Everybody can run their head into a wall and get stuck – even the brightest, the most skillful and the brilliant. One way to get out of the tarpit is by using coaching. Coaching goes two ways: it is a means by which a tester can be helped to see the problem she is facing in a new light and perspective, but it is also a way for the coach to learn. In the best coaching sessions, both grow their insights.
Anyone can be a coach – we will show the participants how coaching situations keep occurring in everyday life and work, and that coaching does not necessarily have to be a life changing realization event happening with candle light, black cats and incense smoke. It’s more likely something we do already, through conversations and ‘lending an ear’.
We will use this workshop to help participants becoming better coaches, through practical exercises and shared reflection.
The workshop will be held in a relaxed tone and atmosphere where we will have fun learning about this highly useful subject.
