Cultivating Attention: the Secret of Agile Team Success, with Joe Anderson Why do some collaborative teams work together beautifully, while others can't stay in synch? In this session we'll explore the surprisingly simple factor that keeps teams aligned even when the pressure is on: paying attention. - We'll investigate the neuroscience--the busy, tribal, biased, and reactive brain--that explains why team alignment is such a challenge. - You'll learn simple techniques for developing the stable attention that is the prerequisite for team alignment. - You'll take away specific practices to build the habit of attention for yourself and your Agile or cross-functional team so you can stay aligned in the midst of incidents, releases, org changes, and other forms of everyday stress. In particular, we'll look at: - Stable attention so your team can focus on what's important. - Connectedness so your team can collaborate effectively. - Open-Mindedness so your team can make good decisions that stick. - Self-Awareness so your team can find resilience in the face of change. Joe Anderson is the author of Cultivating Attention: the Paradoxical Secret of Team Success (Kerykeion Press, 2019). As a consultant and program manager he has helped teams succeed at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Getty Images, Microsoft, and many other organizations.
