I am an engineer and I am working in the software industry for many years now. Nowadays I take care for people - developers, team leaders, but even many more employees involved in running a successful business. I try to be a servant leader, who works with the people. Decisions are taken with the people and not for the people. Thereby, my profession has become coaching and mentoring rather than engineering.
Trust is the basis for friendliness and friendship - for getting support and for being loved. Being trusted is giving us a feeling of happiness. But did you ever think in more detail about the origins? It will tell you a lot about yourself. It is to be seen in close relation to success. Growing trust into a business or a relation is seen as a prerequisite to succeed.
A company is a group of individuals, running a business is giving a mutual purpose to them. Purpose is one key factor for motivated employees (other factors are autonomy and mastery). The first person in a company, the entrepreneur, starts a company from a vision. It provides the initial purpose. As people buy-in into the vision, the company grows.

When we start to become more agile, we start to look at the mindset of people and how they collaborate. We are considering teams to be the fundament for growth and success. Conformity is no objective at all, contribution of individual talents to a group is what we strive for. Where diversity meets collaboration, you can really claim to work the agile way.
When I was starting with agile teams many years ago, my main motivation has been to create more robust delivery processes. When I was looking at the findings, I was realizing, that I was not able to drive change by myself, so my motivation changed to empower the people in the teams to take actions on themselves. Now I realize, that my motivation has to be to foster a joint understanding of values and create room for the teams to take actions. Agile tools belong to the teams and not to me.
