Frequently Asked Questions

What Do You Mean With 'Coaching'?

The International Coaching Federation defines coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.

If this sounds a bit abstract, during the virtual practice sessions, you will apply professional coaching skills in a 1-1 setting. What this means is that as a coach, your role is primarily to listen and ask powerful, transformative questions, not to give advice.

What Will We Do In the Call?

If you are a more experienced agilist, you have the option of going to a breakout room to practice coaching and mentoring with one or two other people.

Here is a folder with:

  • the Arc of the Coaching Conversation
  • the Arc of the Mentoring Conversation
  • Powerful Questions
  • Listening Skills
  • The Art of Giving and Receiving Feedback
Why Are The Coaching Circles Free Of Charge?

As Agilists, we take servant-leadership seriously. Part of our charter is to serve our community, and we feel that the best way to do that is to help others grow a necessary, needed skill. So yes, these coaching circles are and will always be absolutely, 100% free. There is no charge for our work during these sessions. We simply want to help you to improve.

Who Should Attend These Coaching Circles?

You! You should attend these coaching circles! If you are an Agile coach, a Scrum master, an Agile practitioner, Agile curious, an Agile leader, these sessions are meant for you. This is a safe, virtual practice space for you to learn about Agile coaching and mentoring and to practice using these skills.

What Can I Do To Prepare?

The most important thing to do before joining a call is to identify a topic for which you would be interested in being coached or mentored. 

Next, set up your personal environment to support deeper level conversations. Be ready to turn the video camera on. Being able to see each other allows for deeper listening and engaging during the conversations. 

We know that life happens, so if you find you cannot attend the session, please cancel your registration on Eventbrite or email us at agilecoachingcircles@gmail.com so that we can open space for someone on the waiting list.

Which Coaching Circle Can I Join?

The Agile Coaching Circles is a global community driven organization. You are welcome to join any coaching circle that works for you. 

Currently, all the coaching circles are conducted in English.
