Agile software development depends on close collaboration. If we don't trust our team mates or our managers, this can block collaboration on the team. Being able to build trust is an essential skill for agile coaches which is covered in Rachel's Agile Coaching book. Come along to this talk to find out some simple ways that you can start building trust on the teams you work with.
