    It is not a question of if a team is going to have a conflict; it is a question of when. Equipping them to deal with conflict is more than creating agreements or having a good facilitator. We look at a conflict model that focuses on dynamics of conflict by understanding- 1. Cognitive skills:self-awareness about triggers, hot spots, emotions,behaviors. 2. Emotional skills:reading emotions, body language, balancing emotions, using curiosity 3. Behavioral skills:understanding others’ perspectives and needs, avoiding 8 destructive behaviors, embracing 8 constructive behavior. In an organizational setting, it is important to understand the source (culture, interdependence, incompatibility, personality, power, etc.) and types of conflict (cognitive vs. affective). Creating awareness about conflict processes, retaliatory cycles and building a conflict profile can empower teams engage in constructive disagreements.

    There are two ways to learn. From books and trainers; and by experiencing life. Life is a great teacher.

    We are always pressed for time; that is a reality. But we can’t do anything till we have enough time; that is a myth. Because we can.

    For learning skills and acquiring knowledge we need time. We can beg borrow or steal. Beg & borrow doesn’t work. Learn interesting ways to steal time.

    Once we take care of time for skills & knowledge, we are ready to handle learning by experiencing. That doesn’t need extra time; if we know how. Through discussions and exercises, master innovative ways like maneuvering attention, watching exceptions and seeking interactions.

    Being at conferences is fine, but we need something while at work where we belong. Use a few simple yet powerful tips to keep learning.

    Have you ever thought why scrum works? That too from NeuroScience perspective?
    We all acknowledge and understand that we have moved beyond and past machine age or service era and are living in what is called “Knowledge Era”. Focus of current times is shifting from behaviours to values. From people to brain. Yet, we know very little about people or brain or its working.
    Through this talk, I will attempt to link hard neuroscience to scrum and its practices to see why it works or does not work. Also we would look at practices required beyond scrum to create an environment where scrum can flourish. Or even exists!
