Coaching High Value Creating Agile Teams

Becoming a high-performing team is no longer the end goal of team development. In the Agile context, high-value creating teams are the next level of development. But, how can we help our teams get there?

The Agile coaching competency framework, created by the Agile Coaching Institute, includes professional coaching as one of the core competencies of Agile coaching. Professional Coaching has been around for many years, and it is a very mature field with well-defined standards and guidelines created by organizations such as the International Coaching Federation (ICF).

Team coaching, on the other hand, is an emerging discipline that is actively being researched. In team coaching, we coach the whole team as a unit of knowledge. A team is a cognitive entity that takes form only when team members are together. Team coaching is more than coaching team members individually, and it focuses on leveraging their collective intelligence to achieve their shared goals. It is through team coaching that we help teams be more than the sum of their parts. It is through team coaching that we help a team move from high-performing to high-value creating.

Join us in this conversation about team coaching and its applications in an agile context. In this talk, Lucy and Jesús will cover the following:

--> How is team coaching different from coaching individuals and other processes such as facilitation?
--> What skills underpin effective team coaching?
--> How is Systemic coaching applied to agile teams?
--> Walk away with a systemic team coaching model for high-value creating teams that you can start using in your organization.
