Session Summary:

It’s not just about being leader. Leadership is not binary. Learn different shades of leadership to understand your role in teams, organizations and communities.

Session Abstract:

Scrum Masters and Agile Coaches are expected to be leaders. But what does it mean in practice? How I can tell if I’m a leader? Do I need to be a leader all the time and in all situations?

I’ve identified five shades of leadership that helps me understand my role, approach and involvement to communities I’m involved in. These are not different leadership styles you should use nor trophies you are expected to collect. This mental model helps me better understand my intentions, goals I’m trying to achieve and actions I’m going to take.

Learning Objectives:

During this talk, I want to share with you the model itself, what did I learn from it and how you can use it to identify your role in different societies you live in.

We will also look at the questions you can ask to clarify your intentions, goals and behaviors. Hopefully you’ll get better understanding of your role as a leader.
