This week, Dan Neumann is joined by Sam Falco to celebrate four years of podcasts. In this episode, Sam, who was a co-founder of the Agile Coach’s Corner Podcast, is talking about some of his experiences throughout his professional journey; he dives deep into various lessons learned and the challenges overcame.


Key Takeaways

  • Sam shares the ups and downs in his professional journey:
    • Sam learned not to interfere, but instead to listen and observe.
    • Keeping a curious perspective is always positive.
    • Learn how Teams operate; please avoid jumping in and telling them what “needs to be done.”
    • Learn, as a Scrum Master, how you can affect your Team.
  • In a “remote” world, we miss running into somebody.
    • “Can I reach out to you again?” is a good way of staying in touch with people and following up on various topics.
  • Some programs are teaching Scrum in a bad way.
    • Scrum Masters should watch and learn from Teams, it takes a lot to be able to be silent.
    • Access your ignorance, you don’t know what the Team has been going through.
