Chapter 11. Agile Coach Failure, Recover... > Agile Coach Success Modes

Agile Coach Success Modes

Success modes don’t announce their arrival loudly, so look for the small but mighty when you observe successful coaching in yourself or others. See which of these would make a difference in your coaching.

The Magician asks questions that—voila!—reveal what is there but could not be seen.
The Child genuinely wonders “why?” and is propelled by an insatiable curiosity about life and everything in it.
The Ear hears everything but gives people room to grow by not responding to all of it.
The Heckler keeps it fun and light and just a little off balance to jolt people out of complacency.
The Wise Fool asks the dumb questions that enlighten.
The Creeping Vine makes small moves, imperceptible to the team, that relentlessly pull them back to the core of agile bit by bit.
The Dreamer bravely gives voice to possible futures waiting to be created.
The Megaphone makes sure all voices are heard, especially the voices of the oppressed.
