I have been working out a coaching kata to improve communication skills of Agile Coaches, Scrum Masters, and other leaders.
The kata provides a framework to practice techniques and tools, which are based on coaching, conflict management, and moderation, in a role play setting. The goal is that the participants strengthen their ability to communicate and to lead their team(s).
Below you can download the material for conducting the kata.
The facilitators guide includes all information for the facilitator / trainer of the kata. Read this first!
The handout includes all information for the participants of the kata.
The thinking hats by De Bono as poker cards includes a printing template for the six thinking hats by De Bono as poker cards.
