When you want me but no longer need me, then I have to go.

“When you need me but do not want me, then I must stay. When you want me but no longer need me, then I have to go” – Emma Thompson as Nanny McPhee

I really love this quote from a book I’ve been reading – Coach Agile Teams by Lyssa Adkins.

It made me think of the almost three year journey I went on with my previous team, from teaching in the trenches, to coaching and helping them grow and learn, to advising them from time to time.

As a coach it’s important to transition and adapt your role in the team as the team matures over the journey together.
