Someone recently said to me that I should offer individual coaching assistance to people based on Agile Work. This would be completely non-technical life/profession style coaching. It’s an interesting idea. I don’t think I’m quite ready for it, but here are a few links to coaching, life improvement, and related things.
We’ll start with the Wikipedia entry on Coaching. This article provides some good definitions and links to a number of articles about specific types of coaching.
Esther Derby is a person I have met a couple of times through the agile community. She has a wonderful approach to training and facilitation. This article about coaching is a simple introduction to the tools of a coach.
This is a brand new blog about lifestyles. There are only two entries so far, but both are interesting. I enjoy the style of writing which is quite personable. The author seems to be positioning the blog as a lifestyle coaching resource.
And the International Coach Federation which seems to be one of the most well-known bodies that promotes coaching as a profession.
