Coaching

InsideOutAgile offers one-on-one remote coaching for leaders. These leaders include… Executives, Directors, Managers (people and product), Agile Coaches, Scrum Masters – as well as Technical Leaders like Architects and Domain Experts like Product Owners.

Coaching is about bringing focused attention to what matters to you… developing and shifting your capacity to take action for what you care about.

This can include such topics as…

  • Aligning intent (e.g. my goals) with embodiment (e.g. how others receive, react, and engage with my goals).
  • Nurturing a purposeful and intentional work life balance.
  • Establishing clarity about “what’s needed” in my role (e.g. scaling, delegation, collaboration, vision, purpose, etc.).
  • Working with stressful situations (e.g. navigating conflict, working with difficult people, etc.).
  • Leadership and people management topics like…
    • offering impactful feedback
    • developing my unique leadership style and voice
    • speaking courageously, nurturing confidence
    • facilitating collaboration, building an effective team
    • how to influence with authenticity
    • breaking through silos, nurturing better communication and collaboration across boundaries
  • Your own topic as a leader… something that deeply matters to you that you have struggled to make progress with on your own.

Once you have a topic in mind (or indeed several topics in mind), don’t hesitate to reach out for a free discovery session – this is a one hour session with a coach and might be all you need to unblock your topic. Alternatively, we can also opt to proceed with continued sessions within the context of a program and these can take two forms:

Intensive Coaching Program

  • Intended to offer a more intense experience for clients seeking to engage in smaller shifts as it relates to their topic. The program will also be tailored towards making progress achievable within a shorter time frame.
  • Remote* Session Cadence: Weekly 60 minute sessions
  • Duration: ~2 months

Full Coaching Program

  • Full coaching programs allows for exploration of the topic in greater depth and the topic proposed may indeed evolve over the course of the program. Integration of practices and real embodiment becomes possible with focused engagement and partnership over several months (rather than weeks). This offering is for clients who are keen to significantly shift their way of being in order to achieve sustainable and lasting transformation.
  • Remote* Session Cadence: Bi-weekly 90 minute sessions
  • Duration: ~6 months

As you consider becoming a Coaching Client, it’s important that you understand what this adventure involves. In this spirit, the Coach is offering…

Blending professional coaching with deep experience in the fields of Lean and Agile Engineering, Management, and Leadership – the coach is offering to work with you on a related topic that deeply matters to you.
  • A customized Coaching Program that is tailored to meet you “where you are at”. The coach then partners with you to take on actions that progressively enable you to make meaningful and impactful progress on your topic.
