In October 2016 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! But how can you, a good coach, stand out from the crowd of less competent peers? Let me offer you this workshop to explore the science of coaching and the ways in which it works. We start with concepts of neuroplasticity and the brain processes of creating new neuron pathways. Then we move to motivation and learn which type is the best. Finally, we finish with the discussion on brain activation states which we practice in a few short exercises. By understanding the new field of coaching psychology, you will become a better practitioner.
I am an affiliate member of the Institute of Coaching at McLean Hospital, the Harvard Medical School affiliate. I studied coaching psychology at Harvard Extension School.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Understand that neuroplasticity is the reason why people take long to learn new behaviors
  • Learn that the autonomous motivation is the most persistent type of motivation and that an Agile coach must strive for it
  • Learn about seven activation steps and the ways to stimulate brain’s creativity
  • Practice multiple reflection techniques during a coaching conversation
  • Learn practical behaviors: open monitoring (sensing), asking the right questions, providing rich reflections, engaging in relational flow, and being comfortable with generative moments
