What we're about

The Bay Area Agile Leadership Network (BayALN) was founded in 2006 to support a community of practice in the greater San Francisco Bay Area. We provide a forum for sharing practical experiences and advice. We also explore and develop Agile techniques, understanding and practices at the project, department, organization and enterprise levels.

Meeting Madness! How to tame the biggest waste of time

Online event

Surveys show that meetings are the greatest waste of time at work. We attend many meetings out of the fear of missing out without a clear sense of how we are expected to contribute or how they might support our work. As a result we improvise and get lost in tangents largely driven by power dynamics and the personality quirks of the people in the room. That sucks! This session will provide you with everything you didn’t know that you didn’t know to make your meetings both productive and valuable. You’ll take away a checklist of how to design, prepare, and facilitate great meetings - meetings that just work! Learning outcomes: * The types of meetings and their prerequisite ingredients * The deeper structure of meetings beyond the beginning, middle, and end * The skills to master and the difference-makers that make the difference

Online Agile Peer Coaching/Mentoring Group

Online event

Bay Area Agile Leadership Network - Online Monthly Peer Coaching/Mentoring Group From the BayALN community we heard a need to expand our connection between meetups and practice the art of mentoring and coaching. To meet this need, we’ve created a small online group that meets monthly to provide a space for this practice. In these sessions participants will: - get a chance to receive coaching from the group - have a chance to practice coaching in a safe and supportive environment - share knowledge, wisdom, and explore coaching together - network and build closer connections with other participants A slack channel is also available for the group to coordinate or ask questions before any sessions. Hosts are Huy Nguyen ([masked]) and Lisa Engelbert ([masked]) if you have any questions or would like to be added to Slack. And be sure to visit our group sponsor to see about other exciting events, the Bay Area Agile Leadership Network (https://www.meetup.com/BayALN/).
