Swearing, Nudity and Other Vulnerable Positions - John Le Drew

Over 3 months John recorded over 75 hours of interviews and spoke to some of the most respected people in the industry to produce an audio documentary that attempts to answer the question “What is safety? And why is it important anyway?”

This highly interactive talk will present the findings and guide and challenge you through a journey to understanding safety. Including short interactive sessions and role play exercises to cover the following topics:

• What is safety?

• What are the elements that make a team effective?

• Is psychological safety the foundation to team performance?

• What can we all do to help foster psychological safety in our teams?

• What is the relationship between safety, stress and engagement?

• What is the profound impact of a lack of safety and engagement on society?

Check out a short preview of the session below and for more details see here (http://wisenoodle.me/talks/the-product-owner-is-an-agile-anti-pattern).


About John
John has spent most of the last 2 decades working in the software industry, with a focus on web technologies.

So his focus shifted, while still being very involved technically, his first focus is on facilitating a safe, creative, collaborative environment. John also produces The Agile Path (http://www.agilepath.fm) podcast.
