We had the pleasure of attending Lyssa’s talk on the various certification paths for Agile Coaches held by Agile Richmond February 7th.
We learned about the current state of Agile Coaching, the coach’s challenge and the employer’s challenge defining and hiring Agile Coaches.
Lyssa also explained an Agile Coach’s profile and how to become a better coach.
A memorable moment that evening was the discussion on the Coaching Competency Framework – which she had taped on the floor at the front of the room with cards marking the various areas.
In CTI fashion, we had the physical activity of going up to the front of the room and experience first choosing where we feel we fall in the framework. We then had the opportunity to walk around the framework and think about each of the different areas.
Lyssa closed the evening session with an explanation and outline of the various certification paths. Lyssa is one of our good friends and it’s always a joy to attend here talks.
