Experience the Art and Science of Agile Coaching

Scrum Alliance® is proud to present the revamped 2019 Agile Coaching Retreat! Join us for the first iteration of our new retreat concept at the beautiful Claremont Club and Spa in Berkeley, California April 7-9, 2019.

Take advantage of this fantastic opportunity to collaborate with your fellow agile coaches, learning from each other and producing valuable outcomes that help transform the world of work. Unlike other coaching events, you’ll go deep into issues that you’re passionate about. It’s also about making valuable connections that continue long after the retreat’s conclusion. This is a dynamic networking and skills-building retreat, featuring meaningful and actionable interactions via a robust new selection of events.

What Happens at the Agile Coaching Retreat?

You’ll get the opportunity to enhance and expand your professional network, as well as receive mentorship from your fellow attendees.

Moreover, this expanded Scrum Alliance Agile Coaching Retreat allows you to accelerate your professional development via invigorating speakers and guests, plus global agile thought leaders. Newer or prospective coaches will leave this event with actionable tools you can implement in your own agile practice once you return home.

Who is it for?

The Scrum Alliance Agile Coaching Retreat is for anyone interested in agile coaching or who wants to improve their agile coaching skills/network. Additionally, more experienced coaches will hone their talents alongside the best and brightest agile coaching minds in the field.

Principles: These Retreats are developed in alignment with the agile/Scrum values and we curate the event to guide your work and connections.

  • The event creates time and space for focused learning and growth
  • Learning is done using an agile process framework called Scrum
  • Teams are the heart of Scrum and are a key differentiator at the Retreat
  • Teams go deep into single topics rather than covering many broad areas
  • The event is designed for deep, collaborative, shared learning
  • Connections are made when our brains are quiet; two nights of sleep allow for creative idea formation. The Retreat schedule allows time for reflection, renewal, rest, and retreat from the fast pace of life and work

Price: $995 USD



A taste of what to expect:

Mentoring Program

The Mentoring Program is where key professionals to pair up with others. Mentors will mentor 5-10 people during the retreat, making sure to help attendees meet their personal and professional goals. Mentees will start a coaching journal with goals, plans, and action items.

Session Highlights

Coaching Intelligent Teams; Leading from Relationship Systems Intelligence (RSITM)
- Marita Fridjhon, CEO and Founder, CRR Global
This interactive presentation will focus on holding a systems approach and discovering the intelligence inherent in systems regardless of coaching niche.

Empathy Dojo
- Lorraine Aguilar
Develop the capacity to empathize rather than react. In this game, participants apply a simple kinesthetic process based on four physical postures to translate a triggering criticism into constructive dialogue. Teams will spar by testing how quickly they can extinguish a verbal fireball with empathy instead of making a "career-limiting reaction."

Coach Training
- The Coaches Training Institute® (CTI)
CTI's proven whole-life coaching approach enables people to achieve success and fulfillment in their work and life through a powerful coach/client alliance that promotes and enhances the lifelong process of learning.

The Enterprise Agile Coach – Coaching for Agility Across the Organization
- Michele Madore and Michael Spayd, TRANS4MATION Co-Founders, Managing Partners
Enterprise Agile Coaching is an even newer discipline than Agile Team Coaching. While it builds on Team Coaching, it is a considerably more advanced endeavor, requiring high levels of emotional intelligence, systems thinking, Organization Development (OD) practices, professional coaching competencies, and leadership development understanding. This is not the training most coaches have received. This highly interactive session will present the six competencies defined for Enterprise Coaches, illustrate them concretely using a case study, then put them into action in real situations from the participant's own work.

“I have had the most fantastic experience at the last Scrum Coaching Retreat...I felt nourished, inspired and energised. We coaches can feel very lonely sometimes without anyone to cheer us up. Our journey is made up of ups and downs and we need to spend time together to learn from each other, to celebrate success, and to understand that we are not alone in the journey.”
