"Insights Discovery" for Agile leaders
As leaders of Agile teams, we often need to be aware of different personality types of people we have in our teams. Coaching, people management and leadership is a difficult art and sometime we all need more than just patience. We need tools and frameworks that help us find better ways to communicate and bring change. Insights Discovery is a simple personality model that can help you understand yourself and your clients. Based on this, you can adjust how you message the change you bring, how you create a collaborative dynamic in agile teams, how you present a new idea and how to be successful when introducing new concepts. This model is useful when working with team members or Executive leaders. This will be a workshop that will take you through an exercise where you will be able to test this model. Fun guarantied!
Outline/Structure of the Workshop
I have ran this session before with other coaches at my company and they liked it. Some of them still refer to the concepts from this model. I will make small changes to focus it on coaching perspective, team management but some slides are here: http://www.slideshare.net/arditakaraj/working-withexecs-ss. For about 20 minutes, I will explain the model, how it works and how to use it. For 30 minutes, I will run an exercise with attendees split in groups where they will prepare a presentation for a Leader and a 1:1 with a team member that has created some tension within the team. At the end, teams will share their perspectives and input. 10 minutes for Q&A at the end.
This session is also proposed for Agile Software conf on Nov 10. Still waiting for final approval
Insights Discovery model, as a tool to understand different personalties that we have to deal in our day-to-day work. Understand their strength and weaknesses and use them (strengths mostly) to build a better team that works well together.
