AgileSoCal Monthly Meeting - Wednesday, July 18th 6:00 PM

Coaching Heuristics: What's in Your Toolkit with Vic Bonacci

When: Wednesday, July 18th
Networking and food, 6:00 PM.
Activities start, 6:30 PM.

Does a carpenter go to work without a toolbox or an angler go fishing without tackle? Of course not! So why would a coach show up without her own tools of the trade? Like many coaches, Victor Bonacci has assembled his own collection of definitions, concepts, charts and theorems that helps him as a coach – a toolkit that he refers to regularly.

Examples include:

Join us for a copy of Vic's list (56 documented, and growing). He will share how he uses them and dive into a few with some coaching role-play. We'll discuss what additional heuristics other people may be using.

Learning Outcomes:
