Niall McShane

Coach at Responsive Agile Coaching

Melbourne, Australia

I work as an agent of change, promoting agility through education, coaching and modelling of new behaviours.

Co-designing new ways and systems of work based on agile principles are my usual deliverables. To achieve change outcomes I draw upon my extensive practitioner network and extensive experience in building internal capability to support scaled transformation programs.

My consulting approach is to disrupt inefficient as-is practices using a gentle but influential style that embeds new values and principles of work. My goal being the development of a high-performing sustainable lean-agile delivery culture.

I am always about results (delivering) and have been a coach my whole working life, firstly in professional sports, then leadership and for the last 10 years, agile transformation. Coaching is the core capability which supports the advisor/consultant roles I perform.

I have a passion for helping others grow and learn through community and peer-to-peer learning. Hosting a private agile coaching community running events and fostering collaboration in a safe open environment is my way of giving back and paying forward.

As a professionally certified coach with the International Coaching Federation I blend mindset/behavioural coaching into all my work with executives, teams and individuals.

Responsive Agile Coaching - how to use meaningful conversations to accelerate coaching outcomes
Lifestyle Press
September 01, 2020
How to Accelerate Your Coaching Outcomes with Meaningful Conversations With Foreword by Arie van Bennekum, Co-Author of The Agile Manifesto In Responsive Agile Coaching Niall McShane draws on over a decade of agile coaching experience to document a clear and well-researched model that lifts the lid on how agile coaching actually works. The book starts by defining what the role of agile coach has become in recent times before putting forward a field-tested and theoretically sound model for conducting agile coaching conversations. Packed full of real life stories from authentic coaching work you'll laugh and cry with the characters as you learn what it takes to be one of the best agile coaches in the current market. Drawing from areas such as neuroscience, mindfulness, behavioral psychology and unlearning theory this book is focused on when and how to have conversations that matter with clients during times of change. The central point in the book argues that agile coaches are more than the sum of their competencies; they need to execute the right "moves and steps" during coaching conversations. The model Niall outlines is built around one moment that matters in all agile coaching conversations; Niall calls this the responsive moment. Sensing this moment and responding in a way that best serves the needs of the client and the organization is what the book guides you to be able to do (consistently). The Responsive Agile Coaching model is a dynamic flow-based approach to delivering agile coaching as a service. It dispels the thinking that agile coaching needs to be delivered by a person with the title of agile coach and aims to "open source" it as a skill anyone can develop. This book puts the 'coaching' back into agile coaching by providing a model to balance the agile expert and coaching elements of agile coaching. Responsive Agile Coaching is part theory, part practical guide book and part story telling. The book has been written to cater for readers from all backgrounds who are looking to change the way they work; managers, leaders, change agents as well as agile coaches will find insights and inspiration in this book.
