What are Impediments and How do I Remove Them? A Guide for Scrum Masters (and similarly minded people)William StrydomFounder and PrincipalTEAL TransformationKari McLeodOwnerApiary Coaching, Facilitation, Training
schedule 1 year agoSold Out!
Do you feel like a deer caught in the headlights when your team brings up impediments at the daily stand up? Or, do you feel like the person who walks in to the cafe and all of the diners turn around and look at you?
Have we got a session for you! In just over an hour, Scrum Masters (and other people) will learn to identify impediments and figure out what to do with them. This session is based on work that has been done at various organizations and as part of an interactive online course for advancing scrum mastership.
This session has two parts. In the first part, you will learn how to identify impediments, including words and phrases to listen for during the daily scrum. In the second part, you will work in small groups to reveal ways to deal with impediments.
Participants will leave the session with an action plan and confidence about how to identify and work with impediments. Your teams may notice the difference within the next sprint!
Reading the Undercurrents of Team InteractionsWilliam StrydomFounder and PrincipalTEAL TransformationKevin CallahanPrincipal and CoachInteraction Agility
schedule 2 years agoSold Out!
Are you involved with teams? Want to be able to shape team dynamics toward more productive outcomes?
Come dive below the surface of personalities and words to discover the perspectives that shape them.
We’ll learn together and from each other through facilitated hands-on experiences.
You will be able to apply what you learn immediately and directly to improving the quality of interactions.
The efforts of teams is widely regarded to be a competitive differentiator. Being a member of a high-performing team is often reported as a life high point by those who experience it. All around us there is a growing emphasis on teams and teamwork.
Yet effective teams remain elusive. More often groups of people who come together simply cooperate rather than collaborate. They avoid productive conflict, instead engaging in counterproductive discourse.
We can do better. As coaches, we can learn how to read the underlying dynamics that drive team behavior. To enable them to understand what drives their interactions (hint, it’s not the individuals!).
Facilitators will guide the group through a series of experiential activities to teach David Kantor’s Four Player Model and David Kolb’s Experiential Learning Model. Both models are robust and have been thoroughly researched and widely applied.
This may very well be the answer to getting your stuck teams to move beyond their perceived issues toward collaboration and creativity!

The Silent Collaboration ExperienceWilliam StrydomFounder and PrincipalTEAL TransformationJohn HughesSenior Director, Agile PracticeSevatec

Why do we talk? How useful is it?
Let's work together in small teams to make products in complete silence, experiencing how talking both benefits and stifles collaboration.
What does collaboration really mean? How can this experience improve your collaboration?
In this experience, which is modeled after experiments run by Dr. Sallyann Freudenberg and Katherine Kirk, participants will experience a
* 90 minute period of complete silence while working together to build prosthetic hands for charity, noting down each time they have the urge to speak
* 45 minute review period where our facilitators will help us look at what we wanted to say and what happened instead, along with summarizing the outcomes we experienced through silent collaboration so that participants can take back with them these enlightenments.
We will pay particular attention to re-evaluating our model of collaboration and deep diving on the things people still felt like they wanted to say -- Did they really need to? What happened when they couldn't? How did that affect the outcome? We were moved by this experience when we participated in it at Agile2017, and are excited to provide the same experiential learning and awareness of silent collaboration to our community back in DC.
