As agile coaches, we work to help teams on their journey towards creating an awesome identity of a high performing team, built on values of transparency, collaboration and courage. We help them discover their team values, to focus on a team vision, to pair, to swarm, to collaborate, and to experiment towards high performance. Why is it, that when we’re working as a group of coaches, we often change our identity from team champion to individual runaway coach? We forget to create our own team vision, working agreements, and ways of working as a team.

In this talk, hear how a team of 3 agile coaches had the courage to lead by example and become a high performing agile coaching team. Learn how they committed to work as a team and how creating simple things like a team charter changed our own behaviours and mindsets. Hear about how we took an experimental approach to our own ways of working, and we’ll tell you about our learnings along the way.
