    About The Online Agile Coach Expert program

    Welcome to the ICE AC Mentoring program

    Are you ready to go on a journey towards real Agile Coaching mastery, both when dealing with a team member and working with an entire team at once?

    This cohort will exceed all your expectations, there simply isn’t one like it out there! The Expert Agile Coach needs to be able to demonstrate true coaching skills and needs to stay present in that coaching role while giving advice, teaching a topic, and facilitating events and difficult conversations. To make sure our program stands out from the rest, we offer an extensive Professional Team Coaching program which we couple with the Solution Focused knowledge and framework, to equip you with real tools, real experience and real mentoring on your progression. We are in it for your progress!

    The most comprehensive Agile Coaching training

    There aren’t many programs out there that prepare you for the Agile Coaching Mastery, and our program is the most extensive and complete you will ever find. Team Coach Competencies, Professional Solution Focused coaching, Mentoring and expert facilitation programs…

    Not just a certificate

    This cohort is not built to just help you achieve the Expert Agile Coach certification: This cohort is built to mentor you toward Agile Coaching Mastery, the ICE AC certificate is the crowning that follows your and our hard work!

    Solutions Focused Mindset

    After this 6-month mentoring program you will be able to call yourself a Solution Focused Coach and use the powerful tools and deep-rooted solution mindset that comes with this framework in each of the stances and competencies of Agile Coaching!

    Design and explain the coaching contract with your team and stakeholders

     Coaching and mentoring teams and stakeholders

    through different types of change.

    Acquire effective skills

    to foster collaboration and trust within the team

    During the 6 months that we work towards your mastery in Agile Coaching, you will work closely with a peer group in between sessions to deepen your learning about the Team Coaching competencies, practice actively and prepare for the deliverables you need to create for the evaluation. Your peer group will also function as another mentor point in which you can give and receive feedback, together you’ll learn from each other’s experience and challenges. We don’t see the certification as a goal, it is your growth and achieving mastery that we seek to facilitate!

    When going through the ICE AC evaluation you will be asked to demonstrate mastery in ALL the competencies and skills of an Agile Coach; Coaching, Mentoring, Teaching and Facilitating meetings and events, but also demonstrate flexibility in choosing the different stances and knowing how and when to adapt the chosen event or stance to best serve the team. An Agile coach can have years of experience and still fail the ICE AC evaluation! We saw an opportunity to help Agile Coaches become fluent in coaching, and helping them integrate the easy to understand and adapt Solution Focused Coach mindset in your work as a mentor, facilitator, a trainer and of course as a professional Team Coach.

    How does it work:

    This program is the most extensive you will find; meeting up for two hours every week, to fully focus on understanding and integrating the Solution Focused Agile Team Coach mindset in each of the stances, but also focus on online facilitation, how to build the most engaging workshops, how to help your team create a culture of coaching… As the cohort will grow and change as we go, anything is possible! And lots of room  to practice, deepen our learning and you can count on your mentors to help you in your journey toward achieving the Expert level in Agile Coaching.

    You will also work in a peer group with whom you will prepare several assignments that will enhance your understanding of the high-quality level ICAgile demands from the deliverables needed to show mastery in preparing your events, training sessions and to peer practice to prepare several “live” facilitated Agile events and training sessions.

    Our trainers and cohort leaders propose at least 2 coaching sessions and 3 mentoring sessions in which you can work on the different materials you need to be able to deliver for your ICE-AC evaluation.
