'A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.' John Maxwell

Leadership is the foundational behaviour to Agile. New behaviours and self discovery for IT managers and leaders.
Our companies go Agile and new leadership challenges arise. As we found out working with many clients, the Scrum trainings do not provide answers to many questions, especially those which people responsible for managing the organization might have. Do we need a traditional structure? Who is going to take care about technical excellence? Who and when should give correctional feedback to the team or to a members of the team. Should we carry on with performance appraisals? What is the role of the leader in a Scrum/Agile environment? How to lead people with feedback, without the downsides of “Command and Control” approach?
