6…Competencies

Great agile leaders have four core competencies: they can create a vision, enhance motivation, get feedback, and implement change. They also need to have the supporting competencies of decision making, collaboration, facilitation, and coaching. However, great agile leaders are not born this way—they are constantly developing these competencies. Being an agile leader is a journey, and no matter how great you are now, there is always a better way.

The Agile Leader Competencies Map is a good visualization tool that helps agile leaders to understand what they are good at and what they might need to improve.
