for Sustainable High Performance (ICE-AC)

“Program leadership team includes pioneers and masters in Agile Team Coaching with proven experience
leading earlier cohort participants to Agile Coaching Mastery.”

Program Description

Softpro Transformation Partners’ s Agile Team Coaching Mastery for Sustainable High Performance, a 10-month in-depth ICAgile Expert-level Agile Coaching Cohort Program is competency-based. The game-changing program is a one-of-a-kind immersive and experiential journey with 150+ hours of synchronous curriculum designed to exponentially increase your agile team coaching range. Our program leadership team includes pioneers and masters in Agile Coaching with proven experience leading earlier cohort participants to mastery.
At the end of ten months, you will be able to demonstrate and practice excellence in professional and team coaching, mentoring, teaching, and facilitation.

Top 5 Outcomes

    1. Find your people! Build your community and network of like-minded Agile coaches. We purposely limit this cohort to 12 Agile coaches. You will learn and practice alongside change leaders who are achieving the highest standard of Agile coaching competence.
    2. Uncover the uniqueness of your journey! We use Enneagram assessment to not only self-reveal what holds you back but also to offer insights into the journey towards strength and liberation, connecting you to your strengths and higher selves.
      The Enneagram has, over the past decades, proved to be one of the most powerful tools in the development and coaching environment. The use of the Enneagram not only fast-tracks insight, growth, and integration but also gives durability and magnitude to the development process over time.
    3. Level up your coaching skills! Develop your skills through experience and practice, helping you to close the gap between learning and application of Agile coaching competencies and skills. You’ll have ample practice space to improve your new skills through demonstrations, in-cohort practice, lived experience, and assessments.
    4. Make It Personal! Receive individual, personalized coaching and mentoring as well as group coaching and supervision. You’ll also receive regular feedback, including in-depth, personalized assessments of your skills and practices from ICAgile-certified cohort instructors.
    5. Recognize Your Achievement! Once you have completed the cohort and passed ICAgile assessments, you will obtain the ICAgile Expert in Agile Coaching (ICE-AC).

My Agile Story

What You’ll Do

  • Enneagram Assessment and Debrief (USD 500 Value): The Integrative Enneagram creates self-awareness and uncovers the patterns of behavior that subconsciously drive and motivate us to act in certain ways. When we make these patterns and motivations conscious, we are able to transcend them and develop richer, more supportive ways of being. Working with the Enneagram empowers individuals to take responsibility for their own behaviors and growth from a greater understanding of why they act and react the way they do.
  • Thought-Leaders Sessions (Priceless): 3 to 5 sessions, 2 hours each, are being planned to be taught and facilitated by thought-leaders in topics that include but are not limited to Professional Coaching, Systems Coaching, Systemic Constellations, and Professional Facilitation.
  • Five Experience-based Scenarios: Throughout the program, you will practice your skills using real-life scenarios developed by our co-leaders. This learning approach enables you to analyze and develop responses that include coaching plans, tools, facilitation plans, and teaching aids. We have learned from experience that this scenario-based approach enables you to learn from others’ experiences, collaborate with others, and develop novel responses.
  • Synchronous Learning: This cohort meets weekly, with the exception of holidays, totaling more than 150+ hours of synchronous instruction. The learning includes large-group calls, small-group supervision, scenario calls, skill drills, practice spaces, and a virtual residential. We’ve also built in additional asynchronous learning, building upon the core class learnings.
  • Individual Coaching and Personalized Supervision: We strongly believe that the best way to understand the power of coaching is to receive coaching. As part of this cohort, you will receive four hours of private, individual coaching.
  • Assessment and Feedback: Practice and feedback are required to improve existing or developing skills; ICAgile requires that you practice each of the core skills–coaching, mentoring, teaching, and facilitating-for a minimum of 25 hours per skill for the duration of the cohort. At the program’s midpoint, you’ll submit recordings of each skill, submitting them for assessment and feedback to ensure that you are on track.
  • Interweaving Skills/Application at Work: This cohort draws upon the research of behavioral scientists such as Katy Milkman, adult-development models from Robert Kegan and Claire Graves, Christopher Avery’s Responsibility Process, and more. Additionally, practical, must-have skills, such as designing alliances, crossing edges, and navigating conflict, will be modeled and taught so that you can practice and apply these skills with your organization.
  • Two Virtual Residentials: We’ll kick off with a virtual residential, setting up our container and getting aligned with the program requirements. The first virtual residential will be held over two days, 5 hours each day. We’ll also have a midpoint residential, giving us a safe space to come together and continue our in-depth exploration. The second virtual residential will be held over four days, 4 hours each day.
  • Supportive Learning Practice: We know that independent practice supports both learning and community. We’ll create learning triads, rotating every 3-4 months. Then, toward the end of the cohort, you will participate in colleague-led calls. We also set up additional safe practice spaces outside regular sessions through coaching circles, teaching/facilitation groups, and active engagement.

By the Numbers

Each month, plan to spend 20+ hours in cohort calls, skill drills, dojo, stage work, and practice. You will also spend time each month reviewing material, practicing skills, and meeting with your triad. Ours is an intensive program, meaning that you’ll need the support of your organization, teams, and those in your inner circle.
