schedule 5 months agoSold Out!
I have been meditating since quite some time now. Meditation gives me peace of mind. It allows me to be more conscious and aware of things around me. Interestingly, I have experienced the benefits in Coaching & Mentoring, in Testing and also in Automation activities on Agile projects.
In this talk, I will be sharing how Meditation helped me in Testing on Agile projects - while working on various activities that help my team build a Quality product. I will also be sharing experiences of the way we approach certain testing activities - and how that correlates to the conscious mind, or not! These experiences can be applicable to any role on Agile projects.
PS: I will be referring to some Meditation techniques that work for me. This is not about any religion / faith / practice.
Effecting Change as a DeveloperDavid Laribee
schedule 3 months agoSold Out!
As an independent agile coach, I encounter a lot of developers frustrated by their home team culture. The same questions come up time and again: "how do I get my team to adopt XYZ?" This question assumes a solution instead of framing a problem and involving a group in conceiving and developing an answer. With a little conscious work, we can hone our skills as influencers and stop operating from unconscious, unexamined motivations. When we reframe effecting change in this way, our efficacy improves dramatically.
In this talk, I'll share a mindset for improving effecting change through ethical influence and group involvement. I'll end by sharing a toolbox of simple change tools you can apply to your teams the very next day.
