The number of people who call themselves ‘Agile coach’ has exploded in recent years. For Gladwell Academy, reason enough to build a platform for knowledge exchange in this diverse discipline. First order of business: the first Agile Coach Conference held remotely on 28 Oct ’20 from a professional film studio. A place to become immersed in the Agile Coaching despite the distance between everyone. Chairwoman Renate Cremer, experienced Agile coach trainer, dives into the agenda.
Why an Agile Coach Conference?
“With Agile ways of working being embraced by large corporate multinationals, the need for Agile coaches grows. As a blend of internal consultant, guru, fire fighter, this average coach has little problems with the diversity of their role. For most of them it’s probably part of what it means to practice Agility, really.”
“Still, I think it’s important for Agile coaches to breed reliability and clarity – by reflecting on our work, by exchanging practices and by building our common identity. If not for us to grow as professionals, then for our stakeholders to recognize our importance and grow their expectations.”
“We’re currently speaking with many potential speakers: both based on their personal expertise and on their specific context, from leading organizations in widely ranged industries: travel, retail, oil, governmental organizations, health care, and more.”
“Which kinds of coach are there? Who has which kinds of expertise, competencies and capabilities? And from a what’s-in-it-for-me perspective? How do you make yourself stand out as an Agile coach? How do you get the ear of management? The rest of the agenda, we’re letting the coaches themselves fill it in by listening to what they have to say. We’re just creating platform, but the conversation is for the coaches themselves to have.”
Who should visit?
“While the focus of the event is on ‘accessing the C-Suite’ mostly enterprise level coaching, we encourage any Agile coach who wants to enhance their skills to join us. If you’re an Agile coach interested in sharing stories, gaining new knowledge and insights, networking and developing your skills at an enterprise level…this is the event for you.”
