Agile Team Coach (ICP-ACC)

Certified Agile Coach Training

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


Gain professional coaching skills that will help your teams resolve blockers preventing them from success, and become an ICAgile Certified Agile Coach on the AWA Agile Team Coach course.

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 highly interactive ICAgile-Certified coaching course with Adventures with Agile, 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.

Now more than ever your teams need effective agile coaching to help them navigate the increasingly complex landscape. You will come away from our training with hands on capabilities to help your teams succeed thanks to the highly interactive, ‘do it now’ training format. Then… reinforce what you have learned at our regular online coaching clinic post-class!

What about Remote Agile Team Coaching?
To survive and thrive in the online world it is necessary to have staff who are skilled in coaching and facilitation to work with teams and to create a high performance. Every team is different with a huge varying set of factors that help or hinder them to perform.  Our online class, which has been completely re-engineered for the online environment teaches you how to create great online agile teams, how to coach for better outcomes, and how to stay in control under extreme change and pressure, and many other important skills, tools, and techniques. We are teaching this online using the very techniques you can use to overcome these problems yourself. Join this class to dramatically improve your skills and knowledge that will enable you to mentor and coach your co-located and remote teams.
