How true

I read this interview by Bill Wake to an Ukrainian coach, and he raises a very important point that I find it difficult to get right :-)

WW – I’m interested in things you do, behaviors you have, whether you think of them as coaching or programming.

AK – I was at a position in my life where I stopped being a traditional team lead and turned myself into a ScrumMaster. It’s hard to do, because you get used to proposing your ideas and believing that you’re smarter than other people. Instead you have to start believing that the team can make up better ideas themselves. You make yourself stop talking and just ask questions. This is a hard thing to achieve.
