How do I become an AgilityHealth Facilitator (AHF)?
In many cases, our clients designate whom they wish to become an AgilityHealth Facilitator (AHF). The Facilitator plays a crucial role in the organization's utilization of AgilityHealth by facilitating team retrospectives, including the TeamHealth Retrospective.
The TeamHealth Retrospective aims to help teams reflect on their last quarter or release and improve during the next quarter. Team members complete an assessment either prior to or during the retrospective. During the retrospective session, Facilitators will analyze the radar developed from the team's results and review the team's textual responses. Having real conversations about these items will allow the Facilitator and the team to build actionable growth plans to be worked on by the team and leadership over the next quarter.
A Facilitator's goals include providing a positive retrospective experience, creating a solid growth plan with the team and obtaining valuable feedback for team growth. Here is what a Facilitator's journey looks like.
