This book outlines how coaches and leaders use Agile frameworks and coaching psychology to create behavioural change and to lay the foundations of success. Using the latest coaching approaches from executive, team, and systemic team coaching, the book shows how coaches can use Agile frameworks at the level of mindset and behaviours.

Laura demonstrates well-known frameworks such as Scrum, DSDM, and Lean Startup to support change and success. Readers will learn about the Six Lenses of Systemic Team Coaching including the individual mindset, interpersonal skills, team working and collaboration skills, and awareness of the external business environment, to create true business agility.

“Laura creatively explores the connection of individuals to the whole through the Six Lenses of Systemic Team Coaching, weaves in both theory and practice, and grounds herself in the agile mindset, leaving flexibility for professional coaches to decide how they will apply this learning.”

“The worlds of agile project management and coaching have evolved largely separately — yet each has much to learn from the other. Here we have a pragmatic and readily applicable approach to integrating both concept and practice across these two evolving domains.”

David Clutterbuck, Special Ambassador, European Mentoring and Coaching Council

“Acquiring Agility requires deep disruptive change and so deeper understanding, understanding the needs, seeing the value and therefore making it a part of you is essential. It is a coach’s responsibility to help people, teams and organisations in that journey. Read this book and cherry pick what helps you out. Enjoy!”

Arie van Bennekum, co-author of the Agile Manifesto
