Rik Pennartz: How to coach your Scrum team like a Pro!

When Scrum Masters start their journey but come from project management or even line management background, there’s the temptation to “tell people what to do”. However, that’s not a good approach to help teams grow and improve. In this episode, we explore the role of the Scrum Master as a coach, and discuss how to set up and host “Coaching Conversations”. 

In this episode, we refer to Gregg Popovich, legendary coach of the Basketball team San Antonio Spurs
