Critical questions for an Agile Coach

During this interview, we explore what Scrum Masters and Agile Coaches need to consider when working with teams and organizations.

We share the Agile Coaching Growth Wheel, and how that helps us define the skills we need to learn more about, and develop in our profession.

Coaching relationship and the necessary aspects to consider for Scrum Masters

Bob helps us by describing and giving examples for the necessary aspects that we need to consider when coaching teams, individuals and organizations. We discuss the coaching relationship, and the role of the coach.

As Scrum Masters, we are often focused on help teams adopting, and learning about Scrum, but that’s not a coaching stance. We discuss what are the different stances that we can take on when working with our coaching clients, and what coaching asks us to do: help people with their own goals, and their own agenda.

There are many aspects we need to consider that don’t show up in the usual certification courses (like CSM or PSM), but are a critical step in our journey towards becoming coaches.

 

Do you have questions about coaching, and growing as a SCRUM MASTER? Leave your questions in the comments, and we will bring Bob back on to answer some of those questions!
