Agile Coaching Ethics with Shane Hastie

If you’ve been working as a coach or a consultant for any length of time you have run into situations where you have to make a decision about what the “right” thing to do actually is. Sometimes, it is pretty obvious, sometimes, not so much. Some professional organizations have established standards that credentialed professionals promise to adhere to. The International Coaching Federation has the ICF Code of Ethics (https://coachingfederation.org/ethics/code-of-ethics), the Project Management Institute has a Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct (https://www.pmi.org/about/ethics/code). In January of 2020 the Agile Alliance launched the Agile Coaching Ethics Initiative. In January of 2021, they launched a draft of their Code of Ethical Conduct for Agile Coaching along with a set of scenarios to help clarify what is, and is not an appropriate response in a variety of complicated situations. 

In this interview Agile Coaching Ethics Initiative Co-Chair, Shane Hastie joins me to talk about how the initiative came to be, how the code and the scenarios work, and how they hope Agile coaches and practitioners will begin to use it. They are also looking for feedback on the draft and scenarios, so if you’ve got time to check them out, feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Being Agile vs. Doing Agile

In this podcast, Jessie Shternshus , Paul Hammond and I take a shot at addressing the question of whether organizations have become so focused by the need to “do” Agile that they may have lost the ability to actually “be” Agile. During the conversation we touch on a number of the key challenges organizations are facing and how these challenges are impacting individuals at the team level.

20:08 Should leadership demonstrate vulnerability when trying to transition to Agile? (crickets)

22:47 You can’t put a band-aid on culture

23:56 What id you hire for the culture you want, and disappoint the new folks with what you have?
