Develop your agility through a learning partnership
Supervision for agile coaches, scrum masters
agile people professionals
You want to bring out the best in your clients how do you reflect on where you are, without getting caught in group/people dynamics?
Who do you ask?
Other coaches, agile camp, conferences?
Is it impartial, ethical and non-judgemental?
What is the wider meaning of your work and how do you find that or keep yourself focused on it if you have?
You like to learn and coach others.
Being a coach you have to deal with
a web of relationships, process and roles.
You are busy dealing with clients.
You want to grow and develop as a coach.
As a young man I worked as a technical support manager in parallel processing got a degree in AI, explored the world and spent 15 years as a Buddhist monk. Having transitioned back to the workplace, became a scrum master, agile mindset coach, mindfulness-based executive and leadership coach. I know what it is like building a community with large groups of people using self-organization principles, facilitate teams of technical people, with diverse cultural backgrounds and develop your full human potential.
I have over twenty years of in-depth practise and understanding of mindfulness, self-inquiry along with the science of building trust, trauma, resilience, compassion, leadership and developmental understanding of the human condition.
We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.
I have been offering supervision, which I prefer to call a learning partnership, to a variety of facilitators, coaches and community leaders for nearly a decade. I am now offering coaching supervision to the agile community.
Whilst the word supervision is not familiar in the agile world and may seem against agile principles. It is common in the world of life/executive coaching and psychotherapy. Firstly, there is no way that I consider myself above you, this is two professional meeting within a reflective inquiry. It can include personal, professional growth as well as sharing about ethical and boundary problems in a complex organization where sharing may be difficult.
I work 1 to 1, with agile coaching teams and group of coaches. Most of my business has been remote and so I have the skills to do this online and enjoy working in person where possible ( I am English living in the Netherlands)

“Working with Amaranatho was a great experience. His supervision helped me digest a few things I'd been carrying with me. I'm left feeling more collected and centred in myself. Thank you”JeremyFreelance Scrum master
“Amaranatho clearly has a lot of experience in a variety of areas that informs his approach. He is effective in understanding quickly what the issue is and reflecting this back to me.
His listening skills go beyond the standard approaches and penetrate the issue. This leads to a quality of depth in questioning. I have learned a lot from this.
Amaranatho is very effective in uncovering what’s at the heart of the concern or issue while also being practical and clear when giving guidance.John
His approach is direct, strong and kind. There will be a a lot of clarity during the session that increases my own self reflective capacity.
He is uniquely skilled in his ability to to ask questions, give feedback and offer guidance.”
“Amaranatho helped me figure out underlaying issues on my own on the examples I brought to the discussion...he lead the discussion in a way that I answered/found new approaches on my own makes me praise his coaching skills.Alina - Agile coach
I was impressed by his ability to quickly understand context and underlaying issues and guide me to the heart of the matters. ”
