This episode of the “Coaching Agile Teams” Mini-Series on the Women in Agile Podcast brings you Part 2 of a discussion on the art and science of team coaching and group facilitation. During this episode, Lyssa Adkins and our host, Leslie Morse, focus on the topic of group facilitation before wrapping the overall discussion by circling back to team coaching as they touch on co-leadership and co-facilitation. One of the most important reminders in this episode might be the guidance around the 2:1 ratio for facilitator preparation, and the reinforcement of how important preparation is when creating a container where large groups collaborate.
