This week, Dan Neumann welcomes
his colleague Michael Guiler to today’s episode.
In this episode, they will be
answering questions regarding several Agile topics, such as
leadership, effective communication, Team readiness, best
practices, motivation, and transparency, among others. Join this
fun and insightful conversation with Dan and Mike!
- What is a good-to-go technique to help
leadership transition from being tactical to being more servant
- Enable people who are closer to the work to
make decisions in their field.
- Ask questions instead of giving
- Rewire the communication path to be more
practical and direct rather than following a hierarchy where there
are chances of getting “lost in translation.”
- What does a Team that is ready look
- A Team that is ready is open to a conversation,
they have an Agile Mindset where they know they need help, and they
are open to discussing it.
- An Agile Mindset is keeping the curiosity high
at all times and the readiness to run an experiment.
- What are best practices for?
- Best practices are just resources but certainly
not “the way” of doing things correctly.
- Best practices are ways that have been used
successfully in the past, and when used again they are not assuring
their efficacy; a Team needs to test them to see if they apply to
that particular situation.
- What does it take to help leadership
transitioning to the model of motivation that Daniel H. Pink
proposes in his book
- Daniel H. Pink proposes three pillars for
motivation: autonomy, mastery, and purpose. He also addresses the
distractions to motivation that organizations can fall
- Know your purpose at all times.
- Is there such a thing as “too much
- There is no such thing as too much
transparency; be open, get to know the people, share, and then you
- Make sure that you are sharing information with
people who can handle it.
