If you decide to include professional coaching skills in your toolbox and follow an ICF accreditation, you should first start with The Story Journey to Your ICF credentials, then participate in one of our coachings in Agile Environments – the only icf accredited ACTP program created by Agile Coaches for Agile Coaches. There is another theory that coaches need to be aware of how they are helping the team and that they need to work with the team to create a specific and conscious approach to coaching, instead of just show up and hang out with the team. But since they don`t need you, the fun work will come to you through the magical karma of good coaching and you`ll be ready to start. The agile coaching agreement or working agreement is between the coach and the coach. It helps to prepare expectations for both people in the discussion. This includes: (1) authorization, (2) confidentiality, (3) respect, (4) will, (5) opening and (6) follow-up I wanted to share a basic agreement that I use and adapt from business, role to role and person to person.

In the second part, Dave West, Leslie Morse and Maaike Klasen take you on the theme: Working with the ICF coaching contract at Scrum and exploring: It seems to me to work better than doing a detailed evaluation that gives me a lot of self-confidence, where I can focus exactly. I`m not sure my approach is more agile or just my own predilection because of my cowboy background. I`ve met a bunch of people who think it`s like having an agile trainer on board, like having a rabbit`s foot in your pocket. The coach seems to bring you luck, even if no one is really sure how it works. www.agilealliance.org/resources/sessions/mentoring-vs-coaching-show-me-the-difference/. What is the contract time for coaching? Will it be an ongoing or intermittent engagement? Sometimes I am also hired to help “The Organization” instead of a certain team.
