2:10 PM Target Coaching: Evolving Our Role To Enable Enterprise Agility

Target’s coaching practice has grown from a grass roots experiment that accelerated their modernization goals to an enterprise class organization dedicated to upskilling and reskilling team members across the agile, product, and technology areas. Enterprise Coaching adapts to meet the rapidly changing corporate needs and develop new offerings that engage employees and empower them to take charge of their growth and learning in a psychologically safe environment. To achieve this, we have expanded the role of coaching from only agile into specializations such as software engineering, product, initiative, and leadership coaching.  

This discussion will address: 
  • A review of how Target’s coaching organization operates 
  • The key aspects of the corporate coaching roles that differentiate them from other training methods 
  • The offerings and metrics Target developed to continue to adapt to the needs for team member growth
