Description


World Class Experiential Training

Eliassen’s coaching workshops primarily consist of hands-on activities done in diversified groups of 4-6 people. Groups are reformed multiple times throughout the workshops. The workshops are infused with the combined experience of one of the world’s largest and most experienced Agile Coaching organizations.

Certification

The ICP-ATF is one of two Continuing Learning Certifications (CLCs) on the Agile Coaching Track. It focuses primarily on the mindset and role of an agile team facilitator, while also providing group facilitation tools and techniques for effectively designing meetings and workshops that both engage the entire audience and drive towards agreed-upon outcomes. Through obtaining this certification, the learner will develop an appreciation for the art of facilitation as key to fostering collaboration and enabling self-organizing teams. In addition, participants will update their facilitator toolkits and gain practical experience leveraging them to facilitate specific agile practices towards successful team outcomes.
