SPaMCAST 496 features our interview with Sam Laing. Sam and I talked about coaching agile teams. The goal of coaching is to help people unleash their inner power. We also touch on the difference between coaching and mentoring. They are different and require different approaches but both are useful!
Sam’s Bio - Sam writes:
Samantha Laing (@samlaing)
My personal motto is ‘be brave’, and I embody this by taking on challenges one small step at a time.
Most of my career has been in the IT industry, specifically Software Development. Nowadays I find myself guiding and mentoring others with a passion for agile. This year my focus has been on experimenting and learning from my failures (and successes) – what a great journey so far.

SPaMCAST 497 will feature our essay on micromanagement (I am going to oversee and provide instruction on how this should be done - I am going to micromanage the entire SPaMCAST staff). Micromanagement is almost always a bad idea. The problem is that people still do it and then rationalize the behavior. We will hold forth on the topic!
We will also have columns form Gene Hughson and Dr. Susan Parente!
