Topic: The Golden Age of Agile Coaching
Description: Agile Coaching is a relatively new discipline and there is a lot of misunderstanding about why coaching is useful, what skills and competencies an agile coach needs to have, how they engage with individuals, teams and organisations and how to tell good coaches from mediocre ones.
As someone who wants to become a coach, what skills and competencies do you need to build? There are training courses, but they are not enough. Becoming an effective coach requires much more than book knowledge, it needs deliberate practice and experience working with individuals and teams.
As someone who is considering engaging a coach, what should you look out for and how do you establish the relationship to ensure the best possible outcomes. How do you create the environment where we can grow your own coaches inside an organisation, what is the pathway to competency for an aspiring coach?
In this talk Shane explores these topics and relates it to his own journey to becoming a recognized expert coach through a competency-based assessment (ICE-AC).

Topic: Striking a balance in our lives

Work-life balance is a concept that supports the efforts of an individual to balance their time and energy between work and non-work aspects of his/her life.

The information overload on this topic has made people believe that work-life balance is a daily effort to make time for family, friends, community participation, spirituality, personal growth, self-care, and other personal activities, in addition to the demands of the workplace and in striving for that, they add more stress to their lives.

How many people can in real life do this? Is it practically possible for us to always measure ourselves on a virtual work life balance scale and figure out if we are managing a perfect 50-50? My life, my challenges, my needs may be very different from yours and I may have a different way of handling them. So, the definition of this balancing act is very different for each one.

During our conversation we will be discussing on what our top priorities in life are and how we can focus on them.
