Does Your Team Need Psychotherapy?

TBD - Newport News, VA

Abstract: Experienced Agilists know that new ways of working are not sustainable apart from deep culture change. But their teams’ cultural artifacts— values statements, social contracts, and other "intangibles"—are not effective because they are not actionable and measurable. This session will provide new tools for the Agile toolbox: simple, psychotherapeutic principles and practices, proven to build high-performing teams and transform organizational culture, that may be introduced subtly by any Agile leader. We will walk through a simple Agile retrospective to demonstrate one way high-performing Agile teams are beginning to integrate psychotherapeutic techniques. Agenda: 6:00 - 6:25 - Networking 6:25 - 6:30 - Community Announcements 6:30 - 7:45 - Presentation 7:45 - 8:00 - Cleanup and Networking Bio: A former CIO, Maurice “Mo” Hagar is an enterprise Agile coach based in the USA.
