Product Owners are from Mars and Scrum masters are from Venus!

Mars is to stand up, be noticed and get things done — sitting on the sidelines belongs somewhere else in the heavens. Mars speaks to the power and confident expression of the individual. Whether it’s at work or on the field of play, Mars encourages us to face challenges and to be our best -- or better. Aggression is part of the plan here although Mars also values courage and honor. Assertion and a daring, fearless nature please this planet.

Venus rules our sentiments, what we value, and the pleasure we take in life. Grace, charm, and beauty are all ruled by Venus. Through Venus, we learn about our tastes, pleasures, artistic inclinations, and what makes us happy. Venus rules attachments to others. Venus energy is harmonious, and this is why people with Venus prominent in their charts are often peace-makers. In Venus, we find a need to be appreciated and to appreciate.

In my 9 years of the Agile software product development journey, I have been performing these roles in the different time in my career in the different context and appreciating these 2 roles as they are from different planets! both these planets influence the team in a different way to achieve agility. When all the team members work on planet Earth under scrum team, we have interesting things to observe and learn.

Why these 2 roles are different planets?

Why these 2 roles should be from different planets?

What advantage we have when these roles are from 2 different planets?

How does these role difference help to bring about business agility?

Challenges we have all these planets members function closely and how can we establish the culture.

I will be glad to share various models and techniques which is working for me and they are proven and should be working for anyone. We will talk more about the story to establish these concepts and effect on team coaching.

I have shared some of my thoughts in LinkedIn blogs and linked are attached.

    This session will be a sharing from a real-time case study. Extraction from one of my prominent linked in blog. As an agile coach, how can we establish the success which naturally moves to us? Today’s world business dynamics shift now and then. An organization wants miracles to be done by the agile coaches. Every legacy large enterprise calls for the agile coach to clean up the whole system in the shortest period of time!
    Most of the time if coaches are not working out the risks, they get into trouble though we call all these events as a learning but we can ourselves prepare the recipe for failure if we do not evaluate ourselves accurately.

    I will be speaking about several blind spots and my recommendation to these issues. All those has worked for me.

    I have attached all my linked in posts related to this theme.

    This is one of my thought concluded after interaction with many enterprise coach Colleagues and I myself convince about this concept which is working with me.

    This talk will present to all about numerous cases where already enterprise coaches are applying distinct psychological theories and application of the same during coaching.

    When we talk about Mindset, it is all about our mind. If we coach does not understand the richer sense of mind how we can stimulus diversified cultural people for the mindset change.

    Gil Broza aptly points out, an agile mindset combines values, beliefs, and principles that in turn guide how processes and practices are implemented. When we start dealing with people’s value, belief, and principles, you are getting into the world of psychology. May not be first of coaching but after 10 years of coaching for sure, you will touch upon some psychological concepts and application of these concepts.

    I will be taking you through these concepts which worked for me.

    The various context where we need to apply psychological theory

    What are the innumerable theories we have which can be applied during coaching?

    A case study where I have achieved the major success by applying some of these theories

    I have included a few of my linked in posts to reinforce this theme.
