At SOURCE we work with our clients as an agile coaching capability development partner.
The SOURCE Way involves tapping into and leveraging the deep and extensive agile community relationships we’ve built over years of work across Australia. These relationships provide SOURCE with access to the most talented and capable agility coaches and practitioners.
SOURCE works between two quite different ‘worlds’; the Agile Coaching Community and large clients with aspirations to uplift their agility.
The best agile coaches are hard to find and even more difficult to attract and retain. At SOURCE, we have a proven process to not only improve your organisations chances of attracting the best talent but also to efficiently screen and onboard agile coaches in a timely manner. Without the right mix of talented agile coaches, even the most well-coordinated change program is at risk of failure. The SOURCE Talent Process is designed to reduce this risk and set clients up for success.
Our SOURCE Incubator program is an agile coaching capability development program that runs over 12-weeks; it aims to accelerate an agile coach’s career, delivering a step-change in their capability. The SOURCE Incubator is different to traditional knowledge-based certified agile courses in that it combines field experiments, reflective practices, community networking and mentoring with face-to-face learning to deliver what we believe is the most comprehensive agile coaching course on the market today.
The world is constantly changing; the pace of disruption and level of competitiveness is ever increasing. Agility, the capability to respond quickly to disruption, is fast becoming a top priority for organisations; including government and not-for-profit sectors. An agile coach or agility coach enables the broader adoption of new ways to work that support higher levels of organisational agility. SOURCE can deliver your agile coaching as a service or support you to build a capability within your organisation.
Niall McShane is the founder and Managing Director of SOURCE. Niall is a coach at heart and throughout his career has applied coaching in many situations; sports, life, leadership and most recently agile and ways to work.
There are two consistent themes in all of the coaching Niall has delivered over the years; performance (getting the outcome) and growth (getting better). These two elements are central to his life and work at SOURCE.
Niall has built an agile coaching career through hiring, training, and mentoring others to be agile coaches. More recently he has done this whilst delivering agile coaching to a broad range of customers (business and technology) across large enterprises down to small start-ups.
A recent role saw Niall as the Head of a Coach Academy at a large (30,000 people) Australian corporate undergoing a full transformation of its way of working. He trained and established a mentoring approach for 70+ agile coaches from beginners to experts.
Our Source Founder and Principal, Niall McShane has led the development of multiple large agile coaching teams within some of Australia’s largest transformation programs; in this whitepaper he outlines his process for enabling organisations to build a high-performing agile coaching team.
Niall shares all the (hard-learned) lessons and provides practical advice on some of the biggest challenges sponsors face when embarking on building an agile coaching team:
• How to get clarity of the outcomes expected from an agile coach
• How to avoid hiring “imposter” agile coaches who talk-the-talk but don’t have the competency
• How to attract and retain talent as you go to market for coaches
• How to select and partner with consulting firms as you build your coaching capability
• How to design an agile coach performance management model (with example metrics)
