Agile in Everyday Life
Please don't assume that Agile is only good for Software Development, Startups, DevOps, Change Management, Personal Productivity, Product Development, Marketing, Sales, Time Management, Organisational Change, Educating Children, Operations, Infrastructure, Design, Teamwork and Saving your Organisation just because they are the only things that happened to be on this list.
Applying Agile principles in everyday life is a great way to not only improve your quality of life, but to experiment with Agile approaches and find out what you've really internalised.
For coaches and leaders practicing Agile in Everyday Life presents a rich opportunity to not just talk the talk, but also walk the walk.
In this talk I'll give a couple of examples of how I've drawn on Agile approaches to help address personal challenges, plus discuss with the audience what areas folks are "doin' it for themselves".
This will be an interactive session, somewhere between a talk and a short workshop.
Outline/structure of the Session
- Attention-grabbing opening
- Engaging examples
- Insightful activities
- Friendly heckling

Participants should go forth from this session inspired to apply Agile principles to upcoming personal challenges, and better equipped to do so.
