    We work in teams. Teams that have goals, that work together to solve problems, that sometimes squabble and make up. How people in the group behave depends on the styles of leadership, management and followership adopted in the group, and on each of our individual behaviours.

    Do we have a mentoring, coaching, managing or leadership role towards others? Are we following or learning from others? Do we influence our colleagues and organisations in public or behind the scenes? Are these interactions built into a formal hierarchy in our group? Have we informally adopted an interaction role? Or have we even been forced into a particular interaction role?

    In order that we work together as efficiently and effectively as possible, we need to understand the range of approaches or styles for leadership and management, what styles we feel most comfortable with, and how we react to both being leaders and being led.

    It’s not just humans who work in groups. Other animals can tell us about how we interact with individuals, teams, and groups both as leaders and followers. Isabel discusses animal behaviour, predators, animal groups, parasites and epiphytes, and the richness of symbiotic partnership.

    Regardless of the project model/software life cycle model you use, you’ll need to understand these interactions, and when to adopt a leadership, mentoring, coaching, following or learning attitude in order to help your group thrive.

    As an expert you will be asked to facilitate the learning of others, not to mention your personal eternal learning in your field. Join an interactive session about how our brains accept new knowledge and store it for later use. Your take-away will be three-fold; how to chunk information you give to others, how to improve your own learning AND something to entertain with at dull parties.

    Case Study
    Beginner

    “We have tons of data, we don’t do enough with it”. Sound familiar? This is a familiar refrain from CxOs and Product leaders.

    Entire business models today hinge on the ability to extract value out of data. At the same time, Data orgs within companies have fallen behind on being able to extract maximum value from the data. As the quantum of data available explodes, and there is tremendous appetite to derive insight from the data, it is vital to ensure that the entire company has the right mindset and the right tooling for dealing with data.

    This session focusses on the key elements of building a data culture: How do we transform the organisation’s cultural fabric to make data a central part of the ethos.

    Workshop
    Executive

    We are drawn to people who share the same beliefs and have had similar relevant experiences. These groups give us strength and a sense of belonging. However, this creates a “self-sealing logic” that can lock out learning, because we state our beliefs as proven evidence. Every missed opportunity of collaboration, may it be at enterprise, organisation, or team level, is a symptom of our inability, as a group, to observe and learn from other group experience and set of values. We are here at the most important Agile Conference, seeking to meet people who have similar experiences, and eventually share same conclusions. What if we were about to create another bubble of "Self-Sealing-Logic" ? 
    The hands-on exercices used in the workshop use "Liminal Thinking", the latest fabulous work of Dave Gray, combined with examples of "Third Culture Kids" profiles. The approach aims to support organisations become continuous learning entities, that reinforce leadership and trigger cultural shift. 
    Session's main goals are :

    • create a space of opportunity to "unlock" our own bubble of beliefs through a set of hands-on exercices, 
    • experience , through the open discussion during the exercices, how learning enhances leadership, 
    • allow the audience to discover Dave Gray's "liminal thinking". We will learn to unveil the impact of our beliefs and start understanding why we have needed them. What were the relevant needs that lead to our assumptions? On the other hand, during the session, we will pick some other "self-sealing logic" group and try to understand without judgement their own process that led them from their own relevant experiences to different beliefs.
