Know thyself: using Introspection to find your inner edge
Outline/Structure of the Keynote
General thoughts on this would be to cover lightly concepts in Christopher Avery's responsiblity process, a little bit of Non Violent Communication, but a really deep dive in Byron Katie's "The Work" + Theory U as a technique to deeply introspect. It would start by highlighting common perceptive techniques used in Agile - retrospectives (team reflection) and Agile Coaching (observative reflection), but highlight that neither of these is introspective and that the missing ingredient in Lyssa Adkin's Coaching Canvas is introspection.Introspection is about driving for deep insight in self but fundamentally challenging everything you think. It leads to a significant reduction in bias, but more powerfully, gives a freedom that most people don't realise they need. Introspection is the gift of removal all delusions of self and leads to inquiry to enable reality to be really experienced. It would include stories about how it has changed me and enabled me to coach on a completely different level.
Techniques to apply introspection to yourself - including knowing what level of responsibility you are working from, how to connect deeper with feelings through non-violent communication and how to assess your hypotheses and assumptions using "The Work".
Everyone! Introspection isn't just useful for teams working with each other, or leaders in organisations, but useful in all personal interactions as well.
