AGILE TEAM COACHING

Coaching as Powerful Leadership

Coaching is one of the most powerful forms of leadership, especially in an organization looking to embrace an agile mindset. The Agile Team Coaching course is designed for those who want to enhance the skills of helping others learn and grow.

Whether you hold authority over your teams, or merely the responsibility of helping your team create results, this 3-day workshop will help you navigate the complexities of collaboration, and even lessen the use of authority to get work done.

The course is brought to you in partnership with TeamCatapult in the US, where they have trained hundreds of leaders, managers, product owners, agile coaches and ScrumMasters in the skills of facilitation and coaching.

“As agile leaders we have a palette of approaches to choose from when a problem arises. Knowing which colour to paint with in the specific situation, be it mentoring, advising, coaching, educating, is what turns a house painter into a Van Gogh.” Antoinette Coetzee
