Coaching Kata

A coach guides the learner and team through the scientific way of thinking and acting. A coaching cycle involves asking the five coaching questions. This should only take 5-15 minutes per day. These questions practiced daily develop the routine and reinforces learning.

  1. What is the Target Condition?
  2. What is the Actual Condition now?
  3. What Obstacles do you think are preventing you from reaching the target condition? Which “one” are you addressing now?
  4. What is the Next Step (experiment)? What do you expect?
  5. How quickly can we see what we have Learned from taking that step?
