More Awareness, More Agility
Dear Agile Humans, this is our 60th meetup! We are so grateful for your love and support, so we’ve prepared a real treat for you this time. Enter the powerful synergy between mindfulness and Agile methodology, a dynamic partnership that holds the potential to revolutionise how we approach work and life.
In a complex, frantic, and often unpredictable world, business agility is a must-have for most companies. However, there is no single recipe for this tempting sweet. So, the journey soon gets tricky, misunderstandings easily arise, and people are challenged in unexpected ways. Traditional approaches prove to be prone to failing or delivering far less than expected.
To gain business agility, we consider two key elements: organisational development, based on an agile approach, and consciousness growth, based on mindfulness and personal development. Moreover, they should walk hand in hand. Business, technology, organisation and people departments can collaborate more profoundly. In fact, observing closer, it emerges that "agile calls for consciousness" as well as "mindfulness asks for agility".
Mindfulness, at its core, is the practice of cultivating present-moment awareness without judgment. It encourages individuals to fully engage with their thoughts, feelings, and surroundings, fostering a heightened sense of clarity and presence. This mental state provides the foundation for a variety of personal and professional benefits.
Together with Marco Massarotto, our guest speaker and an exceptional Agile Coach with 14 years of experience, we propose the mindfulness-agile synergy for business agility. This is a more integral approach to change, with respect to the traditional ones and the attempts based on just adopting new organisational styles or just reinventing leadership.
At our 60th meetup, we are offering you a chance to:
- Discover how practising mindfulness can enhance your agility, helping you adapt to change and challenges with ease.
- Learn mindfulness techniques that foster self-awareness, better decision-making, and improved stress management.
- Explore how agile principles can be applied not only in the workplace but also in your everyday life to boost productivity and resilience.
- Gain insights from an industry expert who has successfully integrated mindfulness and agility into his life and work.
- Connect with like-minded individuals, exchange ideas, and expand your professional network.
Another amazing Thursday is ahead of us. Save the date, October 5th, and join us online at 6:30 p.m. We promise you valuable knowledge, a great time, and uplifting energy. Thank you for being a part of the Agile Humans meetup community for so long. We’ll see you soon. Cheers!
