“Absolutely fantastic....It grows you into the Agile coach you never imagined you could be.”

About the Advanced Agile Team Coach Cohort Program

The Agile Team Coach Cohort Program is a life-changing journey that grows amazing agile coaches who can inspire and lead high-performing agile teams. This advanced agile coaching program helps you thrive as an agile coach by deepening your agile coaching expertise and unleashing your full coaching potential.

If you are passionate about coaching teams and want to feel more knowledgeable and more confident in your role as an agile coach, then this is the program for you. During the course of 8-months, you will hone your coaching and leadership approach and be supported by your cohort and expert program leads as you learn and then apply new tools and techniques with your teams.

Our unique “supportive” cohort environment provides an enhanced learning experience as well as an opportunity to meet likeminded colleagues with whom you will connect on a deep level. Together, we will sharpen your agile coaching skills and get you ready to sit before the ICAgile Expert Agile Coaching accreditation panel.

Hone your expertise

This advanced program gives you the opportunity to learn, practice, and integrate new knowledge within a feedback-rich learning environment. Through a blend of skill drills, quizzes, group work, triads, and practice we build competence and expertise as you are given quests to try with your teams, knowing you have the full support of your cohort and program leads by your side as you sharpen your expertise in the 5 different agile coaching competencies:

You will become proficient in:

  • Professional Coaching: Raise awareness about your coaching identity, create a powerful space for your coachees, identify and serve your coachee’s agenda, and feel more intuitive, more knowledgable and more confident as a coach.
  • Facilitation: Create bespoke agile practices that not only embody the agile values and mindset but are contextual to your team’s needs. Confidently hold space for your team to co-create, decide and move forward in amazing meetings that engage and inspire everyone.
  • Mentoring: Confidently surface conflict and other complex situations and expertly help your teams navigate them. Differentiate between different teams’ maturity, discern what their needs are, and confidently provide them with options that will help solve their challenges.
  • Training: From the sage on the stage to the guide on the side. Relay new concepts and techniques in engaging ways that allow for deeper understanding and memorable learning experiences. Improved confidence in knowing when a team needs your leadership rather than holding space for them to make their own decisions.
  • Navigating the competencies: Skilfully “dance the x-wing” depending on your team/cochee’s needs, ensuring effective results with your teams.

What's involved?

The program is divided up into four modules, each of which examines each of the coaching competencies in depth. Each module progressively deepens the experience and widens the scope, with calls structured around learning, discussion, application work, and practice. It’s interactive and fun, with everyone “learning-by-doing” and integrating their knowledge within a rich feedback and “deliberately developmental” environment.

Each module is followed by a 1.5- 2-hour deep dive into the preceding coaching competency. The program concludes with a 5 1/2 day experiential online training that cements and deepens learning and connections within our cohort.

  • 16 cohort calls. 1 call every 2 weeks (2 hours each)

High praise for this program

“Absolutely fantastic course! It grows you into the Agile coach you never imagined you could be. It builds you into the the Agile Coaches the industry needs, rather than the Agile Coaches it (usually) has”

-Chris Wolff – Agile Coach
Agile Team Coach Cohort Program (ICE-AC)

This program is, I can say, a real chance to grow. An invite to think, feel and act, impossible to refuse. Sometimes exhausting, sometimes annoying, always challenging and attractive. In the end, a great experience. Just try it.
