You’ll be surprised how much new awareness and creativity comes from your 45-minute Intervision session! You’ll leave inspired about how to approach your work next time.
Intervision is a professional reflection practice, inspired by the “Supervision” practice used in medical, social science, and coaching fields, to safeguards the quality of professional services. In Supervision, the practitioner is reflects on a work experience with a more senior practitioner, and gets expert advice and feedback, based on a shared framework of professional standards and ethics.
Who’s an Agile "expert"? “It depends…” Agile is a set of values and principles, not standards and ethics. Our methods vary, and every organization holds a different constellation of factors to dance with. But we still want to offer quality service, and value feedback!
Within the Agile coaching community, some of us have instead adopted Intervision – in which a small group of peers offers keen listening and focused discussion to bring new perspectives and ideas to the practitioner presenting their case – with confidentiality, a facilitator and a clearly structured format to help participants offer valuable feedback without veering into opinion and advice.
In Germany, local in-person groups meet monthly for Agile-Intervision sessions. In this video, Deborah Hartmann Preuss describes the online version she helped create, which people also love!
At CoachingCocktails we occasionally do public Agile-Intervision calls, so you can see how it works. And if you contact Deb and Steve directly, we can create a demo session specifically for your group.
