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 3-day highly interactive, powerpoint free, 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.

Everyone who participates in our Agile Team Coach courses is invited to participate in our monthly online coaching clinic calls. The coaching clinic is available exclusively for our Agile Team Coach graduates to support their continuous professional development.

The Agile Team Coach course runs back-to-back with our hands-on Agile Team Facilitator course. Both can be booked together to take at the same time or at a later date. Contact our friendly team for further details about how you can save time money with this training pass bundle.
