Event Details

What is a coaching circle?
A coaching circle is a small group of 5-8 circle members plus a facilitator who meet face-to-face monthly over a period of 6 months. During each session, at least two circle members have the opportunity to be coached by the rest of the circle members on a work challenge or issue that is current to the issue holder. 
As the circle members ask more probing questions, the issue holder is encouraged to dig deeper to find answers and overcome challenges.
The method used is based on action learning. Founded in the 1950s, action learning is a proven method in the world of professional development. It’s all about transformation for both the individual and the organisation, and has earned a well-respected place on many management, leadership and professional-development programmes.

What's the benefit of being part of a coaching circle?
Being an Agile Coach, Scrum Master, Agile Manager or Product Owner can often be quite a lonely place. People in such roles often spend the majority of their time supporting others whilst themselves feeling unsupported. A coaching circle is a safe place to explore their fears and concerns. Being asked probing questions from circle members allows the issue holder to work through problems that often they're not able to work through on their own.

Other benefits of coaching circles:
  • Receive support in finding new creative solutions to challenges or issues in your day-to-day work as an Agile coach or practitioner
  • Work through issues relating to you and your work teams, allowing you to go back and approach them with confidence
  • Develop yourself and your career as an Agile coach or practitioner
  • Learn from the experiences of others
  • Practice the art of asking powerful coaching questions to unlock the potential of your peers, team members, and clients
  • Enhance team working and collaboration skills
  • Develop problem-solving and decision-making skills
  • Enhance your ability to reflect on and learn from individual and collective experiences
  • Develop awareness of how individual behaviours, attitudes and assumptions impact on decision making

In addition you will:
  • Receive guidance and practice on the art of asking open, exploratory questions
  • Practice reflective learning through group retrospectives
  • Receive support and accountability for your committed actions and your progress month-by-month
  • Develop networks and relationships with fellow coaches and aspiring coaches that are deeper than most work relationships
