Distansutbildningar nu tillgängliga

Ta tillfället i akt att via distanskurser öka din kunskap och dina förmågor!

Våra populära utbildningar finns nu även som publika och företagsinterna distanskurser (remote training).

Vi har tagit vår kunskap och erfarenhet och vidareutvecklat ett antal av våra populära utbildningar, även certifieringsgrundande, till ett format som gör att man på distans kan genomföra kurserna. Alla kurserna är fortfarande lika engagerande och spännande med teori och övningar/diskussioner gemensamt och i grupper. Kurserna har visat sig vara mycket uppskattade när vi genomfört dessa tidigare hos våra kunder.

Så här tycker en tidigare deltagare:

I loved how well prepared the exercises were and how seamlessly you used all the options of the video conference tool, like the breakout rooms for more intimate discussions, and the raising hand option.

I thought you were very clear on what was going on, how to support us by pedagogically walking us through what would happen next (like being thrown into and out of rooms!). Also how important it is to see people’s reactions.

You’re always unbelievably well-prepared and full of insightful theory matched by fun and thoughtful exercises.

Remote collaboration at Crisp

The Coronavirus has touched our daily lives. For those of us who can work remotely, it has meant more virtual meetings, breakfasts and coffees than we’re used to. To help you and us, we’ve collected our experiences into an infographic for those who lead or facilitate remote meetings. You’ll find the infographic and more tips and tools on our remote collaboration website.

We help you with inspiration from methods that we’ve used over the years from distributed mob programming to remote retrospectives, tips for teams, and articles from trusted sources.

In the coming weeks we’ll keep sharing the resources that will help you the most. In the meantime if you need help or support for remote collaboration we’d be happy to chat with you, remotely of course!

David Marquet is visiting Crisp

Servant leadership is easy to understand but not easy to do.

But David Marquet knew how to put it into practice when he “Turned the ship around”, the amazing story of how he empowered the crew on the USS submarine Santa Fé, which made them transform from “worst to first” in the fleet. This is described in Davids’s book, Turn The Ship Around.

A powerful example was changing the language from command and control to sharing intent. And for the crew to go from asking for permission to stating intent. This transformed the culture onboard the Sant Fé. 

The source for the transformation was the language used. Language is at the heart of leadership. 

In his new book, Leadership is Language, which is released in February, David explores the power of leading with language. We can really recommend the book. If you want to learn more then David is visiting Crisp for a one day course and book signing event February the 20th.

Congratulations to Yassal on becoming an ICF Associate Certified Coach

In December, our colleague Yassal Sundman received her credentials from ICF and she is now an ICF Associate Certified Coach. We caught up with her to congratulate her and ask her to tell us more about the credential and what it means to her.

Congratulations on your certification!

Thank you! It was an amazing way to end a great year full of learning, insights and new experiences.

What does the certification mean to you in practice?

It helps me strengthen and improve the skills I need to work with my clients effectively as a team and organization coach. The training and certification focus on the following core competencies:

  • Demonstrating ethical practice
  • Embodying a coaching mindset
  • Establishing and maintaining agreements
  • Cultivating trust and safety
  • Maintaining presence
  • Listening actively
  • Evoking awareness
  • Facilitating client growth

Definitely skills that you need when you’re working with companies to help them achieve their goals!

The training also supports me in coaching individuals. This happens as part of my consulting contract at a company, or by coaching private clients. I work with individuals in areas such as:

  • Leadership
  • Goal setting
  • Stress management
  • Self esteem
  • Relationship management

We’re actually a growing group of consultants at Crisp who have completed an accredited training program. My colleagues are:

We’re offering a free breakfast seminar in February for people who would like to experience a 30 minute individual coaching session.

What do you need to do to become an Associate Certified Coach?

In general, it means that you’ve completed at least 60 hours of training, and have 100+ hours of practice as a coach. The certification process also includes an assessment of a coaching session and passing a coach knowledge assessment. 

In practice I’ve completed two accredited programs offered by Håkan Schyllert at Leapfrog AB. The first in 2017 and the second in 2019, for a combined 120 hours of training. I have also worked with a wonderful mentor coach for the past year, Sara Widlert and attended her 3 day training in group coaching. 

Can you tell us a little bit about ICF?

I’ll just quote from their website: « The International Coach Federation (ICF) is the leading global organization dedicated to advancing the coaching profession by setting high standards, providing independent certification and building a worldwide network of trained coaching professionals. »

ICF focuses on providing value for the client through coaching, which they define as: « partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential. »

What’s the difference between being an Associated Certified Coach and an Agile Coach?

Professional coaching is part of the Agile Coach’s role. You can think of it as one of the many hats that an Agile Coach has at their disposal. If I generalize, I’d say that there’s disproportionate weight given to the ‘Agile’ part of ‘Agile Coach’. Focusing on Agile methods, processes and tools gives the Agile Coach breadth. Honing the professional coaching skills are essential to the ‘Coach’ part of ‘Agile Coach’ and provide the depth needed for coaches to work with clients regardless of methodology or process.

What’s next for you?

This has always been about helping me be the best team and organization coach for my clients. I will keep working on honing my skills and gaining new ones. I’m currently taking an online course in the Science of Well-being, and will be attending a 3 day workshop on Radical Collaboration in the Spring, to name a few.

When it comes to professional coaching, I’m actively working towards the next level of certification: Professional Certified Coach. I’ve completed the basic training requirements, and will continue coaching to gain the practical coaching experience needed to become certified (500+ hours of coaching). I will also keep working with a mentor coach and attending training programs and workshops to deepen my practice.

Crisp welcomes Joshua Kerievsky and the Modern Agile Workshop back!

We are very happy to welcome Joshua Kerievsky and his 2 day workshop around Modern Agile back at Crisp again!

Modern Agile consists of four principles, reverse engineered from what highly successful companies do in order to get a safe and happy workplace and create great outcomes. These principles are Make People Awesome, Make Safety a Prerequisite, Experiment & Learn Rapidly and Deliver Value Continuously.

In this 2-day workshop, you’ll learn about the essential practice of psychological safety, what it means to have a just culture, how obsessing on making people awesome is far better than worrying about competitors, how to build a culture of experimentation and learning and the art of delivering value continuously.
