Michael K. Spayd

In a word, my professional work is about transformation.  I seem to be wired to help people--and systems--change. I am drawn to cutting edge ‘technologies’ for coaching and organization development.  

In 2010, I co-founded the Agile Coaching Institute with my business partner, Lyssa Adkins. We are fortunate to be able to travel the world (and at times, the skype-waves) teaching, mentoring and coaching Agile coaches, Scrum Masters, Kanban coaches and other agile leaders. 

I have worked as an organizational change coach and consultant for 20 years, working with Fortune 500,  small businesses and non-profits. For 11 years I have specialized in technology-oriented teams and associated enterprise transformation efforts, working with nearly 100 teams in that time. I am currently writing a book for Addison-Wesley on agile enterprise coaching.

I was trained as a Team and Organizational Coach and hold a Masters degree in psychology. I also trained in Co-Active leadership, executive coaching, and organizational behavior.  I am a Certified Organization and Relationship Systems Coach (ORSCC), a Certified Professional Facilitator (CPF), and a Certified Scrum Master (CSM).
