The second episode of The Coaching Agile Teams Mini-Series was recorded by Lyssa Adkins and Leslie Morse in August of 2020. During this conversation they explore the inspiration and mission for the mini-series. It is very much an exploratory conversation with moments of laughter counterbalanced with deep and at times vulnerable discussion.
Leslie and Lyssa open their hearts and minds in an invitation to listeners as they call on their desire to normalize what it means to be on the journey to becoming an Agile coach. There is quite a bit of range in their conversation. You’ll have the opportunity to hear them to share fun stories such as one Lyssa recalls about Ron Jeffries at the 10-year anniversary of the Agile Manifesto as well as dig into deeper topics that feel more like coaching sessions between the two of them.
Two of our favorite quotes from Lyssa include:
“So much of what is in [Coaching Agile Teams] is not being done and I believe that if more of it was being done today we would have far less of the problems I continue to hear about – like on repeat. [They encounter] the same problem over and over and over again, and people are expecting Agile to solve it. It is only actually Agile’s job to reveal.”
“Whoa! Hang On! If I’m not solving problems for the team, then what am I doing? And [Coaching Agile Teams] says, here’s what you’re doing.”
