Description

Coaching Beyond the Team: Influencing the Organization

Learn how to coach beyond the team.

As an Agile Coach, a ScrumMaster, Consultant, or Leader in your organization, your job includes helping people work more effectively. Sometimes that means directly helping individuals and teams. But often, your work involves solving problems—and engaging other people to solve problems— people beyond your team.

You may have no authority to insist those people listen or do, yet managers and executives expect organization-wide results from your activities.

Many executives see clearly how teams should change, but don’t see how the environment or their own actions impact teams. Handing those executives an impediment list isn’t a winning strategy.

In our Coaching Beyond the Team workshop, you will learn the arc of a helping relationship – Center-Enter-Turn. You’ll discover ways to establish credibility and rapport to influence and coach beyond the team. You’ll learn how to use a range of diagramming and thinking techniques to create understanding, and share data in a way that enables others to engage and take action.

This workshop is offered by Esther Derby and Don Gray.

Esther Derby:

I started my career as a programmer, and over the years I’ve worn many hats, including business owner, internal consultant and manager. From all these perspectives, one thing became clear: our level of individual, team and company success was deeply impacted by our work environment and organizational dynamics. As a result, I have spent the last twenty-five years helping companies design their environment, culture, and human dynamics for optimum success.

How your company’s values are reflected in your environment, your culture and organizational dynamics, directly determines the quality and level of your success. When your company environment, culture and organizational dynamics are positive, mutually receptive and reinforcing, your people and teams have the capacity to achieve great things.

Don Gray:

My experience across a variety of industries, from small startups to Fortune 50 organizations, provides a solid platform for assisting clients through their transition to Agile development practices.

I incorporate my study of communication, personality types, team styles, systems thinking, and human systems dynamics into my work and writing. You can find a number of my articles published at Better Software magazine and StickyMinds.com.

I frequently speak at local and regional conferences as well as Agile Development Practices and the Agile 201x Conferences.
