How good does it feel to hear this? When teams or organisations begin to embrace experimentation, I know I'm on the right track with coaching agility.


This recently happened with one of the teams I work with. We were discussing new ways of working to try and someone said 'Let's just try it for a few weeks!'. I wanted to give them the biggest of virtual high fives.


My actionable takeways for promoting a culture of experimentation;


- ๐™๐™š๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™›๐™ค๐™ง๐™˜๐™š ๐™›๐™ก๐™š๐™ญ๐™ž๐™—๐™ž๐™ก๐™ž๐™ฉ๐™ฎ - Let people know that new approaches aren't set in stone, they can and will be changed and should be discussed at retrospectives


- ๐™€๐™ข๐™—๐™ง๐™–๐™˜๐™š ๐™›๐™–๐™ž๐™ก๐™ช๐™ง๐™š - Let people know that with experimentation comes mistakes. De-stigmatise failure and rebrand it as 'Learning'


- ๐˜ฟ๐™–๐™ฉ๐™– ๐™ค๐™ซ๐™š๐™ง ๐™ค๐™ฅ๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™ž๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™จ - When testing against your hypothesis, focus on what the customers / data is telling you as opposed to gut instinct.


What ways do you use to promote a culture of experimentation?
