Tell or Show

Telling or showing a client what to do is the typical move in agile coaching. This represents the majority of agile coaching work I see being delivered in organizations, which is OK and is appropriate most of the time. I see the average agile coach habitually react by telling or showing their clients agile.
 

The difference between typical and responsive agile coaching conversations is that in a responsive conversation the coach makes this move as a conscious choice and after consideration as to whether it best serves the client, the situation, and the organization.
