    The journey and thoughts of an Agile practitioner who discovered his passion for coaching

    I remember that morning, 6 or 7 years ago. I had been practicing Agile for a couple of years and I had decided to update my LinkedIn profile. I opened my profile, edited my headline and replaced “Scrum Master” with “Agile Coach”.
    That was a lie. But I didn’t know it at that time. I really believed I had become a coach. In reality I was a consultant, a trainer, sometimes a mentor.
    A few years later I decided to go back to school -a coaching school- and it changed my life.
    In this talk, I will share my personal journey to become an (Agile) Coach and share what I’ve learned along the way:
    • What is the difference between consulting, training, coaching and why we should care?
    • Why by calling ourselves coaches we are not doing any good to the coach profession?
    • What can we do about it?
    • How did I become a coach?
    • What are my coaching tools?
    • Does your organization really need a coach?

    Outline/structure of the Session

    • Coaching: a specific role and process
