Mike Kaufman Systems Coach & Trainer

GENOS Certified Emotional Intelligence Practitioner, ICAgile ICP-CAT, Associate Certified Coach (ACC), Dare to Lead™ Trained, ORSCC, ICAgile ICP-ENT, ICAgile ICP-ATF, Certified Scrum Professional with Scrum Alliance
Mike helps organizations adopt agile practices by focusing on team dynamics, team creation, and individual coaching. Mike thoroughly enjoys training and has facilitated a number of different classes for different clients.

Mike also enjoys working with individuals on a one-on-one coaching basis, helping them break through stuck points to be the best possible version of themselves.

Specifically trained in group and systems dynamics, I help all parties have their voices heard. I ensure there is ample space for even the most marginalized voice, and help all parties discover and speak from voices they didn’t know they had. From there, I work with the group to identify needs, wants, fears, concerns, and desires that have not been met. I encourage and guide the parties to co-create a way forward. Through co-creation, everyone has a say and everyone has a vested interest in maintaining and supporting the new way forward. The connection is strengthened through this process and the relationship healed.

 

If you’re still reading, that means you want to know the nitty gritty about me. Here it is: I have over 20 years experience in the corporate world working in the software and IT industry. I have always been the curious type (some would say nosy, in my youth), and I have translated that curiosity into human systems and relationships. This started by diving into and embracing the Agile community, and has extended into professional coaching and mediation.

 

If you’re interested in credentials, I earned a BSc way back in University, a Six Signa Green Belt in my mid-career, and a bucket load of agile-related certifications such as CSP, ICP-ENT, ICP-CAT, KMP, among others. After receiving the Agile Coaching Certification from ICAgile, I moved into professional coaching. I am proud to be an Organization and Systems Relationship Certified Coach, along with an Accredited Certified Coach from International Coaching Federation. I am (almost) a Qualified Mediator from the ADR Institute of Ontario (pending designation).

 

But all that mumbo-jumbo aside, suffice to say, I am a lifelong learner. I bring a wealth of knowledge and experience and use it effectively to help you design a solution that is best for you and your situation.

  1. Q: What if I'm shy and don't like interacting with people?
    A: Our virtual Learning Events are highly interactive and we make them safe and comfortable for even the most shy people! Our facilitators are experts in creating an online environment where everyone is encouraged to participate without forcing you to do things or say things that might be uncomfortable. This is not like school. This is not like a university lecture. This is not like a high-pressure business meeting.
  2. Q: What if I'm just coming to get a certification?
    A: Okay! We know lots of people who have come to our virtual Learning Events in the past to only achieve a valuable certification. They have told us in no uncertain terms that it was still the best "course" they have ever attended, they learned far more than they expected to, and that they were excited to apply what they learned as soon as possible. Sure, you can attend just for the certification!
  3. Q: What do I need to do to prepare for the online course?
    A:There are three things you must do beforehand to prepare for BERTEIG online Learning Events.
    1. Complete pre-work at training.berteig.com
    2. Set up Zoom for video conferencing
    3. Get familiar with Miro whiteboard collaboration
    For most Learning Events, there is some pre-work which must be completed before the class begins. Failure to do so, will mean rescheduling and application of the $150 Rescheduling Fee.
    Check the description of your Learning Event to see if there are any special requirements.
  4. Q: Do I need a laptop or can I use my phone?
    A: You will need a laptop or desktop for the BERTEIG Learning events. Handheld devices such as tablets and phones are not suitable for the interactive nature of the classes.
  5. Q: Do you provide copies of your slides?
    A: First of all, we usually don't use slides in our Learning Events - instead we have a moderate number of handouts and these are accessed in one place using the BERTEIG Learning Management System (LMS).
    The only exception to this is the SAFe training classes where we are a delivery partner and the materials come directly from Scaled Agile - in those classes there are typically a lot of slides to go through in the training.
  6. Q: When does my Learning Event start and finish?
    A: Normally our Learning Events start at 9:00am sharp and end by 4:30pm (Eastern Time +5:00 GMT). Some Learning Events may have other schedules. Please read the page about your particular Learning Event to know exactly what time it starts and ends.
  7. Q: Do you offer your virtual Learning Events as private sessions?
    A: Yes. Please contact sales@berteig.com for more information and to receive a quote. Typically 'in-house' virtual sessions are scheduled six or more weeks after a contract has been signed - please ask for a quote as soon as possible if you think your need is urgent!
    We can also create custom online Learning Events for an additional fee. We even do train-the-trainer programs for larger organizations who wish to leverage in-house staff.
    Generally, we avoid doing the CSM, CSPO and LSMPO Learning Events as private virtual classes, and we encourage you to attend with your group to a public scheduled session.
  8. Q: What if I have an emergency and have to leave for some/part/most of the virtual class?
    A: It depends on the emergency. If it is a medical emergency for yourself or a family member, we will work with you to either re-schedule or refund your money depending on circumstances. We don't have a fixed policy about this.
    For work related emergencies, we will not issue a refund, but will offer a spot to you at a future course at a 50% discount rate.
  9. Q: Do you recommend any supplemental learning resources?
    A: Yes. We have a list of recommended reading for agility that is organized by type of BERTEIG Learning Event.
  1. Q: Does BERTEIG partner with others to advertise and deliver training?
    A: Yes. We partner with training resellers who can reach a different audience than the companies we normally serve. If you have a question about our resellers or if you are interested in establishing a partnership relationship please contact sales@berteig.com.
  2. Q: I am a trainer myself. Can I list my courses on this website?
    A: No. This is one type of partnership that we are considering but have not yet established. If you are interested in this type of partnership, please contact sales@berteig.com.
