Simple Coaching Program At Points

Simple Coaching Program At Points

Posted: 19 Feb 2018 07:54 PM PST

I ran a coaching program at Points. This mini-coaching program, which I called it Simple Coaching Program was mainly designed for Scrum Masters. However, Scrum Master Managers, Development Leads, and Project Managers joined the program as well.

The Simple Coaching Program consisted of the following topics:
  • Coaching (Simple Coaching Model)
  • Conflict and how we deal with it
  • Active Listening
  • Powerful Questions  
  • Feedback
I chose above topics as I believe they are the top differentiator between a being good Scum Master and a great one.
