Lyssa Adkins
President Emerita at Agile Coaching Institute.
Richmond, VA USA but work all over the world


Lyssa Adkins is a passionate player in the Agile Coaching profession. She develops Agile Coaches to be the skilled and visionary change leaders that their organizations need, and that Agile calls for. In 2010, she co-founded the Agile Coaching Institute to answer that call. Since then, ACI has up-leveled the skills of close to 6,000 Agile Coaches and strategized with their organizations to develop Agile Coaching as a core capability for Agile transformation. She is the author of Coaching Agile Teams, which is still a top-10 Agile book many years after publication. When you meet, she is likely to truly listen to you. 


Lyssa likes to explore agile coaching, agile transformation, adult human development, human systems dynamics, societal change, organizational change, the benefits and costs of being human in the workplace, facilitating intense conflict, the role of nature, and books of all sorts. She tends toward a balance of the provocative and practical, and likes to make sure she really understands someone's question before answering.


Lyssa holds an alphabet soup of certifications: Certified Enterprise Coach (CEC), ICAgile Expert in Agile Coaching (ICE-AC), Project Management Professional (PMP), Six Sigma Green Belt (SSGB), Organization and Relationship Systems Certified Coach (ORSCC).  She is also a trained Co-Active Coach and Leader.
