Playing around with the exposure led to the ownerless straw hat (our coach), floating above the clear glass bottles (our team).

As agile coach, trainer or scrum master it’s important to bring the team into the foreground.

Whether with stakeholders, customers, or simply helping them recognise that it is the team that counts.

Help them to be transparent with one another, as only through that openness and honesty will they truly operate as a single unit.

You can achieve this by acting as an extra pair of eyes, an observer one step removed from the main group.

Provide the team the space they need and help them through the tougher discussions. Use your observational skills to highlight key incidences and provide objective feedback to help them improve.

Remember, you don’t always need to immediately have an answer, help the team to find the answer themselves by guiding them with open questions and bring them closer together as a single unit.
