Do you lead when you’re not the boss, or even the senior geek? Do you wish to? Guess what: you’re a coach. Coaching is exactly the art of being followed when you’re not in charge, and in this session we’ll tackle it head-on. You’ll learn: • the basics of coaching; • three noob Theory Traps to avoid; • five pillars of coaching: Sorting, Inviting, Releasing, Situating, Modeling; • using the pillars to generate or evaluate a coaching idea; • and innumerable details, wherein the devil resides. The session is divided into two three short talks, each followed by q&a and discussion. Coaching is not a science, and the path to success is not obvious, so ask an experienced coach what he’s learned.
