Myron Parks joins the conversation of coaching leaders and managers on their new role in an Agile environment. A lot of necessary conversation is missed on the leadership and manager level when organizations are making the Agile Jounrey. Join us as Myron and I discuss the transition of this new role, and how to succeed with their teams.
Rob Legatie joins me in a discussion about management and servant leadership. Highlighting the important of any leader providing service to their teams. It is not enough to form Agile Teams; management has to be a servant leader in order to reach the success that Agile can provide. Being a Servant Leader embodies the arts of active listening, empathy, trust and many more soft skills that support and encourage Agile Teams.
The fundamentals of Agile must be learned and understood before they can broken away. The Agile principles are often glanced over. This creates a gap in organizations journey to achieve an Agile Mindset. Everyone is running to achieve success from the Agile principles and values; but that success can not be attained without doing the work.
The pursuit of Agile is a journey, not a transformation. There are several attributes that contribute to receiving the benefits of Agile; making the journey your own, intervals of checkpoints, feedback and having a guide on the journey. The process to having an Agile Mindset is an on-going journey; not a transformation.
