Coaching Agile Teams is a training experience that covers both the being and the doing of agile coaching. There’s a lot to learn, experience and practice! At the end of the course, you will be capable of applying many new tools and techniques, as well as your own mindset changes, to coach agile teams to health. As practical as it is provocative, the Coaching Agile Teams course challenges agile coaches to rise to the fullest expression of their role. Topics include:

  • Professional Coaching. Learn and practice the key professional coaching skills and know when to use them.
  • Mentoring. Practice offering your knowledge and sharing your experience while keeping accountability for taking action where it belongs — with the person who has the problem.
  • Teaching. Utilize insights from adult learning to amplify your teaching, whether it’s teaching the agile basics or teaching an advanced agile technique.
  • Facilitating. Experience many facilitation techniques you can use with your teams and emulate the expert modeling offered throughout the class.
  • Resonant “WE” Space. Understand team culture and relationships, the evolution of team development, how to move teams toward health and high performance, and practice designing a team start-up or reset.
  • Change and Roles. Articulate the key role transitions for project managers, testers, tech leads and managers and understand how to help people change, specifically related to their agile role transition. Prepare yourself to conduct a pivotal conversation.
  • Roles at Scale. Get clear about how roles operate at scale, what each role needs to focus on, and how they interconnect.
  • Integral Agile Operating System™. Create an assessment of team health and performance using all perspectives through the Integral Agile Operating System™ and determine ways you can actively work with what you discover.
  • Conflict. Change your relationship with conflict and help the team learn to do conflict well, rather than you mediating it or fixing it.
  • Designing Coaching/Mentoring Relationships. Learn how to consciously “design” coaching/mentoring relationships that allow you to operate with both backbone and heart.
  • Coaching Stance. Craft your personal coaching stance, a powerful “come from” place that helps bring your vision of “agile done well” into being.
