MEET COACH ANTOINETTE COETZEE

Antoinette has been part of the Agile movement since working with some of the original Manifesto signatories in 1996. She spent several years as Agile team member developing software products. She has been an Agile mentor since 2005, then received coaching from Agile Coaching Institute in the US in 2009 to kick off her Agile coaching career as Team Coach. She was part of the first Enterprise Coaching cohort in the US in 2014 and completed her certification in a cohort in 2015. Since then she has focused on growing agility at the enterprise level. This is achieved both through the adoption of Agile and Lean practices, but more importantly by leaders at all levels growing their inner agility.

Antoinette collaborates extensively with the front-runners in Agile coaching and leadership world-wide to train and develop Team Coaches, Enterprise Coaches and Agile Leaders. She frequently leads classes internationally, both in person and virtually. She is a coach of coaches, through training and mentoring, as well as one-on-one coaching. She spends most of her time collaborating with leadership teams and Agile transformation leads, as well as more junior leaders like Agile coaches and ScrumMasters. Her aim is to grow agility in EVERYONE, and coaching others how to do it. In line with that aim she often helps organisations set up internal coaching competencies.

She is a trained professional coach and certified in Organisational and Relationship Systems Coaching (ORSC). Her forte is changing culture and growing high performance in leadership teams, including teams in conflict.

Antoinette is an accomplished speaker and regularly delivers talks and workshops on agility, leadership and transformation at local and international conferences.

Agile Team Facilitation teaching

Facilitation is a cornerstone skill for successfully leading agile teams. As much of the work in agile teams occurs through face-to-face communication and involves collaboration in nearly all decisions, the ability to facilitate discussion is paramount to success.

In this 3-day Agile Team Facilitation course you will develop a greater sense of self-awareness, an improved ability to self-manage, and will be able to continually show-up powerfully with a strong presence.

The course is brought to you in partnership with TeamCatapult in the US and it holds the distinction of the first ever ICAgile accredited Facilitation class, back in 2012.

The more I learn about facilitation, the more I realise EVERYTHING is about facilitation. And as facilitator your presence is your biggest tool.”  Antoinette Coetzee

Enterprise Agility Masterclass teaching

Attend the advanced ICAgile Certified Enterprise Agility Masterclass to gain a deep understanding of agility at the enterprise level by acquiring advanced structural, process, cultural and leadership knowledge. This highly interactive course will answer questions such as “How does an organisation become more responsive and more purpose-driven?” and “What changes will an organisation need to go through to be more agile?”.

The course is brought to you in association with Adventures with Agile in the UK whom, since launching the class in the summer of 2018, have trained more than 600 people in cities across Europe and the USA. There’s no denying that this advanced training for Enterprise Agile Coaches is a challenging few days with a lot to learn and absorb. Long after the class people have reported significant improvements and impacts to their transformation programs, including more impactful conversations with leadership, overcoming resistance through a more inclusive approach and crucially, now able to solve real business problems with solutions that work for their businesses.

‘‘When Simon (Powers) asked whether I would be interested in joining the AWA faculty to teach the enterprise courses I jumped at the chance: we are on the same island of sanity about taking a COACHING approach to Agile transformations. And we reached it through experience, including using approaches that did not have the lasting impact we were looking for. I have been teaching the courses in the US and Europe since May 2019 and I am really curious to see whether it will have the same impact here in South Africa. Participants report major shifts in their approach and thinking – a world of new possibilities opening up.’’Antoinette Coetzee

This 2-day Virtual Facilitation Masterclass will help participants take their learning from the Agile Team Facilitation course or other similar facilitation courses and learn key principles and techniques to translate those skills into a virtual environment with a distributed team.

The course is brought to you in partnership with TeamCatapult who has been leading remote experiences since 2015 and teaching remote facilitation since 2017.

“Working with groups virtually offers us as coaches, facilitators and trainers many new possibilities geographically, but it only works if our participants have the same quality of connection, collaboration and control than if we were in the same room together. Currently most people are with virtual facilitation where we were with internet shops 20 years ago, but virtual meetings and training can in fact be BETTER than in-person. Except for the hugs!”Antoinette Coetzee
