Tricky case forum is a place for seasoned coaches to learn together from the cases that stump us. Each hour session will use the power of inquiry to unpack a case that one coach finds to be particularly tricky for them. "Tricky" means that it is a coaching case or situation that sticks with them in some way, there is something about it that either triggers the coach, rubs them the wrong way, or for some reason, keeps coming back to mind as a challenge and, of course, opportunity.
