MEET COACH KARI MCLEOD

I am a Master Manifestor of Connection who introduces people and their ideas to one another and harnesses the synergy of relationships. As a leadership coach, facilitator and trainer, I serve people who desire to grow their personal and relationship agility as well as the agility of their organizations. Many of my individual and organizational clients recognize the importance of pervasive leadership and I am the Founder and Principal of a company by that name. I value engagement, joy, transparency (especially when it’s hard), and growing the creative from the reactive. I hold that the challenging and the sublime can exist at the same time and in the same place, and that we create amazing outcomes when we can stand in the fire together.

I have been committed to growing the abilities and skills of Scrum Masters since working at Fannie Mae in 2017. Before starting this job, I had received excellent training in agile team facilitation and coaching that prepared me to be a great Scrum Master. While I was at Fannie Mae, I saw that many of my colleagues had learned what they knew about their role at their CSM class and were yearning for more training, mentoring, and coaching. Scrum Masters are at the heart of pervasive leadership.

I am a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach and Associate Certified Coach with the International Coaching Federation. I hold that my clients have the answers to their current challenges and that they hold the power to create the future and the impact they want. My academic background includes a Ph.D. in History with a specialization in history of science and medicine from Yale University and a Master of Arts in Geography from Carleton University in Ottawa. I hold several Agile certifications and I draw on my work in Agile environments in my coaching, facilitation, and training engagements.

A tall redhead and I co-lead a self-organizing team of five. My husband works in an Agile environment and whetted my appetite for agility which has led to all sorts of awesome things. Our team consists of four daughters aged 10-17 and a 4-year-old standard poodle.

Agile Team Facilitation teaching

Facilitation is a cornerstone skill for successfully leading agile teams. As much of the work in agile teams occurs through face-to-face communication and involves collaboration in nearly all decisions, the ability to facilitate discussion is paramount to success.

In this 3-day Agile Team Facilitation course you will develop a greater sense of self-awareness, an improved ability to self-manage, and will be able to continually show-up powerfully with a strong presence.

The course is brought to you in partnership with TeamCatapult in the US and it holds the distinction of the first ever ICAgile accredited Facilitation class, back in 2012.

“Now I am much more comfortable using the tools Kay and Antoinette taught us. I can adapt and change virtual meetings with greater success. I would definitely recommend it – and doing it virtually was great fun!” – Zelda du Plessis
