing a team's journey into six weeks. What breakthroughs might emerge when we accelerate the journey using hands-on, intensive coaching? Well, no need to imagine this six-week mania because it's a real thing called dojo coaching. Join Jess Brock, author of The Dojo Coach's Pocket Guide, as she shares her lessons and insights that can only be gained from getting down into the weeds with dozens of teams. This talk is not limited to dojo coaches! Any coach can find value in these insightful and action-driven stories of a humble dojo coach just trying to do some good in the world.
