Programme – Twelve days

The training days run from 9 am to 5 pm, including a break.


Week 1: Foundation – Introduction to Agile coaching (day 1 to 4)

Starting point of the personalised coaching programme. Every coaching path originates from a coaching need. This is our starting point for the training course. Through learning by doing, we reflect on talents by trying out different coaching styles. In this way you explore what style relates to you most. The next step would be exploring the context around the coaching question.


Week 2: Practitioner – Deep dive into the Agile context (day 5 to 8)

The second module goes one step deeper. We keep exploring the Agile context and dynamics surrounding the coaching interactions. Your personal talents and other people’s talents will be mapped. We build a toolkit full of interventions you want to use as a coach. While getting a deeper understanding of the Agile context you develop yourself as a coach, moving from the operational to the tactical and strategic level.


Week 3: Advanced – Coaching the Agile transformation (day 9 to 12)

Uncover the full potential of the Agile coach. Meant for the more experienced coach. We explore leadership styles and group dynamics impacting Agile transitions. We apply the impact of the Agile way of working to leadership environments and compare this with best practices taken from Agile transformations. During this last stage we connect tools with the talents and knowledge discovered by the group.
