Happier at Work Series: Your Agility Development Plan

Whether I am coaching a Scrum Master or a Product Owner or a Development Team member a familiar pattern emerges – the Agile world presents them with career challenges, questions, un-managed gaps, anxiety, and full-blown impostor syndrome.

In the frenzy to get things done, they rarely stop to reflect about where they stand and how they are going to grow in their new roles or accountability areas. To complicate matters, many HR organizations are unprepared to handle agile recruiting and career development. Managers are unprepared to provide guidance, mentorship and reviews. Success metrics are fuzzy. A strong internal support network may be lacking and they are unaware of the wonderful resources outside of their organizations. They may feel alone and inadequate.

Does any of this sound familiar? Whether if you are in this situation or just asking for a friend (wink), join us in this timely workshop as we usher in a New Year (Thank God!) to learn how you can take charge of your career in the Agile world.
