AN EXPERT FACILITATOR AND COACH; CAN STEP UP OR STEP BACK AS NEEDED.
A skillful leader does not make decisions in a vacuum; they make space for the team to make decisions as a group.
Many Tanzu Labs engineers feel that anchors are responsible for assessing what needs to be done — from an engineering perspective — and making sure those tasks get done through skillful facilitation and delegation. The trick here is providing enough leadership to move the team forward without taking control of the decision-making process. Much like the Peer, it may be unclear to outsiders who the anchor (servant leader) actually is.
