Coaching Q&A

So, you already have coaching set up or are thinking of starting a team of coaches, but you have questions about where to start, what works or doesn't work at a large organization, and a million other questions. How do you get pointed in the right direction? Instead of jumping into a big engagement, what if you could talk to people who have gone through what you are going through now, and get some answers to those questions?

Coaching Q&A is meant to help you through those questions. When you have questions, simply let us know and we will connect you with coaches, leaders, experts within Target to answer your questions. Whether it is Product, Agile, Software Engineering, Architecture, Role Definition, organizational hierarchy & structure, or a slew of other topics, get connected with people who can share their experiences from their journeys and help get you pointed in the right direction.
