Event description

Description

We want the world to live in the maximum possible love and greatness.

We feel GLAD, SAD, MAD and AFRAID.

We have tolerated and suffered the consequences of our own mediocrity, broken promises, drama, selfishness and separation for too long. We are responsible to eliminate tolerance for mediocrity in ourselves.

We observe that GREATER LIFE emanates from more SELF-AWARENESS, FAITH, HOPE, PASSION, COURAGE, WISDOM, JOY, LOVE, INTEGRITY, VULNERABILITY, SAFETY and TRUST.

We have some of the tools – the CORE COMMITMENTS and PROTOCOLS – to help encode and deliver these virtues and ignite people to a greater life.

WE ARE IN.

Will you join us?

The next opportunity will be in Paris, for a non-stop 24 hours conference.

Awesome Teams

Want awesome teams that build great products? Great teams don’t happen by accident. And they don’t have to take a long time to build.

In this session, Richard lays out the case for Continuous Teaming. 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, Google, Bruce Tuckman, Gamasutra, Standish Group, Peter Drucker, and Melvin Conway. His learning activity-sets are short games, using elements from improvisational theater, The Core Protocols, Extreme Programming, and more.

Who should attend? Anyone who wants to create great teams and build great products. You’ll leave having embodied the essential elements of accelerated continuous team-building and awesomeness maintenance.

host: Richard Kasperoski

Open Space Agility

Most of us work in an industry in which we need the creativity and problem solving ingenuity that currently resides in the resource we call “people”. My belief is that the most important thing to scale is engagement. There is no such thing as a successful change program without high levels of human engagement.

Open Space Agility (OSA) starts and ends with using Open Space technology. In between the organization experiments and learns from methods and practices that align with the agile manifesto. Not just employees experiment with agile practices, also formally authorized leadership experiments with them. Experimentation reduces anxiety because nothing is set in stone, it explores what works and what doesn’t for the people involved.

The two main outcomes of Open Space Agility are high employee engagement and continuous organizational learning.

Open Space sessions frame an organization wide iteration and retrospection of the agile transformation. Each Open Space creates proceedings (the outcomes of the sessions) that are acted upon by the leadership team. There is clear feedback to the organization which advice will be implemented but also what can’t be done yet.

It implements Agility in an Agile way, using Pull, not PUSH, using Invitation, not force, and works in increments, not one big push. The increments provide the feeling of progress for your transformation.

Based on the preferences of the attendees we'll talk about and experience some of the important elements in OSA like invitation, experiments, human needs, Open Space Technology, storytelling, games, authorization, passage rites or the role of the coach.

Examples of possible active involvement of the participants:
- authorization; follow the leader game
- open space: a small lean coffee
- a storytelling exercise.

hosts: Astrid Claessen & Silvana Wasitova

Astrid: I have always looked around me and saw things that could be improved upon. That is why continuous improvement resonates with me so strongly..... our would that be because of my struggle with perfectionism? With experience in almost every role available in product development I'm able to understand the challenges teams face when dancing with uncertainty. Using that understanding I can help them overcome obstacles along their way. Experience working abroad in: India, Mozambique, Rwanda, Tanzania, Hong Kong, Indonesia and China. This helps me understand more of the cultural aspect, which is a big part of any Agile transformation.
Silvana Wasitova : Silvana helps teams and companies achieve better results through applying Agile values and practices. Scrum practitioner since 2005. Silvana lives and breathes the agile value of “People over Process”, and brings that to the forefront of her coaching approaches while still focused on the client’s audacious goals and desired results. Silvana has actively aided multinational enterprise Agile transformations in United States and across Europe, including in Yahoo, Nestle, Roche, Skype, Microsoft, Aviva and a private Swiss bank.

Future of Work

host: Usha Gubbala

As you may know, at August, we operate as a self-managing company, and central part of our mission and purpose is to transform organizations' capacity to do great things in the world by harnessing the potential of their people. As I pursue that mission, every day in my work with clients, and within our team at August, I see the ways in which we all struggle to navigate the messiness that comes with that commitment to including and engaging the greatness of every person within the organization. When we try to include everybody, inevitably we run into friction. In working with that friction, each person in their way is called into deeper vulnerability and greater emotional authenticity. This is a really scary place for most people. And yet, this friction and the vulnerability and authenticity that it demands, is the birth place of true creativity, meaning, and innovation. I would love to share with the Greatness Guild audience, how I've learned to work with this friction and support them through it. Specifically I will be speaking about three key practices to integrate into individual and team leadership: inclusion, emotional intelligence, and presence. In sharing a few simple, impactful practices, my hope is that individuals and teams can begin to cultivate the skillful means necessary in the commitment to being extraordinary individuals and teams and engaging transformation in the world.

Braving Trust

There are many definitions of trust. Brené Brown's BRAVING acronym outshines them all. Also known as the anatomy of trust it accurately describes what is needed for trust to have a chance to grow. This session delves into the BRAVING acronym and how you can use it to talk about trust issues without getting into a minefield; to enhance your own trustworthiness; and to grow your own self trust. The latter perhaps being the most important as self trust greatly enhances your capacity for trusting others.

host: Marjan Venema

I am an agile advocate and coach coming from a background of 30+ years of software development. Currently still in a mixed role, I am looking for my first dedicated coaching position. When I am not working, I am Taiko drumming, keeping Sofie and Lizzie (dog & cat) amused or playing with my cabrio (convertible) on mountain roads. I hold certificates from ICAgile: ICAgile Certified Professional Agile Coaching (ICP ACC), Scrum.org: Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) and Management 3.0. I am a proud and active member of Happy Melly and the Agile Uprising Coalition and signed the oath of non allegiance as soon as I became aware of its existence. Publications: Agility Fan (https://medium.com/agilityfan) and Software on a String (http://softwareonastring.com/)

The Zone of Genius

Greatness is not all about what you see, it is first something you create from within. Once you become aware of it and are able to master it in order to create an end result, your life completely change and you start seeing results without much effort. I deeply believe we all have greatness within us. One of the most important elements is what makes someone special :"Her or His Zone of Genius". It's like DNA, everyone has a unique combination that sets them apart. So What is it all about? How to discover it and why it matters? What difference can it make? How can you transform your life?

host: Assia Djahafi

I am a certified mindset coach with over 10 years experience in marketing and communication. I help entrepreneurs discover their zone of genius, understand their limiting beliefs and find ways to hack themselves so they can start running their life and business, and not the other way around.
