Certified Agile Team Coaching

The ICAgile Certified Agile Team Coaching (ICP-ACC) certification introduces participants to foundational team coaching skills and team development concepts for starting and growing teams while focusing on teams and organisations as human systems. A key part of this certification focuses on developing an understanding of the professional coaching skillset and the value of honing these skills to serve individuals on an agile team. We introduce tools and frameworks to help you on your coaching journey through ‘real play’ not ‘role play’.

After this engaging remote training, you will be able to differentiate between and among mentoring, facilitating, professional coaching and teaching, and will also gain the skills needed to create a safe environment for meaningful collaboration and healthy conflict resolution within an agile team.

The ICP-ACC is one of two knowledge-based certifications on the Agile Coaching track. The certification focuses primarily on the mindset, roles, and responsibilities of an Agile Coach.

I learned a lot – much more than I expected. You guys did a really great job in making learning very interactive by using all different kinds of methods. I loved the practicing, the discussions and the group work. I also really appreciated that you introduced frameworks of learning and the systems thinking – both super helpful tools for my work.

Anna Schober, Online ICP-ACC delegate

The course teaches a number of theoretical coaching concepts in a very real and relatable way, and applies an Agile lens. I found my the practical exercises and group helped to build my competency and confidence steadily over the few days together. I think I have been very lucky with the cohort on this course, such a diverse and complimentary group of individuals really added a lot of value to the material and the training experience.

Vicky Hilton, Online ICP-ACC delegate

Excellent content with a new slant on my previous study and qualifications. A great refresher as well as coping with new coaches.
