Agile Leadership: Coaching Great Teams
When adopting agile methods, many project managers find it difficult to move from a traditional, control-based model to a servant-leader based model. This paradigm challenges managers to their core because agility demands a coaching-driven mindset rather than the classic "I'm-in-charge" view. Explore the core aspects of agile leadership and team coaching with Bob Galen as you look at leadership from an agile perspective. Bob discusses "coaching up" the team as part of an agile adoption strategy and offers a conversation framework you can immediately use at work-and at home. Learn the fundamental coaching patterns and anti-patterns as you find out when to step in to help and when to be patient. You'll have the opportunity to practice a conversation or two and hone your new coaching skills.
