Agile Maine – Hierarchy & Power Games and High-Performance Teams
December 11, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Slides from our session at Agile Maine:
Want awesome teams that thrive in hierarchical organization structures?
We talk about flat structures, self-organization, and holocracy, but the truth is that we all work and live within power structures. How do we navigate hierarchy and power to be our best and do be the best with our teams?
In this session, Richard makes the case for a team culture that’s safe for all team members regardless of the organizational structure around them. Session participants will join in a flight of fun learning activity sets. These will give you a taste of team awesomeness and how to start when you go back to work.
Richard builds on the work of Jim and Michele McCarthy, Geerte Hofstede, and Augusto Boal. His learning activity sets are short games and explorations, using elements from Theatre of the Oppressed, The Core Protocols, Extreme Programming, and more.
Who should attend? Anyone who wants to create a great team and build great products. You’ll leave having embodied the essential elements of accelerated continuous team-building and maintenance.
