Leaders & Managers

Our first coach circle exclusively for Execs & Managers will begin in October 2010. Please contact us for details.

From the beginning of his Agile career, Michael has worked extensively with management and their unique perspective on the world of self-organized teams and the necessary changes to management assumptions that accompany an Agile transition. Managers and executives making the at times difficult transition to Agile is a subject near to his heart.

We offer coaching/advisory groups exclusively for those in management or executive level positions to help us ground fully and focus in the managerial perspective. These groups consist of coaching, peer support, and expert advising from Michael, based on his nine years doing large scale Agile transformations. Groups are limited in size to 4-6 people and typically meet biweekly.

Topics include:

  • Organizational transformation & change models
  • Leading teams from the boundary
  • Leadership agility
  • Eight Agile Manager competencies
  • Leadership style assessment
  • Issues in Agile Leadership

We also offer professional coaching for executives in the midst of the Agile transition, please read a description.   For Agile Managers, we offer the New Agile Manager class, exploring the competencies required to add value in the emerging Agile world.
