Certified Agile Coaching Training

Gain professional coaching skills that will help your teams resolve blockers preventing them from success, and become an ICAgile Certified Agile Coach. Join this public ICAgile – Certified Agile Team Coach with Adventures with Agile, for the first time in Stockholm.

About the Training

Agile and Lean work where there are deep respect and consideration for people. However, often the behaviors we experience and sometimes exhibit at work are not in alignment with our own goals and the goals of the organization. This is what makes achieving agility so hard.

Professional coaching helps individuals and teams increase the transparency of their own internal and external blockers that stop them from being successful in their goals.

During this 3-day highly interactive, PowerPoint free, ICAgile-Certified Agile Team Coach 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 organization system plays.

Each day you will get to enjoy a tasty breakfast, lunch, coffees, teas, and fruits – included as part of your registration fee. Plus following completion of the class you will access our regular coaching practice group, available exclusively for Agile Team Coach graduates to support your continuous professional development.

This training will lead to an ICAgile Certification.
