What we’re about
Welcome to the Agile Coaching Exchange (ACE) Austria!
This is the place for you and a community to share, learn and grow.
We have a lot of interactive formats going. Next to our online meetups (and unfortunately missed in-person meetups), we are more and more emphasizing the deliberate learning and growth bit for agile coaches:
• Regular Coaching Dojos in small groups
• Intervision Sessions with Practitioners
• And NEW to come: A pro bono Agile Coach Apprenticeship Program
This group draws inspiration from various sources. Many of us are Agile & Lean Coaches as a professional background. We regularly joined Agile Coach Camps. And we want to hone our our coaching skills on a regular basis. Last but not least several similar groups grew before ours in other areas on this planet (specifically ACE in London).
Coaching is no one-size-fits-all discipline. It is not an exact science. It stems from various similar and also different sources. Still, it is always about helping to engage clients own powers, strenghts to find their own way. Agile Coaching goes even further in a world of dynamic change, new ways of working and collaboration.
We connect Agile Coaches and changemakers from various backgrounds
• Provide a place for coaches to learn from each other and seek support
• Exchange coaching skills and experiences
• Develop new concepts collaboratively
• Learn from others and from diverse approaches
• Share, explore and learn together - and have fun
The target audience is everyone, interested in connecting the dots of Agile / Lean and Coaching, Agile Coaches, ScrumMasters, but also Life Coaches, people who care about making a difference with the art of coaching.
No matter, if you feel already like a master or start fresh right away. Always feel free to share and also bring others along, people from your current workplace, clients, friends, anyone who could benefit from our meetups.
The general language we use on this online platform is English, being as open as possible for all people from Austria, but also international colleagues. In case a meetup is only attended by German-speaking members, well then let's talk 'Austrian'. Oh and yes, we don't want to chat only, but we really want to learn from experience.
We currently explore the option for using your contribution to our meetups as part of a potential application for the Certified Scrum Professional in category A.
