Are you struggling to implement change in your organization? Is your team resisting your influence? Does your team believe they are a high-performing, mature team, therefore do not need to change? Are you actively trying to bring about improvements without results?

If this is you, then you need to stop what you're doing. Yes, stop everything and do 'nothing'. This means stop pushing against the resistance, stop driving people onto the Agile bandwagon. Instead, influence your environment by telling stories, model the behaviours that you would like to see, and most importantly be real.

This talk illustrates a different approach to initiate change. Attendees will walk away with a list of pragmatic techniques to influence teams.
