  • Proven self-growth in Agile, Lean and coaching skills.
  • Knowledgeable and cognizant of the differences between coaching, mentoring, facilitating and teaching, and when each approach is applicable.
  • A track record of success in working with teams, managers and senior leaders and ability to resolve business challenges at the system level.

  • A working knowledge of all three and extensive knowledge and experience in at least one of the following:
  • Agile software development

  • A background in Agile coaching in a financial services or big technology organization
  • ICF ACC accreditation or above, equivalent level from other bodies or equivalent experience in professional coaching.
  • Experience partnering with project management offices or product delivery offices, helping them to deliver value using an Agile mindset
  • An understanding of several ways in which Agile can be scaled at large organizations (e.g. SAFe, LeSS, DaD, or other less formal models) and a proven track record of coaching teams as they scale
  • Adaptability and willingness to learn new skills and ways of working that fit the unique needs of Bloomberg
