A good Agile coach is the one who shares ‘Your’ goals & works hard till ‘You’ achieve them!
My journey as the coach began in 2013. Frankly, speaking I wanted to work in agile space and found a job with the title Agile Coach. I googled what it meant and somehow it wasn’t such a popular concept then and since I fulfilled all the expectations for the role and also cleared interviews, I accidentally got into coaching.
What began as a namesake grew into something bigger and what a journey it has been – exciting and fulfilling. And definitely challenging. Managed multiple Agile Transformation Journeys, coached more than 150 teams, Agile consulting in 50+ clients, Agile Training for 12000+ people, may be countless events and ran Coach the coaches program for 100+ potential agile coaches, so far. 🙂
I am sharing the insights from my experience which has helped me throughout being successful in my coaching endeavors and hope you may find it helpful –
There are of-course many other technical traits that you can imbibe but they are confined to specific subject area expertise, the above points transcend specific competencies and yet are very tough to adhere to. All the best for journey as an Agile Coach.
