Talk conducted by Antoinette Coetzee and Judith Mills at Agile2018
How often have you heard agilists say managers "don't get Agile"? At the same time not a lot of agilists have been in management roles, so could we also say "Agile coaches don't get management"?
Let's face it, agilists and traditional management look at the world very differently. Yet if we as coaches want to help create agile enterprises we not only have to understand the world a manager lives in, we need to develop compassion with them as individuals.
If you are keen to develop your ability to support managers on their Agile journey, join Judith and Antoinette, two Agile coaches who have been in management positions themselves. Let's look at our own biases around power and authority and how that influences our interactions. Expect to walk away with a deeper understanding of the specific challenges managers face when transitioning to an Agile way of working, increased compassion for managers and a coaching approach to truly meet them where they are.
