" The subtitle of this book says it is for 'ScrumMasters, Agile Coaches, and Project Managers, ' however, its guidance and advice extend to anyone associated with an agile (Scrum) team. It will also certainly help team members better understand their relationship to the work ScrumMasters, agile coaches, and project managers do for the team. And, beyond this, the book can be valuable to anyone working in a coaching capacity with any group of people, expanding the book's application beyond agile-based efforts." --Scott Duncan, Agile Coach" Lyssa explains brilliantly how skills from professional coaching can be applied to coaching agile software development teams. What I love about this book is how Lyssa brings practical advice to life by relating it to everyday experiences we all recognize. An essential guide for every agile manager's bookshelf." --Rachel Davies, author of Agile Coaching " As I read this book I could actually hear Lyssa's voice, guiding me and sparking precious 'a-ha moments.' This truly is the next best thing to having an experienced and wise coach sitting by your side, helping you be the best coach you can be for your team." --Kris Blake, agile coach " Lyssa Adkins presents agile coaching in a gentle style with firm underpinnings. She resolves the paradox of how coaching can help a team to self-organize, and shows how a nurturing environment can push teams to perform better than ever." --Bill Wake, Industrial Logic, Inc. " I love Lyssa's three qualities of an agile coach--loving, compassionate, uncompromising--sweet. Every chapter offers a compelling blend of philosophy and action, framework and freedom, approach and avoidance, as any agile book should. Coaching Agile Teams is a good candidate to become dog-eared on my desktop rather than looking good on my bookshelf. The depth and quality of expertise that Lyssa sought, sampled, and sounded out along her own coaching journey have been synthesized in her own voice of experience." --Christopher Avery, Responsibility Process mentor, www.LeadershipGift.com " In my experience with agile projects, the agile coach is one of the most important roles to get right. Coaching Agile Teams by Lyssa Adkins gives the details and practical insights for what it takes to be a great agile coach." --Dave Hendricksen, software architect, Thomson-Reuters " I remember the first time I met Lyssa at a Scrum gathering in Orlando, and realized very quickly how inspirational she would become in the agile community. This book encapsulates her thoughts and ideas into a fantastic literary work that, I believe, fills a void in our community. We knew the role of a coach was needed, but for a long time we were not sure what that role actually was. We struggled as a community to explain what to do, when to do it, and what to do next. Lyssa not only collates all of the things we as coaches aspire to be, but has provided some great advice with realistic direction on how to be the best coach you can be for your team." --Martin Kearns, CSC + CST, Principal Consultant, Renewtek ply.

Update 1/14 - I'm rescinding my original review and making this into a five star review. I should have read the entire thing before reviewing. Although the language is still a bit flowery and long for my taste, the examples, stories, how-to dialogues, and contributions from others is simply stellar. A very valuable book for learning about the essence of agile coaching. It does a great job in peeling away the layers to the onion on this tricky, important concept.
You can read it from front to back or pick any random point in the book and you will be pleased - each page has something of value.
Check out Lyssa Adkins training through the agile coaching institute also - to apply some learning here.
Each chapter in the meat of the book is a different coaching role or perspective: Mentor, Facilitator, Teacher, Problem Solver, Navigator, and Collaboration Conductor. Many of them revolve around the idea that the team is on their own journey towards their own level of performance. Rather than the coach drag the team towards the coach's vision of where the team should be, the coach's job is to help the team move from step to step sometimes leading, more often facilitating.
A specific concept that Lyssa suggested that I had never consciously considered was the types of coaching that should be practiced at different times during the sprint or engagement. For instance, we might want to steer the team or introduce ideas or tactics in the middle of the sprint this is probably not the most productive role at this point. There are times to coach at the team level and times to coach at the individual level.
The book is a little mushy or soft at times, so you might have to trudge through at various points. A lot of it is common sense after the fact, but having it said explicitly keeps it in the back of my head more than in the past.
I recommend this book to all roles on teams, not just Coaches. Many of the ideas and content are the soft skills that make great teams.
