Great job transmitting expertise in coaching and facilitation. Live demonstration of techniques to resolve your doubts, answer your questions and help you solve issues you may be facing in your workplace. At the end of the training I was able to apply my newly acquired coaching skills to my teams and be better at my job.

This course opens new spaces in the mind, raises self-awareness, and also gives an answer on how to deal with difficult situations. The course is interactive and invites discussion, which increases the effectiveness of learning. The meetings were great fun and the huge knowledge of the trainers, both theoretical and practical, made me after every class looked forward to the next meeting! Thank you!

The course Elevating Agile Coaches introduced me to a coaching mindset and played a significant role in my career change. Lucia navigates the course content providing real-life examples and creating the space for practice with coaching dojos. This course was genuinely transformative for me, and I cannot recommend it enough.

A professional and always engaging ICP-ACC virtual course. By the end of the course we had all experienced a shift towards a coaching mindset which we were able to benefit from in our day-to-day Agile Coaching work, thanks to the guidance and many practical exercises provided during the course.

I have enjoyed immensely the ICAgile Agile Coaching class. I am a knowledgeable practitioner and still got a ton of value out of it, and I think this has to do with how Lucia and Karen facilitate the class. I have engaged with the classmates on the knowledge presented, debating, integrating, and debriefing. I recommend you to join this class as your time, money, and effort will be worth it.

The ICAgile Agile Coaching class was an exceptional experience: it opened many, many doors in my head and made me realise how I want to work with people and how I can be a better help for them. It's amazing how I got all the answers to the questions I've been asking myself lately and wasn't aware that I will get them so soon.
