Coaching Skills for Impact is for Scrum Masters who want to LEVEL-UP.


In this self-guided online course, I will teach you the coaching skills and framework you need to empower and enable your teams to take responsibility for their outcomes, their way of working, and their learning and growth.


You will learn how to help your team align around what's important and what they want to achieve, so they can move towards their goals and desires.  And this will enable your team to more reliably deliver valuable products and services to users and the organization.

And I totally get it.  When I first became a Scrum Master, I experienced frustration with myself, my team members, and stakeholders in the wider organization.  I wanted to see faster improvement, more ownership, better collaboration, and about 100 other things. I thought I needed to learn as many agile practices, tools, and case studies as fast as possible to be a better Scrum Master.  


I quickly discovered that coaching is what enables people to take ownership of their learning and growth, generate and integrate their insights more quickly, and move through discomfort and uncertainty with more ease.


As I began growing my personal leadership and coaching skills, I gained greater influence and took on more challenging roles.  These skills continue to serve me.
