Program

This week will be dedicated to learning what coaching is (and what is not). With a detailed description, we will differentiate it from other related disciplines such as training, facilitation, mentoring, consulting, etc. We will also take a tour of a possible career development path in Agile Coaching that goes from Scrum Master and / or Team Facilitator to Enterprise Agile Coach. We will explore different scenarios and competencies necessary in each of them.

We will learn about the Ontological Coaching interpretation of language. We will differentiate observations (affirmations), statements and opinions (judgments). We will also identify the different uses we can make of language, such as: descriptive or generative. How to use language effectively and what are the dangers of not being aware of the language use. This will be our cornerstone for the rest of the program.

This week you will be practicing listening. The focus will be on learning about listening and interpretations that people and / or teams can make of the same situation. You will be able to differentiate hearing from listening. You will become aware of different levels of listening that a coach can have and put into practice techniques to bridge the gap that may exist in your listening. You will also learn a step-by-step technique to accompany individuals and teams to walk along with their inferences and interpretations and redesign those they deem necessary to achieve new results.

This week is dedicated to understanding the coaching point of view about the problems of our clients. You will be able to differentiate the "transparent behavior" from "breaches". You will know the aspects behind what your customers name problems. You will understand why this concept is essential for coaching.

From this point, your Coaching background will no longer be the same.

This week we will review the most relevant aspects of the dynamics of action coordination: how to give orders, make offers, commitment and responsibility. Upon completion you will be able to identify when an order and / or an offer is effective or ineffective. You will also get an idea about the level of commitment and responsibility shown by people in the work teams. After this module, you will be able to utilize a technique to awaken responsibility in people and avoid justifications and victimization.

During this week you will be entering the world of emotions and moods. You will be able to differentiate them and be able to break down the narrative that each of them carries behind. You will become an intelligent and competent person in emotional matters and you will obtain the necessary skills to be able to carry out coaching interventions where emotions are not a problem. Moreover, you will make these encounters revealing moments from an emotional point of view.

From this week's material and exercises you will understand the difference between knowledge and learning. You will also be able to recognize patterns against the learning experience. You will complete this module understanding different areas where learning can be manifested (or not present). And you will end up with the knowledge necessary to design a gain-awareness activity related to competencies to follow the values and principles of agility.

During this week we will review the different types of conversations that can foster or be obstacles to the objectives achievement, continuous improvement, and self-organization. Upon completion, you will be able to sense what type of conversations are happening within teams and companies where you participate. We will also introduce two coaching conversations models on which you can rely to help your clients to find solutions to their problems. After this module, you will be able to hold meaningful conversations with your clients and the people around you.

This week will introduce you to the concepts of Presence, Confidence, and respect with a view to generating a meaningful coaching relationship with your clients.

What is it about?

Since 2001, thousands of leaders around the world have been creating work environments that focus on improving interpersonal relationships. These workplaces were initially more evident in software development.

Digital Transformation

But agility is now spreading to all parts of the organization, particularly as software itself has become a key driver of business success. Organizations are undergoing a profound transformation into the era of digital business and agile practices.

Change Agents and New Leaders

Agile coaches are not only necessary as agents of change and catalysts for these transformations, but also as a guarantee of ecosystems compatible with the principles and benefits of agility. Bosses have become team leaders. Leaders are now becoming Agile Coaches, endowed with new and different skills.

The Disruptive Agile Coach & Mentor (DAC-M) process is primarily focused on developing skills to apply coaching concepts to business settings. Go beyond agile practices and learn tools from the professional coach & mentor to address the most common challenge that companies face: interpersonal issues! You will also learn mentoring tools to be able to accompany Scrum Masters, Product Owner and Developers from your own experiences!

This process not only includes the opportunity to acquire new knowledge, but also confronts you with the need to practice it in a real context.

It is not a course, it is a process of personal learning and development of professional practice.

Ontological coaching is a specific branch or style of coaching. Agile Coaching, on the other hand, is not a style, but a specific implementation of personal and team coaching (which may be ontological or not) to the world of Agility.
The DAC-M program addresses coaching mainly from an ontological point of view, and complement it with other approaches and models, for example, that of the ICF (International Coach Federation), the GROW model, team coaching model and introduces an application scheme to Agile Teams. In brief: Ontological Coaching is a coaching style. Agile Coaching is a particular application of coaching (which may or may not be ontological).
