Jim Wyllie (agile coach)

This week, Jim Wyllie, an agile coach, tells us:

  • Why Jim is no longer on my Christmas card list
  • What would mean Jim isn't doing his job
  • Which two items he considers to be one (hint: it's not the Spice Girls)
  • Why he wouldn't take his wife as a companion
  • Why he should have a Super Sticky post-it on his lycra-clad arse (and he has a special pull motion to stop any curling)
  • Which tool he considers to be evil because it kills communication ... but which is loved by big organisations
  • ... and much more.

About the Podcast

The Coach's Backpack
An insight into what coaches consider the most important tools of their trade
The Coach’s Backpack podcast asks a variety of coaches (from sports to comedy) what they consider to be the most important tools of their trade, physically and/or mentally.

They are only allowed to take limited items on a hypothetical new engagement: one book, one tool/technique/approach/framework, one other item of their choice … and a person to accompany them.
