Hi all,

Whose responsibility is that - conducting 1:1, people management, helping team members in professional growth, settings OKRs/PDPs (professional development plan and goals), and other things like that?

I'm asking that because in my company we also have team leads who all these things but currently we are trying to change the way the things go in our company, and I am very interested in your real experiences with that

In agile practice it is best to have self-organizing teams. Do any of the activities you are thinking about contradict the principle of self-organization, and must therefore lie in the hands of a particular authority? If so, why?
