I started as an Agile trainer in the fall of 2008 when I worked at IBM Canada. I became one of the trainers in Ottawa and Toronto for the two-day “Disciplined Agile Workshop” course that IBM offered to ramp up the agile knowledge in the company. Since then, I delivered hundreds of hours of training in both public and on-site Agile related courses. Through Pyxis Technologies, I deliver courses targeted to various audiences such from team members, to product owners and management teams.
Over the years, my approach has evolved from simply delivering the content in the training materials to using an inquiry based approach which generates a lot more interactions and conversations around the content. As a trainer I am committed to taking the participants where they are at and ensuring they get as much value and applied learning as they can.
Agile Training by practitioners for practitioners
At Pyxis /campus, we offer training in which those seeking new ways of doing things can meet expert consultants and become better equipped to adopt Agile methods.
Our playful approach lends itself perfectly to experimentation and integration of new concepts. But beyond know-how, Pyxis /campus favours the development of self-awareness in software management and development professionals as well as production teams.
Our trainers are also experienced consultants capable of teaching the latest and best practices and sharing the experience they’ve acquired in the various projects they’ve been involved in.
If you are looking for high-quality Agile training, I invite you to visit the Pyxis /campus website where we offer an array of courses covering all your agile training needs.
Tribal Leadership Training
The book “Tribal Leadership” by Dave Logan, John King, and Halee Fischer-Wright introduces five stages that represent a range of behaviors that tribes (i.e., groups of 20 or more people) act and think together. These stages range from stage 1 where “Life sucks” to stage 5 where “Life is great”. Most project teams (and most workplaces) live in the three middle stages.
As a CultureSync Approved Tribal Leader and through my work as an Agile coach, I have a lot of applied knowledgeable of Tribal Leadership and on how to help teams evolve through the stages.
Upon request, through Pyxis /campus, we can work together to design a custom one or two-day Tribal Leadership training course to meet your needs.
