"Using games, consensus, hints, simulations, suggestions, gathering in circles, suggested readings, more hints, behavioral and organizational models, discussion, etc.; most agile coaches approach the craft from the perspective of guiding teams towards self-direction. But I think they’re being too soft! I know, I know, but don’t shoot the messenger and please hear me out." ~ Bob Galen

In this session, join seasoned leader, manager, agile practitioner and coach Bob Galen as we explore the boundaries of effective agile coaching. Mostly because of poor management practice, Bob’s assertion is that many agile coaches approach their space too softly, with too much caution and concern surrounding “telling” teams what to do.

Bob’s assertion is that responsible coaching needs a balance from being prescriptive to guiding and that our lean-age is wrong—particularly with beginning teams. In this workshop, we’re going to explore the characteristics and skills of a prescriptive coach. Under what circumstance is it ok to tell? And how to approach it? Explore how to apply team performance and results to your coaching. I’m telling you—you’ll leave with a new drive for coaching.
