We always blame leadership and organization culture for ineffective Agile transformation. So do you think Agile transformation is top down or bottom up?

Agile transformation is not top down or bottom up. Its start with you. Changing the organization starts with changing yourself. We all have things in our life be it work or personal life , we want to change – our eating habits, our hair colour, our productivity. But change is hard! That’s because these things you want to change serve an important purpose – consciously, you may despise the behaviour, but on a deeper level the behaviour you want to change is a protection or a pattern that helped or helps you meet your needs. Until you identify and understand the purpose of this behaviour, change will be extremely difficult.

Here are strategies that can help you change “I” – Insights, “A” – Awareness and “M” Maturity.This presentation is focuses on scientifically proven patterns as well as real-time examples people can relate to and generate insights, create awareness and test their maturity to take up the challenge.

    Timothy Newbold - Why Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) is one of the worst kept secrets to organisational success

    90 Mins

    Hearing a lot about Objectives & Key Results (OKRs), but still a little unclear what they're about? Maybe you're hearing all the chatter and it's tweaking your interest! Well, join me for a farside chat and all will be revealed.

    In this session we'll get under the hood of OKRs to understand the history, the core concepts and cut our teeth in a manner which allows us to take them back to our teams for further exploration.

    At minimum, you'll walk out of the session with some clear goals for the coming quarter!


    Do we know our stuff?
    OKR Quickstart coaches and consults businesses on how to create strategic clarity, achieve audacious goals and build high performing teams. We've helped hundreds of people and businesses introduce OKR so that everyone finds crazy value out of them (not just the exec team). We've made every mistake in the book and this session summarises some of our biggest learnings!

    Stories are an amazingly powerful communication tool. They sidestep our rational brain before crash tackling our limbic system and putting our amygdala in a headlock (see what I did there? I just told a story).

    Humans have used stories for thousands of years to communicate. From the earliest creation myths to modern podcasting. Stories grab you, drag you in and implant their message deep in your brain.

    The only place we don't use stories to communicate is in business where we are told to "stick with the facts", "take emotion out" and "keep it professional".

    Let's change that. Let's put the emotion back in and give ourselves a communications edge through the amazing power of stories.

    Niall McShane - Creating and managing tensions in coaching

    90 Mins

    As a coach there are natural tensions that come into play as you execute your role to affect the system of work, influence culture and change behaviours. The EGDE that good coaches are able to find allows them to navigate these tensions whilst maintaining the balance of stance in the moment that the situation requires.

    Think of seeing the "trees versus the forest" but on multiple levels/layers concurrently. Being an actor on the stage versus maintaining distance from the system of work (being in the audience).

    In this workshop I will take the audience through some of the tensions I've recently experienced and navigated as a coach and how I have assisted other coaches to learn this skill and how you can develop it yourself.
