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: 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
