Under the guidance of your program leaders and mentors, and within a powerful community environment you will be both supported and challenged to move toward and beyond whatever leadership edges you’ve had difficulty crossing (or didn’t know you had).

LEARNING OUTCOMES

WHAT WILL I GAIN FROM THIS PROGRAM?

Enterprise Agile Coaching is a leadership role. Therefore, self-development of yourself as a leader is a crucial cornerstone in becoming an enterprise coach. Not least because over time we have learnt to be the experts and internalised biases that hinder us.

We can overcome the expert mindset and biases through demonstrable self-development and improvement, which in turn helps our relationships with others and the organisations that we serve. As the world continually changes, we need to have the capacity and awareness to continually adapt and develop too. This isn’t just a one-off process.

It’s a continual reformation of our own self character, our own self abilities and to look inside oneself and actually improve not only our skills, our external skills, but our internal ability to work with others and ourselves. Throughout this program, we support you to make the right steps to unlearning existing mindsets so that you can not only demonstrate self-awareness of your own strengths, weaknesses, and belief systems, and their impact on others but also to demonstrate the ability to manifest and “stand-in” one’s own leadership within the role of Enterprise Coach.

An enterprise coach needs to be able to help guide the process of change with lots of lots of different people at lots of different levels. This is because people react differently when change is put upon them and different people react differently to others. Guiding the change process means what it says. It’s guiding. It does not mean pushing, forcing, telling or setting.

It does not mean taking an enterprise-level process (for example a scaling framework) and installing that into an organisation. That is not a guiding process, but a telling process and data tell us that telling is not an effective way to manage enterprise organisational change. Instead, what we’re looking for is a coaching conversation with the entire organisation.

This “coaching conversation” needs to be mapped out and on our program, we will show you how using the AWA Playbook you can co-create an approach with your client and guide them in implementing, adapting, and sustaining the envisioned change. How to puts that change strategy into action and then support you in inspecting and adapting change efforts based on evidence.

This is a huge area spanning many skills and scope and thus requires a solid understanding of how to navigate this range. It’s not just about agile coaching either. You have got to be able to demonstrate understanding and expertise in professional coaching as well. For example, often IT is the focus of agile but from an enterprise perspective that couldn’t be less true. HR, leadership, legal, finance etc, all these different areas of the business must have a customer-centric focus.

Therefore, this competency requires that you have the necessary coaching scope to understand and navigate the different needs and demands of these different business areas at an enterprise level. You need to demonstrate how you can align the entire organization out of its different silos into a delivery system which can deliver products and services to customers effectively.

As an enterprise coach, you need to be able to identify and recognise that different people have different experiences, different needs and different types of problems. And it is your job to know what it takes to coach everybody (and if you even have the skills to do so or not) – whether that is at one2one, team or systemic level and how to get the right people together at the different levels of the organisation to ensure that the organisation moves and adjusts as well.

Here we require demonstrable experience and competency to develop leadership to understand what business outcomes they require and what behaviours they need to achieve those business outcomes. For example, how do they encourage that behaviour throughout the organisation and create a leadership development program to achieve the desired outcomes that the business needs.

To really demonstrate competence in this area Enterprise Agile Coaches need to have developed their own leadership skills, which is why we do that first (as outlined in Developing Self as Leader) and then we help develop others in the same. This means that as an enterprise coach you need to have access to the leaders within an organisation and work with them from a leadership position yourself. How else can you change an organisation if you don’t have access to senior leadership?

It’s in this final competency where all your knowledge and experience and ability to flex your expertise in agile, complexity theory, systems Intelligence, systems thinking and systems awareness etc and the capacity to navigate between these practices using the AWA Playbook for Organisational Agility comes into play.

And above all the demonstrative competency and ability to help your clients/organisations through an experimentation process using the above-outlined competencies to create the right approach for their specific context and to the right level.
