IntermediateThe Star Wars universe provides many examples from which to learn about leadership. It's obvious that Darth Vader's leadership style lacks that special something, while Yoda’s leadership style captures something closer to what we might consider to be the quintessential agile leader.Yet perhaps Luke Skywalker's leadership style reflects our own struggles balancing different situations and expectations placed on us.Real leadership is more complicated than the black and white of Darth Vader or Yoda. It is a combination of how we behave and the organizational structure and culture within which we lead. At any one time, the our behaviour is one factor in many that contribute to the effectiveness of us as a leader. Leadership effectiveness depends on organizational structure, how leadership teams are formed, how information it's shared and what decisions need to be made. Culture plays a role, with different cultures responding to different leadership styles.During this workshop, we will use the Star Wars universe to introduce five leadership archetypes. Each archetype describes a specific behaviour, and is often associated with a unique leadership structure. Understanding these different archetypes gives us a language with which to evaluate and grow our leadership skills. It allows us to be contextually aware of our surroundings and to choose the leadership behaviours best suited to a given situation.

Your mind is like this water my friend, when it is agitated it becomes difficult to see. But if you allow it to settle, the answer becomes clear.
Master Oogway (Kung-Fu Panda)
When should you coach? When should you teach? And when should you mentor? It’s not always easy to recognize that you probably play different roles with your teams, let alone knowing when and how to switch between them purposefully.
In this session, we will help you consciously recognize the various coaching stances and which stance is appropriate for a given situation. You will practice stepping into the stances and moving between them using coaching katas that model situations you probably see all the time in your companies.
Attendees will leave this session with greater self-awareness of their coaching style, practice working within the various stances, and techniques they can practice to further enhance the agility of their coaching. This focus on understanding our internal thinking leads perfectly into the next session that focuses further outwards on making observations, separating out what we see versus how we interpret what we see.
Kemmy Raji / Vinayak Nagarajan - Featureban- a simulated kanban game
With accountability comes transparency and visualisation of work items. When you manage the work items instead of the individuals, you are encouraging and empowering your team to take ownership of their work.
Featureban is a simple, fun, and highly customisable kanban simulation game. Created by Mike Burrows in 2014, Featureban teaches the participants the Kanban practices and principles. You will try out some basic visual management (visualisation + feedback loops), and then experience the dramatic effect of adding work-in-progress limits to create working kanban systems.
Whether you are a novice seeking to learn Kanban in a memorable way or a seasoned practitioner looking for a great simulation to teach Kanban to others, this is the session for you. This session will be hands-on with a short introduction to the concepts - we will learn as we do!
