Building safety as a servant leader: navigating conflict with Erika Lenz

Galvanize - Denver (Golden Triangle)

Missed Erika's session at Mile High Agile 2019 due to full capacity of the room? Were you able to attend Erika's session but can't wait to expereience it again? We are excited for a special evening hosting Erika and her rave reviewed session!!! Please join us for: BUILDING SAFETY AS A SERVANT LEADER: NAVIGATING CONFLICT IN A WAY THE IMPROVES YOUR TEAM Along with shared goals, tools, and boundaries, psychological safety is a pre-requisite for a truly self-organizing team. Research shows that if you can create psychological safety for your teams, they will be more creative, willing to take risks, and speak their mind — just the types of behavior that lead to market breakthroughs and reduce project risk. But how do you cultivate psychological safety on a team? Is conflict ever ok? Yes it is, and it's necessary! This workshop will give participants the chance to practice exercises for building safety and navigating conflict in a fun setting. ABOUT ERIKA: Erika Lenz has worked with project teams across multiple industries and disciplines, including software product development, online learning, consulting, health care, data analysis, UX, journalism, higher education, marketing, and scientific research. This breadth allows her to collaborate with and coach a variety of people, fields of expertise, and contexts. Erika is deeply interested in the human dynamics behind high-performing teams. She focuses on the intersection between developmental culture change and concrete implementation skills, with an emphasis of the healthy implementation of lean-agile principles. She collaborates with and guides agile practitioners through agile adoption, value-stream identification and refinement, portfolio planning, big room planning, and continuous improvement efforts. Erika served as co-chair of Mile High Agile, Denver's volunteer-run, regional conference. She presents regularly at national conferences and local meet-ups. ***Note there is parking on the street around Galvanize. As always, please reach out with any questions or concerns!***

Agile Denver Kanban CoP

Kaiser Permanente Colorado IT Center

Agile Denver Kanban CoP: is a community of practice for practitioners interested in sharing and learning with others about applying lean and agile principles along with flow, pull, and kanban system concepts to assist with catalyzing and effectively managing change to improve their business workflow processes, and to predictably forecast and answer the question “When will it be done?” It is a "special interest group (SIG)" of the Agile Denver group and is also associated with the global Lean & Kanban University and Limited WIP Society. Hi All, This is a general message reminding you that the Agile Denver Kanban SIG meets the 2nd Thursday of each month, except for the month when Mile High Agile occurs (usually April, but has been in May too). Many of us who attend the Agile Denver Kanban SIG also volunteer to help with the MHA Conference, so we limit our WIP in this month. And we also take off the month of December, again most of us are just way to busy this month as well, and we practice what we preach by Limiting our WIP. Please make sure to come back and check out this site often though for postings as our Agile Denver Kanban SIG meetup dates get closer each month. In the meantime check out our past meetups​ to see what's been happening with topics and comments. We hope you'll decide to join us too! Take care, Frank www.vissinc.com
