The problem with “agile coaching”
Over 90% of Agile Coaches are selling “agile” as the solution to their clients. Clients do not expect agile coaches to dive into the reality of their actual problems. With the proliferation of “Agile”, it has become a dogma that that is supposed to lead to success if only it is implemented properly. It is very rare that coaching relationships are established that raise the questions that would potentially cause real growth of individual and organizational resilience.
What organistions really need
Effecting real organizational change demands coaches who are skilled at engaging the hearts and minds of the people they work with. It’s about holding the space for the client’s agenda. It’s about the process of guiding discovery. It’s about relationship building. Learn to drive real transformational change across the enterprise by learning to leverage a true coaching stance. Build your competency in professional coaching through our Path to Coaching program.
Focus on systemic impact
The focus of this group mentoring program is how to explore opportunities with your client to create impact on a systemic level.
- How do you render an assignment clarification conversation to set the right frame?
- How do you deal with a manager expecting you to give the right answer?

How we create learning in a session
At the beginning of each session, participants are given the opportunity to present a coaching challenge from their professional life and we will vote on which of those to discuss. As we dive into the challenge we will refer to the catalog of competencies from the module that we have in focus. That way, the Learning Objectives are discussed from a practical point of view.
