Masterclass Provocative Coaching for Agility
14 september 2017 @ 9:00 am - 15 september 2017 @ 6:00 pm
How to motivate the elephant…
As an agile coach you are always dealing with change in companies.
Although you are an expert in your field and you know how to shape the path of change, you know which direction you are heading to with the organization or the team, the most difficult thing is to motivate the people towards that same change!
Maybe you tried a bunch of different interventions to engage, stimulate and motivate people like giving more explanation, visualizing the end-result, swearing, convincing, trying to influence the most important decision-maker in the team… but sometimes all these interventions failed…
To overcome burden to yourself, you probably attributed the fail towards the company, the team, the individual team members,… but what if you had made other interventions?
Here comes Provocative coaching: a quite new approach in which you work most of all with the emotional part of the brain to motivate the Elephant!
The founder of this method is Frank Farrelly (1931-2013).
Frank held a Masters Degree in Social Work from Catholic University and was a member of the Academy of Certified Social Workers. For many years he was a clinical professor at the University of Wisconsin School of Social Work and an assistant clinical professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Wisconsin Medical School.
Frank started his career as a Rogerian therapist in a psychiatric centre. After a few years he was frustrated about the fact that patients did not change by applying the methods of Carl Rogers.
One day he began to say what came up in his mind, but in such a humoristic way that he could afford that and with the result that psychiatric patients became more assertive, more confident and more active! In those days, the therapeutic establishment was not amused with this experiential and not scientifical method and way of working with patients, but the patients came out of their comfort zone and made progress in a very fast way…
Frank Farrelly was described by one of his clients as “The kindest, most understanding man I have ever met in my whole life, wrapped up in the biggest son of a bitch I have ever met.
In this Masterclass, Tim Vanmarcke will use different provocative interventions to pierce difficult teams or groups, see the humorous part in it and book results that you never saw before as an agile coach!
You can expand your possibilities and learn more about your own coaching style: your attitude, your framework, what you do in interaction and communication and what works and doesn’t work.
Out of your own specific coaching style, you can choose different provocative techniques which you can use to shake the team towards more responsibility and self-organization.
In this Masterclass you will learn to:
– use warmth, humor and provocation as an agile coach
– push your own limits and step out of your comfort zone
– understand, experience and use the perspective of the team in agility work
– develop provocative interventions for and with the team
– recognize and work with different team cultures and break down patterns of those teams
– get insight in how a team crisis can lead to change
– maintain and increase self-organization of teams by using provocative techniques and interventions
