Weekly Group Cohort Calls
The program includes 90-minute group cohort sessions focusing on a weekly theme. These calls will vary in format to include case studies, triad and dyad practice, and coaching.
5-Day Remote Residential
A deep dive into the practice of team coaching. Here is where you will take all of your learning in each competency and practice integrating it into your work with teams. This retreat prepares you to level up your work.
Capstone Agile Coaching Stance
The program will conclude with the development and articulation of your Agile coaching stance, including how you work with teams and why you do what you do.
4 Hours of Individual Professional Coaching with a Certified Professional Coach
One of the best ways to learn coaching is to receive individual coaching. These calls provide space for your personal growth by providing rich time for reflection and feedback.
Reading and Journaling
Developing the skills of an Agile coach requires attention to your own development first. Each month, participants complete assignments designed to expand one’s knowledge and self-awareness.
Small Group Calls
Periodically throughout the program, there will be small group calls focusing on skills practice or on group supervision. These calls are designed to deepen your understanding and awareness.
(8) 30-minute Supervisions
The program includes a total of 4 hours of individual (one-on-one) supervision. Your supervisor assesses a video (or audio) of you in a real-world situation and provides feedback and growth opportunities.
Your final assessment will include a written component of journal entries and reflection questions, as well as a video-based demonstration component of you facilitating, teaching, coaching, and mentoring.
1.A professional and supportive network
You will develop a life-long network of people to support you along your journey.
2.Develop your Agile coaching practice through experience
This program, by its nature, will propel your practice forward quickly, forcing you to practice the whole arc–from contracting to coaching and completing an engagement. We help you develop on the job!
You will receive feedback from your peers and co-leaders to apply your skills in an adaptive way. You’ll also receive feedback from your clients in your real world to help you understand the impact you have.
4.1:1 Coaching and 1:1 Supervision
Unlike basic certification programs, we believe that an important way to learn coaching is by receiving coaching. You’ll deepen your skills and awareness because they will be modeled for you throughout.
