In order to find my edge, I felt that as a software developer, I need to learn more than just technical things. I happened to work in a company that had an agile coach, and thought this 'Agile principles' could become my leading edge. I would like to have hands-on experience and although there are opportunities to apply it at work, I found that the principles could well be widely used. I started to share them with my extended families (in which at times was being looked at weirdly), and at times I'm just implementing it without them knowing. This talk was just sharing a little bit of my story from resolving 'family argument', 'career retrospective', and 'bridging communication issues' with a gist of agile.

    We often expect our leaders to be imbued with superpowers, effortlessly balancing the needs of the many against their own convictions and values. A leader's ability to navigate these scenarios can lead to their success or downfall. As such we don't often provide the space for leaders to admit failure or uncertainty.

    "Contrary to equating vulnerability to weakness, exhibiting vulnerability offers the possibility of inspiring people and connecting on a deeper level" - Hanson

    Join us in this session as we explore the concept of vulnerability in leaders and its impact on the ecosystem. We will share real life stories and tips we've learnt along the way in coaching leaders on transparency and vulnerability.

    Boral is on a rapid Agile transformation and one of the challenges is to provide senior executives and the board of directors an understanding what agile really means for the company.

    In the end its not about Scrum or Kanban, or any other framework for that matter.

    They really just want to know what outcomes will it drive for the company.

    We will explore the 9 factors that I've used to paint a picture of what an organisation would feel like if it truly became an agile organisation.

    Learned helplessness can be a pervasive parasite in your organisation, creating a persistent barrier to change and a dangerous edge to disengaged individuals.

    Join us in this talk as we share practical take away's to spot learned helplessness and the tips to stop the infection spreading.
