I am a coach, facilitator, teacher and inspirer.
My current focus is improving the performance of top leadership teams through insightful facilitation and organization systems coaching. Making difficult decisions faster and with clear alignment, unknotting challenging multi-department impediments, creating the conditions for smooth organizational delivery, helping leaders take up the “Agile transformation” that is theirs to make…this is where I thrive and help thrive.
My Agile community focus is amplifying women’s voices, which is why I am a founder of the TENWOMENSTRONG #WomeninAgile programs.
I have been pleased to serve the emergence of Agile Coaching as a profession. In 2010, I co-founded the Agile Coaching Institute which has developed over 10,000 people in the knowledge, skills and being-ness needed to yield genuinely competent agile coaching. Since 2011, I have been a member of the ICAgile working committee that defines the learning objectives for Agile Facilitation and Coaching and I assess candidates for the ICAgile-Expert in Agile Coaching competence-based certification. I have also served the Scrum Alliance as an application reviewer for the Certified Enterprise Coach (CEC) designation.
I am the author of Coaching Agile Teams, which is still a top-10 Agile book years after publication and has been recently released as an audiobook.
