I had a lot of fun recording this episode with Vasco. We covered the very broad topic of agile coaching. I really liked that we were able to deep dive agile coaching and discuss how it ties back to Scrum Masters and their role on Scrum Teams. I really wanted to make the point that coaching is a career path and a difficult one at that. Ultimately, we are here to reveal insights about the systems of work without resolving them. To me, this is the highest form of coaching. I hope you enjoy this episode and give Vasco’s podcast a try.
In this episode you’ll discover:
- How to approach working with new teams
- What to do with advanced teams
- How to start your own coaching journey
