    Ep 03: Is Coaching a Role or a Profession?

    Ep 03: Is Coaching a Role or a Profession?

    We break new ground this time, bringing in a guest and recording without a net. This one surprised even us—we learned things we didn’t know as we talked. Without a doubt, our best show yet. Listen and see if you agree, and tell us. What’s The Agile Coach? It’s a periodic podcast exploring the challenges and joys of being an Agile software development coach. Skip Angel and I talk over something having to do with what we do every day, then if it’s interesting, we keep going, this time in front of microphones. We’re interested in going where you want to go, so let us know where that might be.

    Ep 02: Establishing Trust

    Ep 02: Establishing Trust

    You've been patient, and we appreciate it. Here's your reward: the second episode of The Agile Coach, entitled "Establishing Trust." In a little over 20 minutes, Skip and Michael explore how an Agile coach establishes trust with those she or he is trying to help...and what can happen when that trust is lost. We tell stories of our successes and a few failures to illustrate the point...and we barely scratch the surface of the subject. You can expect future episodes on different dimensions of trust. Getting out the second episode of the podcast (the first one with real content), was trickier than we thought. Some unexpected travel forced us to try a "double-ender," where the two of us, separated by 3,272 miles yet joined by the Internets, each record our own high-quality audio while watching and listening to each other using Skype. To our astonishment, it worked, although not without a few complications and a bit of variable audio quality. We're learning, and we expect that not distance, nor rain, nor snow, nor gloom of night will stay this podcast from its appointed schedule in the future. Let us know what you think, because that's what makes all this work.
