On 1st May, our fabulous host @tristan.lombard will be joined by 3 exceptionally experienced panellists with years of experience in coaching and management for the TestBash Home Coaching and Management Panel.
Of course, you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions live at the time for @amcharrett, @testertested and @aaronhodder. However, if you know the questions you’d like to ask in advance, add them here and Tristan will ask them live during the panel.
- Griffin Kimbley and Keziah: How do I ‘find’ a mentor; and, should this person be a co-hort on my team / in my company, locally based, remote, or someone within the QA / Automation field at all?
- Lance Rogers: How do you help coach someone to become a leader when they are reluctant to assume leadership responsibilities? Helping them realize their potential?|
- angel wlliams: How do you become receptive to a mentor?
- Laura Kopp: Do you adjust your approach when coaching someone with a very different skill set or area of responsibility from your own?
- Dave: why do some companies prefer player/managers rather than full time managers? (applies for both dev and test roles)
- Rachel Gilbert: What is the best way to counteract bad coaching? How much of this is matchmaking coaches/mentors and mentees?
- Connor Munro: Have you encountered a situation where you don’t have an immediate answer to a question from a developer/QA when coaching them? How did you go about researching and answering that question?
- kamaldeep kaur: When should One transition from a tester to test lead?
- Sahar: What’s your suggestion to setup the quality coaching culture in an organization which is new to this concept?
- Christian Dabnor: Is coaching more difficult when working remotely? We’ve recently, like many companies, had to make a quick change, and I find it harder to coach.
- Shailin Sheth As a Software Test Engineer how can one grow from being a Test Engineer to Product Owner?
- Guy Mason How do you sell the value of a common language across a team?
