Industry training and books are holding you back. You can’t study your way to more courage, influence, or certainty. Chris knows how to simplify, build, and test these skills. His digital and in-person experiences carve away decades of bad mindsets and habits. Everything you need to go further is already within you. Become your own hero – a leader of vision, discipline, resilience, and true agility.

Meet the limitless you.

Chris’ programs reveal your unique voice and unblock your decisiveness, courage, and confidence. You are capable of way more than you think you are. But no certification, book, or conference will get you there. Undo the limiting ideas and practices taught in our industry. Let our digital and in-person experiences unleash your inner hero.

Episode 225 – Agile As Artistry

Episode 225 – Agile As Artistry

If you want to follow the agile or scrum manual or worship the rules, you can’t be an artist.

An artist expresses their opinion, their creative contribution, or their vision with the tools of their medium. By definition, your art must be an original. Nobody else could make the exact same thing. Artistry involves discovery, failure, and risk. What you make might not work right away. It might require sweat and continuous refinement. It might force you to admit that you don’t know everything. It might take you to unexplored and dangerous places.

Doesn’t that sound like agile?

Without these elements, you’re applying a recipe. You’re blindly implementing best practices and rules. There is no room to create something new that serves the distinct character of your team, your client, or their customer.

To say that The Forge is not just a training but rather, an experience, is an understatement.
The challenges faced, the friendships made, the potential that has been unleashed went well beyond any expectation I had. The Forge has elevated my coaching abilities and helped me to become a better version of myself. I could not recommend it more highly for coaches at any point on their journey.

– Ken, The Forge Student

I joined The Forge to learn skills to make me a better consultant. What I didn’t expect, was to become a better self. This course taught me so much about myself, what it means to serve others, and how to do so effectively
