So at Agile Coach Camp Austria (#ACCAT18), I held one of the open space sessions with title “Agile Coach Burn-Out”. (Upbeat topic, I know!) Anyway, it reminded me of my early days with agile, when I believed I had discovered the one truth about how to get projects done. Agile made so much sense. If I could see the light, then so should everyone else. Therein lay the seeds of my destruction. I crashed and very nearly burned out. It was a very painful but valuable lesson. These days, I’m actually glad that it happened, as I think it makes me a better coach – not that I saw it like that at the time 😉
