Soft Skills Coaching: How Can My Team Become More Agile?

Soft Skills Coaching: How Can My Team Become More Agile?

 

How do I  help my team become agile?

 

Hello and welcome to episode 100 of the HSS.  If this hapesn to be the first episode you lsten to, in each episode I discuss a difefernt essential skill with the help of an expert. I have spoken to globally recognized authors, Harvard professors, military leaders, psychologists, pscyhitiatrics, people who have done scientific reserahc on how to become better at the so called "soft" skills to help you thrive in your career.

I want to thank you for being with me in this learning journey. I started this alongside my graduate studies in Organizational Psychology at Harvard, and through my own career journey which at this time involves working with multiole technical teams to help them become high perfoming, and create an agile organization. 

This is why today I chose to highlight this topic of agility because it embodies what soft skills are about, how to integrate human dynamics to deliver a solution. 

In this episode I’ll play some excerpts from some of the folks who co-created the famous Agile Manifesto, the base document for all things agile. Let's listen to Jeff Sutherland talking about what makes a great team, Jon Kern, on what we really need or don’t need, to get things done faster, and Arie van Benekum on the essentials of collaboration.

It is time to take an inventory of your year, figure out what do you eally want: a new job, a new career, growth. 

So I will replay an excerpt of my interview with executive coach and author Dr Gary Crotaz. He is considered one of the top coaching leaders in the world.  Listen to his model based on his book The IDEA Mindset where he breaks down how to conduct a good self assessments and define our true path.

The feeling that management or even team members do not realize how much we contribute to a team is something I hear often. We usually hear the advice of ‘just put your head down’ do the work and it will be noticed.' But this is rarely the case and we just need to be more strategic about it. 

This is why when I read the book Impact Players: How to Take the Lead, Play Bigger and Multiply Your Impact by Liz Wiseman, I knew I wanted her on the show. In the book and as she discusses in our conversation, she describes what disnguishes good employees vs those that really make an impct and seemed to be relied upon the most.

If there is a skill I need help with, and I am sure you do to, is how to deal with difficult people. People who either may come at you screaming, or be condescending or whom we may simply be consider plain crazy. Sometimes we may be the crazy person in a situation. 

So I had the honor to speak with a psychiatrist about it. Dr Mark Goulston gave critical techniques on how to act during a moment of heated conversation.

One of my favorite guets was Peggy Klaus, and as you may know she is the author of multiple books including ‘Bragg: The Art of Tooting Your Own Horn Without Blowing It.' 

The main challenge for many people, especially in tech, is how can we really promote ourselves when we do not want to look like complete a…holes. To distinguish between both, let's listen to an excerpt of my conversation with peggy where she also shares how to do proper bragging.

In this episode he summarizes his method.
