On Saturday 17th November 2018, SUGSA will be hosting a Coaching Day in Cape Town. The day will be facilitated by two amazing coaches: Pavel Dabrytski and Gill Baronetti.
Our intention with the Coaching Day is to provide attendees an opportunity to learn and practice practical coaching skills. Participants will be given the chance to practice in a safe space as well as receive feedback on the day from the facilitator and other participants.
This day is aimed at scrum masters, agile coaches or any agile team members who currently are or want to move into a coaching role. This is an amazing opportunity that shouldn’t be missed.
1. Coaching Psychology – Basics of Coaching Conversation
by Pavel Dabrytski
Recently I received a call, “Hey dude, I don’t know nothing about Agile, but I need to become an Agile coach a-s-a-p – my company just got a new contract.” I laughed for a second, explained that it takes a bit longer than a week to learn to coach, and wished him luck. I also knew that, shortly, he would be walking into his customer’s office in this new role.
Agile Coach is the new black! People forgot the true meaning of the word coaching, and, today, it is hard for clients to differentiate between a good practitioner and a bad one.
I offer this workshop to explore the science of coaching and the ways in which it works. We discuss open-ended enquiry, listening, reflections, and coaching arc – bringing it all together into practice. By understanding the new field of coaching psychology, you will become a better Agile practitioner.
2. A Competency Framework for the Agile Coach
by Gill Baronetti
Coaching is not the only thing an Agile Coach does. Far from it. There are many facets to the Agile Coach’s role and they are all equally important.
In this practical, experiential workshop you’ll learn about the 8 facets of the Agile coaching competency framework, what is entailed and what skills are required for each.
It will help point any aspiring Agile Coach towards which areas they need to focus on and/or develop.
3. Open Space
In this session we will open the space to all attendees and create a safe, informal and collaborative environment where all are welcome to present questions to explore, experiences to share, ideas to present, or conversations to start. We will build a very informal agenda of topics based on the questions, experiences, ideas, and conversations. The group will then self organise to structure the session how they deem best based on the agenda and all are free to choose to participate in the parts of the session that they feel are most valuable to them.
About Gill and Pavel
Please note: The intended audience of the coaching day is agile minded people who have had a reasonable amount of experience doing practical coaching or training.
