Abstract:
As a coach, do you know what makes your teammates lose sleep at night?
The best way to find out is simple, but not always easy: ask them!
Fear is often about risk; more specifically, the risk of losing something. Maybe folks get defensive or aggressive when faced with that risk. Maybe their stomachs get queasy. Everyone has their own personal early warning systems.
During this hands-on workshop, Andy will present a technique (via facilitation and hitting “pause” to go “meta”) suitable for retrospectives or lift offs.
You’ll learn by doing: sharing your fears and vulnerabilities with total strangers. (Oh, yeah, we’re going there.) By experiencing this technique first hand, you’ll later be able to coach others to move outside of their comfort zone and into their stretch zone where perceptions expand and transformations can take place.
As Abraham Maslow said: “In any given moment, we have two options: to step forward into growth or to step back into safety.” Join Andy and take a great leap forward...

Learning Outcomes:
  • Add a tool to your retro / team chartering kit, enabling teams to make safety a prerequisite by honestly sharing their fears and vulnerabilities.
  • And at the same time explore what might be holding you back from "the next level of growth", and build your own actions list.
