Agile People Coach Certification

In the future of work HR and Managers will need to take the role of Agile People Coaches, with the necessary competence about basic human needs, behaviors, teamwork, and how to support an emerging strategy towards the organization’s purpose. 

The Agile People coach is an alternative career for traditional managers and HR representatives in the future of work. An Agile People Coach is more than an Agile Coach, although the basic understanding of agile values, agile tools and methods, systems theory, and organizations are the same. The difference lies in the deeper People’s perspective. During this training, you will learn how to coach people to find a place where they can be the best they can be and how to create conditions for people to perform together.

Gain awareness about tools, methods, models, and frameworks, for making teams perform. Understand how to enable teams to work cross-functionally between departments by gaining knowledge of new ways of working that will promote communication across usual boundaries – like the Buddy SystemBeyond Budgeting or OKR:s. Last, but not least, you will learn how strategies emerge and adapt and how to involve all people in the organization in the emerging strategy creation. When people continuously improve and learn in a common direction, and when mistakes are seen as learning opportunities, we can create that psychologically safe culture that forms the foundation for a learning organization. And when people feel safe to be vulnerable in front of peers, we know we have succeeded.

Workshop program Session 1-5: Agile People Coach

Session C1-5 Deep dive into Agile People Coaching

Session C1: Agile Coaching and the Four Roles of a Coach

Mentoring, teaching, facilitating, and coaching are the stances of an Agile Coach – they need to master all of them to be successful and pick the right stance depending on the organization, situation, and the people. But what is the difference between an Agile Coach and an Agile People Coach?

Session C2: The Agile People Coach – a new Role for HR and Managers

In this session, we examine the nine roles of the Agile People Coach and a self-assessment – how skilled are you in the different roles and where do you need to improve. What are the skills that you need to add as a regular Agile Coach, Leader, or HR person if you want to increase your agile & people skills and to be able to call yourself an Agile People Coach? Finally, we look at scenarios for practicing when to take what role.

Session C3: Professional Coaching

To understand the Agile Coach and the Agile People Coach’s roles, you need to also have some knowledge in Professional Coaching and know how to formulate and ask suitable questions to guide and lead a person to understand what needs to be done in any situation.

Session C4: My Motivation Profile as a base for Self-leadership

Who you are and what makes you do what you do is very personal and different from others’ why. Communicating with people who are different from yourself and knowing how to understand what makes other people do what they do and how they are different/similar to you is crucial in agile environments. We develop My washing instructions and discuss how your needs affect your life and work.

Session C5: Conflict Coaching

Exploring conflict theory and finding the right balance between harmony and healthy conflict in a team or organization is key when moving towards high-performing teams. In this session, you learn different models for dealing with conflict, understanding conflict escalation and different types of conflicts, and handling conflict in a team.
