Essential Patterns of Mature Agile Leaders

Currently so much of agile adoption, coaching, advice, techniques, training and even the empathy revolve around the agile teams. Leaders are typically either ignored or marginalized at best, and in the worst cases often vilified. But Bob Galen contends that there is a central and important role for managers and effective leadership within agile environments.
In this workshop, we will explore the patterns of mature agile managers and leaders. Those that understand Servant Leadership and how to effectively support, grow, coach, and empower their agile teams in ways that increase the teams performance, accountability, and engagement.
We will explore training and standards for agile adoption, and situations and guidelines for when to trust the team and when to step in and provide guidance and direction. We will examine the leader's role in agile at-scale and with distributed agile teams.
Good leadership is a central ingredient to sustaining your agile adoption. Bad leadership can render it irrelevant or a failure. Here we will walk the path of the good, but also examine the bad patterns in an effort to inspire you and your teams.
