Life as an agile coach is never dull with growing, shrinking, international, self-managed and completely brand new teams, to backlog management, code deployment, production support, and old school executives that want one throat to choke. It can be overwhelming to check one issue off the list yet feel that you have 99 more to address. It can feel like you are fighting a losing battle and no longer have the ability to influence anymore.
In this session, I’ll cover how I had to coach myself to see that I was making a difference and accept that a passionate agile coach was NOT one of the problems. I’ll also provide insight into how I handled some difficult and frustrating situations and ultimately used the agile principle of inspecting my job satisfaction and making adjustments for the better.
