Bring your skills to the next level

As an Agile Coach, a ScrumMaster, Consultant, or Leader in your organization, your job includes helping people work more effectively. Sometimes that means directly helping individuals and teams. But often, your work involves solving problems—and engaging other people to solve problems— people beyond your team.

You may have no authority to insist those people listen or do, yet managers and executives expect organization-wide results from your activities.

Many executives see clearly how teams should change, but don’t see how the environment or their own actions impact teams. Handing those executives an impediment list isn’t a winning strategy.

In our Coaching Beyond the Team workshop, you will learn the arc of a helping relationship – Center-Enter-Turn. You’ll discover ways to establish credibility and rapport to influence and coach beyond the team. You’ll learn how to use a range of diagramming and thinking techniques to create understanding and share data in a way that enables others to engage and take action.

 

Who is the CBTT workshop for?

This course is meant for Scrum Masters, agile coaches, project managers, managers of agile teams and leaders in your organisation.

You’ll learn techniques for understanding the real problem. New analysis tools will reveal the real company, which bears little resemblance to the chart hanging on the wall. Experiential exercises will make this part of your coaching DNA.

 

Course Objectives

Through simulations and small group activities, we will explore common organisational patterns and dynamics. Through discussion and practice, you’ll learn tools that will help you communicate the changes needed to unleash productivity.

About Esther and Don

Esther Derby
Esther Derby
I started my career as a programmer, and over the years I’ve worn many hats, including business owner, internal consultant and manager. From all these perspectives, one thing became clear: our level of individual, team and company success was deeply impacted by our work environment and organizational dynamics. As a result, I have spent the last twenty-five years helping companies design their environment, culture, and human dynamics for optimum success. I’ve written over 100 articles, and co-authored two books–Agile Retrospectives: Making Good Teams Great and Behind Closed Doors: Secrets of Great Management.
