Oath for an Agile Coach

Welcome to the Agile Coaches’ Oath.  You’ll find an oath for an Agile coach modeled after the Hippocratic Oath, as well as a place to sign and comment. Enjoy!

As your Agile coach, I pledge that

I am driven by your goals. Your success is my success.

I am your guest. I will only offer my coaching services by invitation.

I share knowledge. I will gladly share my knowledge for those who are to follow me.

I respect learnings. I will respect the prior learnings of those who came before me, as well as the learnings that will come after me.

I don’t know everything. I will not be ashamed to say “I have no idea”, and I will offer “let me find out more or find someone else to help you.”

I offer compassion. I will enter environments, vow to heal them where I may, and offer compassion where it is the most needed.

I seek a balance between hand-holding and letting go. I will apply all measures which are required to help those in need, avoiding the double traps of over-nurturing and giving up.

I value discretion. I will respect the privacy of the organizations that I help, the teams, and the individuals on the teams.

I help people. I do not help a burndown chart improve, or the team velocity spike. Instead, I help a suffering team and/or organization whose current state may affect a person’s family and economic stability.

I prevent dysfunction. I seek out root causes wherever possible.

I serve others. I am a Servant Leader. My obligations are to serve individuals, teams, organizations, and the community.

Shall I not violate this oath, may I long experience the joy of coaching those who seek my help.

I may at times be silent even if I know the solution, if that is required for my team to improve. There are more, but these two are important in my view.

I am all in 100 %. I like that - "I am a servant leader" statement is written on this list because without it, I feel that other statements will easily be watered down to fit any scenario that will defeat the purpose of this oath. Overall, I think this is a great artifact to always come back to within the Agile community.

An excellent effort, and I'll be delighted to join the pledge. I suggeest it might be improved slightly by reminding ourselves "why" we coach in the first place. It's not just about the team. It's actually about the impact that the team has on its customers and their world. Put succintly, it's about delight for customers and joy in work. In keeping with the style of the Oath, perhaps something like: "I believe in starting with why: customer delight and joyful work matter most."
