How to Claim Your Authority - Marsha Shenk | 2016 Women in Agile

    • Careers

Marsha Shenk works with leaders, integrating business anthropology, social neuroscience, and ecosystem thinking to build business environments that can morph with change. She says, “Change can be described as behavioral plasticity.” Her advice to agilists is that you do not have to be looking for a job that has the title Agile Coach or Scrum Master, instead look more broadly to find opportunities to help companies get back on their feet in a more flexible, fluid manner.  


Shenk discusses how to claim authority as a woman and as a coach: “You want to take authority to say what are the things you need to accomplish the goal.” 


Leslie Morse hosts. 


The Women in Agile community champions inclusion and diversity of thought, regardless of gender, and this podcast is a platform to share new voices and stories with the Agile community and the business world, because we believe that everyone is better off when more, diverse ideas are shared.
