Is Agile Team Coaching necessary?
"We've done the training, why do we need coaching?"
Its common question, and also a legitimate one. After all, if the training has been completed we just need to use our new knowledge, right?
Training is great to build knowledge, to learn and experience new topics, techniques and tools. However, coaching builds on that knowledge by enabling and accelerating the understanding and putting it into practise in your unique context.
Agile Mountain uses a Catalyst Coaching approach which focuses on building your capability and ensuring it is sustainable. It is based on the belief that your teams can succeed independently. Agile Mountain will intentionally stay out of your business to maintain an important external perspective. From here Catalyst Coaching works best as a systemic view of your teams can be gained.
This is different from consulting. Agile Mountain will not tell you what to do, nor do the work for you. Catalyst Coaching helps you find your own solutions through pursuing continuous improvement techniques. The ultimate goal of Catalyst Coaching is for you to become independent of external support.
