The Spiderman Antidote to the Anti-Patterns of Agile Leaders

616 views

Published on

This workshop is targeted at people who are not new to Agile and have been working in an Agile environment for about a year. This has allowed enough time for insights into potential leadership anti-patterns to emerge, their own and/or other people in their environment.

Many leaders come into an Agile environment and feel unsure by a perceived loss of control. Successful Agile leaders empower the teams and acknowledge that the teams can choose their own work and solve their own issues. As leaders, they need to be able to pull themselves out of the detail and focus on supporting the teams and know that if the team succeeds they do too. Leading in an Agile environment is all about mindset and understanding what motivates people.

This interactive workshop will unpack the superhero archetypes of Agile leaders with their related Agile leadership anti-patterns. This workshop includes the superhero archetypes of Agile leaders.
