As an agile coach I get the opportunity to have mentoring and coaching sessions with scrum masters who are in a rut. They usually have tons of potential but don’t know how to take the next step forward.
In order to facilitate these conversations, I use the popular coaching model GROW.
G – Gather Data
R – Reality Check
O – Obstacles and Opportunities
W – Way Forward
Throughout the conversation I shift from a position of mentor to a position of coach in order to help the scrum master gain perspectives, come to conclusions, and create a plan to move forward.
