What Is The Role Of An Enterprise Agile Coach?
I was asked this question just over two years ago, as part of the team that set about defining the competencies for the Expert part of the Enterprise Coaching track for ICAgile, the world’s foremost certification body in all things to do with agility.
We had no idea that it would take nearly two years to answer this question during weekly or fortnightly meetings. To answer this question, the team pulled from their extensive knowledge, experience, and the wider community.
We agreed on five areas that are essential for effective Enterprise Coaching. We specifically focused on what it would take to enable organisations to reach the right level of agility for their context and successfully achieve their goals.
These Enterprise Coaching competency categories are:
- Developing Self as Leader
- Guiding the Change Process
- Coaching Range
- Developing Leadership
- Guiding Organisational Agility
All competencies fit into one or more of these categories.
In my new video below, I explain the five competencies in more detail and how to shortcut years of learning to become an experienced Enterprise Agile Coach.
At AWA, we have poured our experience of Enterprise Coaching into a double ICAgile Certified Enterprise Agile Coach Bootcamp and an ICAgile Certified Enterprise Agile Coach Expert cohort program (ICE-EC), which enables the attendee to pass two ICAgile certifications (upon successful completion of the class and assessment) and to gain the experience and documentation needed to be assessed for the Expert Enterprise Coaching certification. We have written this 8-month program from the ground up, to be experienced for the new online world, and we include a four-day in-person residential to be attended in 2021 once the lockdowns are over.
The ICE-EC is the highest Enterprise Coaching qualification in the world and requires active engagement with an organisation going through a change program towards Enterprise Agility and some professional coaching experience.
The Enterprise Bootcamp is hosted by AWA’s most experienced trainers, and the cohort program will be hosted, trained, and participants coached, by expert competency founders Simon Powers (CEO and founder of AWA) and Kevin Callahan, and top Enterprise Coach and Trainer Sam Kiani.
If you want to enrol in the ICE-EC expert cohort program but still need to get the two pre-requisite ICP-ENT and ICP-CAT certifications, then you will need to book your place on one of our forthcoming courses running before the cut-off date.
The next ICE-EC Cohort Program dates are to be announced. If you are interested in applying, please get in touch to request to be informed as soon as these go live.
