So You Want to Be A Hero
Soft skills at the core of Agile leadership
About the Book
Agile is now eating the world. Organizations have to embrace Agile today and as we ask our leaders to take acts of leadership in an Agile environment, it can be demanding on them to operate in an environment that demands a new leadership mindset. This book wants to help Agile leaders by provinding them with a soft skills toolkit to make them succeed in such a landscape.
Jeffrey Pfeffer, listed in the top 25 management thinkers, wrote on his blog how "Businesses—indeed, all organizations—are first and foremost about relationships." No wonder why the signatories of the manifesto for Agile Software Development wrote "Individuals and interactions over processes and tools" as the first line of the manifesto. They also shared Pfeffer observation on how relationships are at the core of software development. Throughout this book, I want to help Agile leaders become more fluent with their soft skills so they can enable their leadership in an Agile environment.
