Most of our classroom training courses take place in Belgium (Edegem) or The Netherlands (Breda). Please click the button with the desired date to check the exact location of the training.
18 half days of training and workshops, spread over a period of 8 months.
The Agile Team Coach Program is a six to eight months journey for scrum masters, team leads, agile coaches or management aimed at developing organisational competences. Combining interactive group training, applied workshops, individual coaching & assignments and access to the Agile Community allows for an unforgettable learning experience. In this journey, you will dive into the different agile topics, integrate your learnings on your day-to-day job and gradually improve yourself. The program is designed as a catalyst for team and organisational change.
Part 1 - Learn and Practice
The first part of the program focuses on the commitment of the team coach and the growth of their team. This means that the coach learns how to meet the team where they are. The coach is capable of guiding the team from there and identifying the opportunities that matter. This is the start of durable change.
Part 2 – Deepen and Improve
In a later stage, the focus shifts towards the bigger picture. Different perspectives are explored and we dive into the aspects of how to enable self-organisation in the team. In order for the team to learn and grow, the team coach itself needs to become a learner and establish a growth mindset.
Training and workshops are alternated. During the interactive trainings, you will be introduced to various learning topics from different perspectives. Deepen, integrate and practice your learnings through workshops and develop the skill of holding multiple perspectives.
The individual coaching is meant to stimulate personal growth and develop leadership skills. Investigating blind spots, making assumptions explicit and sharing our experience for difficult challenges are part of the coaching.
Scrum masters, team leads, agile coaches or management.
In contrast to many other training courses, we focus on:
Steady growth: a longer program allows for interleaved practice and applied learning
Developing a learning mindset: through learning we recreate ourselves, become able to do what we were never able to. Agility is not about tools and processes, but about the ability to learn.
Business agility: capability of dealing with changing environments
We expect the participants to have basic knowledge and experience in the agile way of working. We also assume the participants are currently working with or in an agile team, in order to apply the Klimaks assignments in real life.
