Discovering Your Inner Badass Agile Coach

This class is focused on improving and sharpening your inside-out coaching chops. It’s intended for you to discover your inner agile coach.

Course Summary

Agile coaching is not for the faint of heart or the underskilled. One of the most critical aspects of coaching is your coaching presence, your coaching mindset, and your understanding of who you are as a coach on the inside.

This class is focused on improving and sharpening your inside-out coaching chops. It’s intended for you to discover your inner agile coach and embrace a bit of badassery to make you a better and more well-rounded coach.

We’ll use the Agile Coaching Growth Wheel as our primary coaching framework. We’ll focus on several of the most crucial competencies within the Wheel, but we’ll spend even more time on Self-Mastery as your core competency.

About 40% of our time will be spent practicing.

This is a 1-day training & mentoring event hosted by Bob Galen and Peter Fischbach. Bob & Peter bring very different backgrounds to the class that will broaden your experiential learning.

The class is limited to 20 attendees, so Peter and Bob can give you the personal coaching and service you deserve.

The class would benefit Scrum Masters, Agile Coaches, and Agile Leaders. Virtually anyone who is looking to learn and practice coaching skills.


This is a new class for us. It’s based on the ACGW, Bob’s Extraordinarily Badass Agile Coaching book, our extensive experience coaching agile leadership, and our overall coaching experience.

The point is, we’re not sure where it might go or what you might discover. However, we are sure you’ll leave it a more thoughtful and balanced coach from the inside out.
