Gallup’s latest Global Employee Engagement survey show that only 13% employees are fully engaged and rest are either not engaged or actively dis-engaged. Traditional Managers and leaders who command a position within organization, usually exercise a bit of authority, power, as well as resources (rewards, bonuses, recognition, etc) towards engaging people. Leadership experts and executive coaches take a route that usually involves, motivating and inspiring people, building trust, uniting everyone in the organization towards common mission, values, and goals. These work great however, need a lot of time, effort and resources.
Agile Coaches on the other hand, are in different situation altogether. Most of the Agile coaches usually command no power and authority within the organization. Yet, they aspire and commit to missions such as creating highly collaborative, self-organizing and high performing teams, developing learning organizations, helping people change behaviors etc. Think about a team that simply won’t speak up, people who would always show up late to meetings, people who prefer to work from closed door offices, team members who prefer they can do anything but contribute on the team, architects who do not share the architecture details with anyone except the leaders. Oh Boy!! there are many such behaviors that hinder teams and organizations from becoming truly Agile.
In this session, I will share six simple, easy to implement strategies and associated instances how I discovered these strategies that I've found very powerful in my experience. Agile coaches and anyone with no power and authority can apply any of these strategies to boost employee engagement, neutralize the environment from Whilte Elephants and promote collaboration. The session will be interactive and will involve simple yet really fun activity. Get ready to cheer and make some noise!!
