  1. That was nice. The 4 traits care for others, people person, patience and curiosity. Definitely needed. I would also say building that relationship with the team which ofcourse is part of being the people person. Building relationship with the team and thereby enhancing trust among the team and with the scrum master elevates the progress of the team.

  2. That’s a good point. Thank you for sharing. I talk about relationship building in some other videos and whitepapers, so we are definitely on the same page here.
    Building trust is essential in building the right culture that allows Scrum to thrive.
