What type of leader are you?

Mike Cottmeyer talks about how "Project Managers, Agile Project Managers, and ScrumMasters tend to fall into one of three camps... ...The Tracker, The Remover, and The Anticipator".

It's a really good post about how the value of a leader is in shifting from helping a team overcome problems and keeping them focused on work to helping the team predict and remove problems before they happen.

My comment is that we can't expect a new leader to immediately be an anticipator, but they need time to assess the culture and understand the domain first.
