The next time you’re looking to engage an agile coach, there’s an additional set of questions I want you to explore with them—
Do you (they) have a coach?
How often do you (they) meet?
What are you (they) currently working on in your journey?
What was the last crucial conversation you (they) had with your coach like?
Reflecting on your being coached journey, how coachable are you? What are the keys to your being coachable?
What I’m asking you to explore is their personal coaching journey. I feel that most agile coaches are comfortable coaching. But the counterpoint, being coached and being coachable, are often a different question. I guess it’s the age-old challenge of telling being easy and receiving being much harder.
