Whether you work in an organization or as an independent, you will become the person that others seek out when the situation becomes difficult or complex. As a result, you’ll naturally see exponential growth in your reputation.
This in-depth 8 month program is rigorous, placing an emphasis on practice and feedback opportunities through skill drills, peer coaching, team coaching, ongoing group work, professional one-on-one coaching and one-on-one supervision of actual Agile coaching sessions. You will have ample opportunity to learn from your peers and bring real-world scenarios to the group for feedback and guidance.
Developing the skills of an Agile coach requires attention to your own development first. Each month participants will complete reading and journaling assignments designed to expand your knowledge and self-awareness and help you prepare for the group calls and your individual coaching calls.
A professional and supportive network.
You will have a life-long network of people to support you along your journey.
You will receive feedback from your peers and co-leaders to apply your skills in an adaptive way. Then, you’ll get feedback from your clients in your real world environment to understand the impact you have. We do not rely on role plays or made-up cases to help you grow.
Develop your Agile coaching practice through experience.
This program, by its nature, will propel your practice forward quickly; forcing you to practice the whole arch from contracting to coaching and completing an engagement.
1:1 Coaching and 1:1 Supervision.
Unlike basic certification programs, we believe that an important way to learn coaching is by receiving coaching. You’ll deepen your skills and awareness because the skills and presence will be modeled for you throughout.
24 Hours of Individual Coaching and Mentoring. Participants must complete at least 24 hours of individual coaching and mentoring. Ideally, this will come from at least 2 individuals (may be peers/colleagues, may not be other certification participants) that the participant identifies and establishes an explicit coaching relationship.
24 Hours of Team Coaching and Mentoring. You must also complete at least 24 hours of coaching and mentoring with a team.

Highly recommended - time well spent!
The biggest opportunity for today’s leaders is…to create engaging and collaborative environments that access the collective intelligence of their teams and also accomplish the desired results. I often find leaders who are really good at one or the other but struggle with creating both. Those that can cultivate range in their leadership have a real opportunity to achieve even greater performance.

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.

But as an added benefit to growing your coaching ability, from within, upon successful completion of the program, you will receive the ICAgile Certified Expert in Agile Coaching (ICE-AC).
