The speed and success of Agile adoption depends somewhat on Agile knowledge and expertise, but it’s far more dependent on how rapidly people can adopt new patterns of behavior. The rapidly-growing discipline of professional agile coaching specifically addresses this issue. Professional Coaching for Agilists is for all agile practitioners who want to add Professional Coaching to their toolkits. Leading Agile coaches Damon Poole and Gillian Lee address all aspects of professional agile coaching, from coaching agreements through accountability. Their methodology-independent guidance can help you succeed as a coach in any environment, at all levels: individual, team, and organizational.
Poole and Lee begin by introducing the discipline of professional agile coaching and showing agilists how to quickly start acting as professional coaches in agile environments. They introduce a powerful new “Coaching Triggers” framework for learning and applying Professional Coaching, presenting each trigger with detailed real-life examples, appropriate questions for eliciting insight and promoting change, and practical exercises for your work and personal life. Coverage includes:
  • The essentials and foundations of professional coaching for agile practitioners, managers, and team members
  • The coach’s role, and when coaching is and isn’t appropriate
  • Asking questions that stop people in their tracks
  • The coaching engagement, from start to finish
  • Tailoring your coaching to each individual
  • Helping people, teams, and organizations discover their lived values, goals, and strengths
  • Discovering areas for self-improvement, learning, and growth
  • Making coaching a natural extension of who you are
  • Applying coaching to teams, groups, and organizations
  • Using Scrum, Kanban, and other agile methods as professional coaching tools
