Do you want to learn how to coach software testers to be skilled at what they do, using a systematic approach? Then this is the talk for you! Want to have a try at coaching? Then come along watch a demo and perhaps even have a go at coaching a tester!

Coaching, unlike training puts the student at the center of the session. You coach on what the student wants to learn empowering and motivating the student. Of course, ultimately these are the responsibility of the student, but as a coach there are ways to help a student feel more empowered. Learn how to guide a student through a coaching task, in a challenging and motivational way.

Coaching is more than asking questions, its about directing the student. But how can a coach direct yet continue to put the student in charge of learning? The good news is that you can! Find out about energy in coaching, learn how to detect and then manage this vital energy. Discover coaching patterns to help you navigate the 'coaching space' including syndromes that students and coaches can suffer from
