An Agile Coaching Practicum in 360 degrees

Monday, November 15, 2021 - 8:30am to 12:00pm

Let’s face it, agile coaching isn’t for the timid or faint of heart. In most companies, it’s an incredibly challenging and nuanced role. And an important part of it is having the ability to coach in 360 degrees: downward—across your teams, outward – across managers and peers, and upward—towards those pesky leaders. Oh, and did we say that virtually EVERYONE is an agile coach? In this workshop, join Bob Galen as he share tools and experiences coaching in all directions. He will review three different coaching models from the X-Wing, to Powerful Questions, to 9-Stances, to the Agile Coaching...

The Transformation Mindset: A Leader's Guide to Embracing Agile

New
Tuesday, November 16, 2021 - 1:00pm to 4:30pm

Many leaders want to transform their organization to become more agile, adaptive, and responsive to the market. However, most do not deeply understand how to lead their organization through such a massive change.
