Enterprise Coaching for Agility – Master Cohort Program (ECMP)

We are excited to launch our second Enterprise Coaching Master Cohort Program this June! As we move into a new decade, Trans4mation is laser-focused on deepening the development of Enterprise Coaches and Leaders to radically change the results of Agile Transformations.

 

Organizations are looking to evolve their level of maturity from team level agility to enterprise level agility. Agile Coaching must then evolve from team level to enterprise level to help make this possible. Until recently, Agile Coaching training and development has been focused on team coaching. As Agilists, we have a responsibility to understand that achieving Enterprise Agility is a serious organizational transformation that requires us to build new capabilities in order to help organizations build new capabilities.

Developing the capacity to work at the Enterprise level of an organization requires more than understanding how to scale Agile. It requires more than additional training classes and additional certifications. The Agile industry has done that – and we have seen the same status-quo results – organizations that lack Agility.

We cannot consciously continue to sell Agile Transformation and the promise of Enterprise Agility using the same approaches that we clearly know do not work. We have to ask ourselves, what are we called to do in choosing this path as Agile coaches and leaders? What is our responsibility in shifting our way of working with organization’s? Trans4mation holds this vision and mission, and we need a collective force with collective action to change the game.

Our “Enterprise Coaching for Agility – Master Cohort Program” (ECMP) will take your Agile Coaching skills to the next level, helping you to develop a rich understanding of the complexity and scope of Enterprise Agility. There’s no other program in the world like it. It is the first Enterprise Coaching program to be accredited by ICAgile for the expert level certification in Enterprise Coaching. We launched the first “Pioneer Cohort” ECMP last October in the Azores Islands and are already seeing radical changes in how the coaches are relating to their own self as instrument of change, and in how they relate to and approach Agile Transformation.

Do you want a RADICAL change in your own way of being as a Coach, and in your results with your clients? A RADICAL change that changes you from the inside, so that your very presence transforms the space you are in? In this Cohort, you will stand in your own storm of transformation, unravel and navigate your own complexity, and practice building the new capabilities you need to become a powerful instrument of transformation. Building the new capabilities will take you into a 4-quadrant pragmatic exploration of each of the Integral Disciplines needed to realize authentic, sustainable change. Building these capabilities is like building muscle, or building new habits. It is through the use of these pragmatic tools, application and practice that you will become an authentic force for transformation.

OUR VISION FOR THIS COHORT:

This is a Mastery program in Transformational Leadership.  It will be Integral in every sense. It will be a platform for you to change your life, and it will certainly change your work.  The ICAgile and IATF certifications are bonuses, but they are not the point or focus of the Cohort.

It is deeply rooted in methods and schools of thought from three professional coaching certification programs, Integral theory – Integral Agile Transformation Framework, Organizational Development (OD), and Enterprise Agile Coaching. It is led by two Co-leads who bring many years of experience leading organizations, Agile Transformations, and coaching & mentoring leaders and coaches around the world.  Please take note: You will not receive certifications in any of the 3 professional coaching certification programs. You will receive the ICAgile CAT & Expert Certification as well as the Integral Agile Transformation Framework™ Certification upon successful completion of this Cohort Program. You will need to have completed the ICAgile’s ICP-ENT which is not included in this Cohort to be in this Cohort. Trans4mation offers the Agile Trans4mational Leadership (ATL) Workshop which is accredited for the ICP-ENT and is a pre-requisite to attending this Cohort.*

*Any exceptions to this will need to be discussed with one of our instructors.

YOUR COHORT CO-LEADS:

Michele Madore: Founder & Principal of Trans4mation; Co-Author of “Agile Transformation: Using The Integral Agile Transformation Framework To Think and Lead Differently”; Co-creator with Michael Spayd of the Integral Agile Transformation Framework™; Professional Certified Integral Coach (ICC); ICAgile Certified Trainer-Agility in the Enterprise, Coaching Agile Transitions; ICAgile Certified Expert – Enterprise Coach Track (ICE-EC, ICP-ENT, ICP-CAT); Leadership Coach (Leadership Circle System, Certified Practitioner); Certified Strategic Change Consultant, 4Sight Conscious Change Leadership Program (Being First); Founder of the Agile Richmond User Group.  This list of certifications does not define me.  From a place of purpose, passion and intention, I intentionally choose to develop my way of being as an instrument of change.  I believe that I am the most important instrument of change and therefore I must bring my authentic, whole self to my clients. I teach others to do what I have been willing to do first.  I’ve led, developed, consulted and coached organizations for the past 25 years. Whether it’s an Agile Transformation, an acquisition, a start-up, expansion – what they all have in common is the human aspect of change.  And that is where the leverage is.  I will teach you how to leverage your self as instrument and equip you with powerful and practical tools and techniques to lead transformational change at the enterprise level.

Phillip Cave: Creator of DearHuman.Life, Professional Co-Active Coach, Professional Certified Coach (International Coach Federation), Leadership + Enterprise Agility Coach (ICP-ALP, ICP-ENT, ICP-CAT), Leadership Coaching (Leadership Circle System, Certified Practitioner), Organization Relationship Systems Coach Practitioner, iEQ9 (Enneagram) Certified Practitioner. OK, now that all the badges have been listed. I am not interested in those badges. I am interested in you. Who you are as a human in the role you sometimes play called “coach”. Who you are as human is who you are as coach. Your “effectiveness” as a coach is only as effective as how you are as human. Yes, I teach you tools and approaches to use with leaders and enterprises. Leaders are humans. Enterprises are filled with humans. I combine my 30 years practicing being human with the skills I learned in two startups, multiple leadership roles at large companies, multiple organizational change initiatives, and over a decade of consulting and coaching. I teach you to bring your full self to your coaching and give you practices and tools such that you become the you (and coach) you have longed for.
