Behaviours/capabilities the consultant need to manage

Agile Mindset - A great RTE not only understands the foundations of Agile and SAFe but embraces an Agile mindset. The RTE not only teaches Agile but embodies an Agile mindset. It is in the state of being Agile that one exudes the confidence in knowing the value that Agility provides. A great RTE will be value focused and guided by the Lean-Agile principles as outlined above in SAFe, with a concentration on Systems thinking.

Courageous - Like a ScrumMaster, a great RTE has the courage to say what needs to be said in a respectful and tactful way. They respect the authority and direction of management, but have the courage to deliver the truth, even if it's not what people want to hear.
The RTE must have the courage to say no sometimes in order to avoid over-committing the train to too much work.

Servant Leadership - A great RTE is above all a Servant Leader, leading the team by example, by actions as well as by words. They earn the respect of the ART, from both the leadership as well as the teams. The RTE will serve the SM community as the primary escalation contact and be ready to do whatever is necessary to keep the train rolling. The RTE steps up when called upon to work with the SAFe Release Management Team, Product Management Team and other representatives of Shared Services.

Integrity - A great RTE is a person of integrity. They hold themselves accountable to keep their word and deal fairly with everyone.

Facilitator - A great RTE is comfortable presenting in front of the team and management. They have an arsenal of tools and techniques to keep the participants interested and engaged.

Negotiator - A great RTE understands that most things are not black and white. There are many shades of grey, where matters must be negotiated to achieve an agreement that is palatable to all parties involved.

Communicator - A great RTE can deliver a message with tact, being sensitive to how the message is received by the team or by management.

Teacher - A great RTE nurtures the team's understanding of Agile principles and practices through the use of workshops, Agile games, and presentations.

Mentor - A great RTE serves to guide individuals in the Train to a clearer understanding of the processes and approaches implemented by the ART.

Honest and Transparent - A great RTE understands the value of transparency. Agile does not fix problems, but it does expose them. A great RTE knows this and approaches the matter with the intention of informing the broader group and working together on a resolution.

Critical Thinking - A great RTE has the ability to think on their feet. They can quickly analyse a situation and organize the team around a solution. They do not have to define the solution but has the savvy to guide the conversation.

Lifelong learner - A great RTE understands that their learning journey is never over. They strive to build their skills through continuous learning. Learning comes from many places: formal classroom training, books, blog posts, podcasts, seminars, and other colleagues - everyone around you can teach you valuable lessons you can apply every day in a team setting.
