    Retrospectives and other meetings are typically the events where information is shared and decisions are made. This means, that a lot of work is done or at least guided by such meetings. Moreover as a coach, most often you are leveraging retrospectives and other meetings in order to introduce change or to deal with challenges during change.

    Luckily, meanwhile there are a lot of books available focusing on techniques, activities, games, and the structure of retrospectives. These books and the respective courses provide a good foundation for leading a retrospective. Yet, these are tools only. Because, although we often have a great toolbox of facilitation techniques handy, the retrospectives we're facilitating aren't always successful. The reason is that we're putting too much emphasis on games, activities, and formats and too less on the craft of facilitation. In this session you will learn what to focus on when preparing a retrospective (or a similar facilitated event), how to ensure that as a facilitator you will have the "right" attitude, and how to ensure smooth group decisions. By understanding the role of the facilitator you will learn for example, how to keep all participants engaged (even the quiet ones and without having the talkatives using up the whole time), or how to deal with issues that are not solvable by the team.

    In this session I want to share my experiences based not only on having facilitated many retrospectives, yet also on having completed both a course of teacher training and of professional facilitation.

    Agile meetings do not always go smoothly. Especially when you work in a geographically distributed team or get moved from one team to another. How can you discover what might be going on when things go awry? This session will have a brief simulation of a meeting. Three volunteers will play agile roles with typical challenges we experience. As a group we will share observations about the interactions, and what we thought we understood, but may not have. This session introduces the Satir Interaction Model and a broader understanding of how we might correct mis-interpreted behavior and commenting.

    Industries worldwide are entering a new era of management and the rules are changing. Planning, setting expectations and work or project assessments are but a portion of a manager's obligation. With the advent of new generations entering the market place managers are now required to be experts in leadership, delegation, focus and alignment.

    Everyone uses perspectives, from dawn to dusk and even in dreams. From the time we awake ideas and thoughts are packaged into perspectives.

    Perspectives help us with decisions and ultimately guides us in navigating the sea of life. However, we are not alone in this world and for every one person there is a multitude of perspectives.

    So who holds the truth for any given situation? Which perspective is the ‘right’ one? This is our belief - the path to truth is the sum all offered perspectives for any given context or situation. Our beliefs and values are what define our limitations in the number of perspectives we can take. Hence it is very difficult for one to hold the whole truth about anything because of these limitations.

    Going beyond our limitations is one of the answers towards becoming more creative, innovative and inviting discovery.

     

    If your intention is to adapt and become a great Agile manager, coach or leader; then join us in this interactive presentation.

    Come and take part in a session that will stretch and challenge your ability to take different perspectives. It will invite you to have a wider view of what is actually going on and have more insights for more meaningful decisions.
