The 6-day ICP-ACC training is one of two certified courses on the Agile Coaching track from ICAgile. It focuses primarily on the mindset, roles, and responsibilities of an Agile Coach.
The participants will be able to differentiate between mentoring, facilitating, professional coaching, and teaching, and will also gain the skills needed to create a safe environment for meaningful collaboration and healthy conflict resolution within an agile team.
