SM as a Servant Leader

SM as a servant leader: So, you have no authority over the team members, but you are still expected to change their behavior and even their mindset. An although you understand the Why, you know the What, you still cannot get them to do what you want. Bummer! Or maybe not? In this day we will focus on the challenge of leadership without authority. How to evolve as a leader, learn practical tools to influence and to create a mindset-shift.

This one day workshop is part of the Scrum Master Week. You may choose to attend the entire week, or pick and choose the right days for you.

Target audience:  Scrum Masters, Product Owners and Product Managers, Agile Coaches and others who figured out that telling people what to do may be efficient but is hardly ever effective.

Workshop Outline

  • Helping team members to master Responsibility and Accountability
  • What are The 5 dysfunctions of a team, and how to handle them?
  • How to work when my team is distributed across multiple sites?
  • What do we do with teammates who don't want to do Scrum?
  • Using effective feedback to face teammates with hard facts without offending of breaking them
  • Designing safe-to-fail experiments to drive improvement in small incremental steps

Scrum is: Lightweight, Simple to understand and Difficult to master״, according to the Scrum Guide.

So.. Are you the scrum master? You have a big a challenge! The scrum guide itself says your role to master Scrum is difficult.. 

What makes it is so difficult? People! This role is focused on people. Influencing people without power and without authority. And as a people's person you know that being efficient doesn't make you necessarily effective. That's a hard sell.

What turns a good scrum master into a great one?
