SHIFT FROM MANAGER TO LEADER
CREATION OF RIGHT ENVIRONMENT
ORGANIZATIONAL CULTURE CHANGE
Agile Transformation starts from leaders who recognize the strategic opportunity and benefits of being an Agile organization. Leadership Coaching is for middle-management, senior management and executives who want to expand their capability with becoming advocators of Agile initiative, encouraging discovery and incremental mindset while working in alignment with the company goals and strategies.
Leadership coaching includes:
Trainings and workshops. It is extremely challenging for teams to work in Agile way when more senior levels of the organization are not. Therefore, a basic understanding of practices and deep comprehension of Agile principles and values at the management level is critical for successful implementation. The change towards a more agile organization can happen only if there are enough understanding and support from management.
Coaching to create and maintain a self-organizing culture. While we want teams to solve their challenges on their own, leaders play a crucial role in the process of teams becoming self-organized. Often leaders have announced "from now on you are empowered", however, there is no practical validation in actions of this change. This sometimes includes not providing up-front solutions as that only reinforces manager's role as "decision maker". Instead, after leadership coaching sessions leaders will create a certain level of awareness to realize when managers might be limiting the teams. Furthermore, coach leaders to help teams to identify possible solutions themselves.
Coaching to create an environment where it is safe to fail, an environment where team members feel motivated, heard and supported, an environment where people grow at the team and individual level through continuous learning.
One-on-one coaching sessions. When moving from traditional project management towards Agile approach encompasses a lot of changes including a change in role responsibilities and ways to lead the teams.
Regularly joining management meetings (recommended but not mandatory). The purpose of joining management meetings is to observe decision-making process and to provide constructive feedback in order to improve efficiency so that they move towards the organization's vision.
Closing the gap between management and associates to improve management actions through frequent feedback loops.
The Leadership coach focuses on:
shift from manager to leader
change in managerial responsibilities and actions
guiding in creation of environment
organizational culture change
