Description

"Wonderful, amazing. Really gave me some awesome tools/techniques and shifted my whole mindset. 5 stars!" - Scrum Master


Agile and Lean work when there is deep respect and consideration for people. However, often the behaviours we experience and sometimes exhibit at work are not in alignment with our own goals and the goals of the organisation. This is what makes achieving agility so hard.

Professional coaching helps individuals and teams increase transparency of their own internal and external blockers that stop them from being successful in achieving their goals.

During this 3-day highly interactive ICAgile-Certified coaching course you will learn specific professional coaching skills required to help others who are moving towards Agile ways of working. You will also gain the understanding and skills required to create a safe environment for meaningful collaboration and healthy conflict resolution within an agile team and be exposed to team dynamics and the role the wider organisation system plays.

  • What an agile coach is and how this role plays out with your teams.
  • An introduction to neuroscience and why it’s important as coaches we understand how the brain reacts when we’re stressed.
  • Gain fundamental professional coaching skills and insights, like what powerful questions are and how to use them effectively and one of the important tools for team and personal growth – giving and receiving feedback.
  • How to create a psychologically safe environment for your teams by looking at how to set up the team environment and help the team to know themselves and create a shared culture and vision.
  • How to conduct the coaching conversation including techniques to improve the way you listen, brainstorm and help your client be effective with actions.
