When Sadia started working this this team, all looked great. Everybody was doing what they were supposed to. However, nothing was happening. There was no energy in that team, there was no conflict. As Sadia then learned, when something looks too good to be true, it probably is. Listen in to learn about the anti-patterns that were silently destroying this team.
In Surrounded by Idiots by Thomas Erikson, Sadia found some critical lessons about how to communicate with certain types of people at work and in life in general. This book introduces the DISC model (assigning colors to certain personalities), and helps us understand how different people think differently. And understanding these differences is critical for our job as Scrum Masters.
How can Angela (the Agile Coach) quickly build healthy relationships with the teams she’s supposed to help? What were the steps she followed to help the Breeze App team fight off the competition? Find out how Angela helped Naomi and the team go from “behind” to being ahead of Intuition Bank, by focusing on the people! Download the first 4 chapters of the BOOK for FREE while it is in Beta!
