Motivating Individuals and Trusting Your Agile Team
2 days ago
This week, in Episode 7 of Troubleshooting Agile, we discuss Agile Principle Number 5: "Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done."
Talking points this week include:
-Why perceptions of this principal differ immensely depending on whether your ideas of management belong to Theory X or Theory Y.
-Directed Opportunism - and who used it better, General Clausewitz in 1870 or Darth Sidious a long, long time ago.
-How trusting your team and recognising the ingenuity inherent within all employees creates a psychological safety that motivates your staff and advances your business.
-Different ways to deal with an unyielding Theory Yer.
-How to recognise when it's come down to a case of "change your organisation or change your organisation."
And finally, can you can think of a good Theory Y boss/environment depicted in TV or Film? (think corporate Mr Miyagi)
