When stepping into a coaching role, you address the central requirement of agile leadership: how to be an effective servant leader to your employees. The key to success is working at eye level with employees – supporting, partnering, mentoring, and coaching – with the goal of providing them greater autonomy, the ability to self-organize, and an environment that fosters inclusion and innovation. In the role of coach, you concentrate on leveraging the full potential of your team. You help your people to step up, learn fast, be agile, and take ownership for generating ideas and executing responsibly. Coaching rarely comes intuitively to managers. In addition to emotional intelligence, communication skills, and methodical expertise, the ability to master and reconcile the different roles of supervisor and coach is vital.
