Radical Coaching - What it was for me

We have started a new training/coaching/mentoring session called Radical Coaching. This session has already gained publicity inside the company and also around external communities. The problem has been, that it's like the Matrix, you need to see it for yourself.

I'll try to explain now the Matrix. :)

Like one of the fathers (Henri Kivioja) of the sessions has said, it's emotional. There are almost none Agile/Lean methodology and framework stuff. We are going to the core values, where all the good things grow. A true change is not eg. taking Scrum into use, a true change is to change the surroundings in order to support people to evolve.

The entire session was based on conversation. Facilitators created a context and then people started to share ideas and opinions about it. It takes the whole session to a new level, that actually our leaders are the ones who are facilitating it. It's just not that this has outsourced this to eg. some external company, it gives strong feeling of commitment, that we are really going to do it.

This whole thing gave me a lot of new hope! We are really going to change things to the better and we are truly going to support each others. Maybe the biggest thing that I felt from the whole session was companionship. You guys and girls are amazing!
