Coaching Paradox - Should a coach use “Command & Control” techniques to transform agile teams into “Servant Leaders”

22 views

Published on

One of the classic dilemmas faced by Agile coaches is how to transform teams who have been traditionally using and following a “Command & Control” working style into a self organizing, self lead "Servant Leadership" style.

This is an onerous task for any coach and there is a lot of excess baggage accumulated over the years, which needs to be shed. Coaches face major challenges to bring this change and may get frustrated when results are unsuccessful. This might lead to doubting the traditional coaching techniques and the coach can get easily tempted to apply "Command and Control" techniques to bring about this change. This is a classic paradox and which brings us to an important question "Shouldn’t a coach practice what is being preached"? or do we conclude that any path breaking or radical transformations can only be achieved by applying "Command and Control techniques"? This presentation will try to seek solutions to this classic dilemma.
