Cherie Silas is an ICF Professional Certified Coach (PCC) and a Scrum Alliance Certified Enterprise Coach (CEC) who has been coaching, leading, training, and mentoring people for most of her career. She has a strong desire to help people arrive at the place they define as success in both personal and professional life. Her goal is to invest the experience and talents she has gathered through years of learning, often times the hard way, into people whom she hopes will become greater than she can ever dream to be.
She has a deep background in organizational management with a proven track record of people development. In 2011, when she discovered agile, the mindset behind the values and principles so deeply resonated with her that her entire career path shifted.
She first served as a scrum master and became so passionate about helping people learn and grow as agile practitioners that she was compelled to start training and coaching.
Cherie has since worked as a consultant assisting several Fortune 500 clients with large agile transformations. She has trained over 1,000 agilists and maintains several mentoring relationships with scrum masters who are passionate about continuous growth. Contributions to the agile community at large include presenting regularly at conferences and blogging about agile coaching topics.
When not coaching agile organizations, Cherie can be found volunteering as an executive coach with The Coaching Fellowship, a non-profit organization that works with rising young women leaders all over the world at crucial points in their careers to help them manifest the change they want to be, and see, in the world. She also does pro-bono coaching with The Center for Non-Profit Coaching which offers coaching services to executives and employees of non-profit organizations.
Cherie’s life mission that drives every interaction with every individual she encounters is simply this: To leave you better than I found you with each encounter.
