I like system thinking. Understanding the flow, understanding what is working what is not so well and try to navigate things around. I see a lot of people are passionate about working with agility, but they want to know how. There is no right or wrong answer how to work better and we all are at different levels in our udnerstanding we just need understanding and rationale for our thoughts and ideas. 

I like spending time with the team, coaching them to create balance in the team by creating a culture and behaviour which is enjoyable, visible, sustainable and easily manageable.
