We all know the definition of a servant leader, but how many of us is going deeper into this term and understand the value it brings nowadays? The message I am keen to send is that each of us, no matter what management position has, is responsible to make sure the interaction with others is valuable on both sides. As Richard Bransons said " Clients do not come first. Employees come first. If you take care of your employees, they will take care of the clients." Why it is important to take care of each member from your team, how you can do it and even more why you should create with each of them an authentic relationship - you will discover in the speech. In the meanwhile, think about - how closed are you to your people, do they feel that someone is doing art/magic with them to fulfill their potential while your business is growing faster and faster?
Only those who will risk going too far can possible find out how far one can go." As a Scrum Master I had plenty of "opportunities" when the only way to solve a problem was to risk to step ahead. I am not talking about situations related to implementing Agile ceremonies or following organization's processes but working with people and achieve great results. Being passionate about PEOPLE, it was easy to decide that I want to work with them and be there for the team. In the position of a Scrum Master you are able to see all perspectives in the business - client's point of view, higher management's and the team's. It is pretty challenging to gather all the needs and expectations to build a common sense of what success does mean, still it is not impossible. Once you put passion in what you are doing, you can take the risk and believe that there are no impossible things, there are just different perspectives.
