You’ve sat through various trainings and have undoubtedly learned many key concepts: the ScrumMaster is a servant leader; teams should be self organized; team empowerment is the key to success. Well thats fine and dandy but how does one actually do that? As a servant leader, the ScrumMaster plays an important role to guide the team to success even without authoritative power. Let’s say you actually DO have authoritative power, then leading team should be even easier, right? Maybe not.

Team Leaders, ScrumMasters, PM’s tend to use the terms “to motivate” and “to inspire” interchangeably but the actions don’t quite correlate to their intent when in reality they are trying “to manipulate” the team to perform.

Everything is context driven, but what I hope to provide is an example of where subtle techniques of motivation, inspiration, and manipulation with positive intent can drive a team towards improvement and maturity. The approaches here are tactical, tangible with the intent to change at the ground level, meaning these can be implemented by the team immediately.
