Agile Leadership – Is a Servant Leader always the Right Approach?

There is an accepted wisdom within the Agile community that the right management style is that of the Servant Leader, one who is there to serve the team as a ‘first among equals’.

There is an accepted wisdom within the Agile community that the right management style is that of the Servant Leader, one who is there to serve the team as a ‘first among equals’. They are not the manager of the team, as the team is self-organising, but rather they remove impediments and coach the team in agile best practices. However, just blindly following this approach in every circumstance can be catastrophic. This talk is aimed at Scrum Masters and team members. After the talk attendees will understand: • the definition of a servant leader and what this means in practice • the difference between management and leadership • how to assess the current situation in order to decide the most appropriate leadership style • when to change leadership style for maximum results • that a true servant leader is about giving the team what they need, not necessarily what they want
