Agile Team Coach / Scrum Master
Think back to all the great leaders you’ve encountered in your life. Teachers, coaches, bosses – what did they have in common? Chances are, you didn’t admire them for their knowledge or skill. It’s likely you admired them because they brought the best out of you, and they did it with empathy and understanding.
Business and technical knowledge is beneficial, but the most important gift is helping people to achieve their level of awesomeness. This is what sets leaders apart from the rest of the pack – what makes them not just leaders, but “team coaches.” A coach works with teams and individuals to challenge their organization’s culture and establish new, humane ways of working that enable agile/lean thinking. A coach demonstrates empathy and professionalism, which inspires their team to do their best and quickly deliver value.
Do you want to learn how to be a servant leader and boost productivity? Want to coach your development team to be self-organizing and cross-functional? Now you can – with the help of our Agile Leaders Courses.

Don’t believe us? Here is how Agile coaching changed the life of one student:
“Dr. Dave personally coached me to lead a training class on Agile methodology and the use of the Scrum framework at PetSmart. Not only did he share his exceptional knowledge of the course content with me, he also shared his approach for training the course. His ideas for conducting the training event remotely were implemented successfully. People who attended the course provided very positive feedback regarding the remote training format. Dr. Dave’s servant leadership style has helped to change how our team delivers value to our customers and stakeholders.” - Mike
