1. I love this idea but why is this different from Agile communities in Linkedin and Facebook?
As I’ve mentioned above, these free Agile communities come with several problems. This is because it attracts toxic people that hinder development instead of helping others out. Our premium community will be unique. We will come together in real time. We will have real Lean Coffee sessions where we will be able to tackle the most important topics voted by the community. No other typical community offers this (trust me, I know!).
2. Isn’t it a bit overpriced?
Not really, it’s actually way too low for what I usually charge in my sessions. I usually charge 250€ (2 hours) for 1:1 Coaching. In this case for 50€ you will have me for 2 sessions (4 hours) in a very cozy environment.
Think about it. How much would you pay for a conference ticket? Or any simple workshop. Like I mentioned before you would pay easily 1000€ for one single conference. Here you get access to a premium group 24 times a year, half of the price. With people discussing the most important topics not just random stuff.
But if it came to you as a bit overpriced, that’s good.
The idea is to create a community of people that are eager to learn. This community prefers quality over quantity. There will be a lot of people saying they have the same in their local community, they do not need to pay to have the same.
Once again, being a premium community I truly believe the quality will be better than any local community.
3. Will the topics always be the same?
Each session will have a unique topic, chosen by the community. In the beginning of the session, we will vote the ones that are the most important ones. These sessions will be recorded so that everyone has access to them. This will help the community to tackle always new topics.
In case new people join and want to discuss again the same topics they will be forward to past sessions.
4. Is your community still small?
Yes. But as I said, we aim to attract quality over quantity. A smaller group is also a big advantage to you since you can have a closer connection with me—thus boosting your learning and development.
5. Do you have another option for a more personal career growth?
I understand that there might be people that don’t do well in communities. If you’re looking for a more personal approach, you might want to take a look at The ScrumMaster Growth 1:1 Coaching
which contains something more personal and premium. We’ll be having several 1:1 coaching sessions where I focus solely on your growth as a ScrumMaster.
