This training program focuses on both the areas of "being agile" and "doing agile" of Agile Coaching and Leadership. This highly interactive workshop makes ample use of discussions and exercises to help participants hone essential coaching skills like self-awareness, coaching stance, mentoring, facilitation, active listening, powerful questioning and coaching for action.
The course explores real world scenarios/situations and challenges, and helps participants devise powerful solutions to them. It will help the learner differentiate between and among teaching, mentoring, facilitating, consulting, and coaching, and will help them gain the skills needed to create a safe environment for meaningful collaboration and healthy conflict resolution.
