Slides of my "Agile" session: "Learn different leadership styles with Star Wars Coaches" (given 29/11/2012 during XP Days Benelux 2012)


Most of management and leaderships techniques are traditionally taught during executive trainings.

However, as I’ve experienced these techniques in Agile Teams (with the role of team member, scrum master or coach) they appear to be very efficient and powerful tool of communication.

This session is the opportunity to (re)discover them and to practice them.

As I was not comfortable to do it alone, I will be joined by several famous coaches like Yoda or Darth Vador
