IC Agile Certified Agile Coach Workshop This is an intensive interactive experience that provides an opportunity to discover where you are in your Agile Coach journey and to learn new skills and techniques to progress further and faster in that journey. In all, you will learn fifteen tools to use with your teams. Two thirds of the workshop is spent in fun hands-on group activities and games with between 2-5 people depending on the activity. The workshop is methodology agnostic. What you learn is applicable for coaching in any Agile-oriented environment whether people are using Scrum, Kanban, SAFe, LeSS, or any other Agile-oriented set of practices. The focus here is on building your Agile coaching skillset and toolbox, not on increasing your Agile expertise. Certification At the successful completion of the learning objectives for the course, each participant will receive the IC Agile ICP-ACC, Certified Professional: Agile Coaching. It is one of the steps towards becoming an IC Agile certified expert in Agile Coaching (ICE-AC). This accredited course meets ICAgile's recently updated 2018 Learning Outcomes for ICP-ACC.

Course Content All of the games and activities run in the workshop are designed to be used by you after the workshop for use with your teams and your organization. What is Agile Coaching? – the role of the Agile Coach is often misunderstood as “Agile Expert.” While Agile expertise is necessary and allows a Coach to work in the modes of mentor and teacher, the modes of facilitator and coach are just as important. Introduces the formal concept of professional coaching and shows how it is different from mentoring, teaching and facilitating with examples, games, and live demonstrations. Powerful Questions – you will learn about a wide variety of open ended and neutral (non-leading) questions used during coaching to gather information, explore, deepen the conversation, and get commitment from the coachee. Coaching Dojos – there will be many opportunities to practice and apply what you are learning through a series of coaching dojos. Move step by step through each dojo, from “Flash Card Coaching” to “Choose Your Own Coaching Adventure” to “Coaching in Slow Motion” and many more. Emotional Intelligence (EQ) - learning about the four skills of emotional intelligence and practicing them to enhance your ability to navigate the muddy waters of human interaction. Active Listening - going beyond the typical "levels of listening"; learning about and practicing multi-spectrum awareness that utilizes presence, emotional intelligence, and the texture and context of a conversation to form a deep two-way connection with the coachee(s). Live Demonstrations – the instructor will do live demos of techniques throughout the workshop using real-world examples provided by participants.
