Practice coaching under the supervision of Certified Coaches
Every person who uses coaching in their day-to-day work should have a safe place to practice their coaching skills under the supervision of other experienced coaches.
We have created such a place for you. Every Wednesday, we run a Coaching Dojo (dojo means a place of practice in Japanese) where you can practice coaching with others in small groups of 3 to 4 people. In the first hour, you will get a refresher on coaching basics, followed by 2 hours of practice. You will get immediate feedback from Certified Coaches.
Having two supervised sessions per month is the minimum that we think every person who practices coaching should have in order to keep their skills current.
You may remember from your CSM class that a Scrum Master should have 4 core competencies:
Coaching seems to be the most important and the most challenging one. A Scrum Master serves the teams by coaching the team members in self-management and cross-functionality. He serves the organization by leading, training, and coaching the organization in its Scrum adoption.
Does it mean coaching is a tool for Scrum Masters only?
That is not correct. Everybody in a leadership position, everybody who deals with other humans, will benefit from this important
soft people skill. Your coaching skills will never become perfect; that’s why all coaches need regular supervision of their work.
