This group is for everyone in the DC-MD-VA area to get together, talk Agile, and learn from each other. Each session will start with a presentation on a topic of interest. After that we'll have a discussion period where participants can share challenges that they are facing and get feedback, ideas, and support from the group. The event is free. So come out, join the discussion, and get Agile.
I would like to invite you to join me for a virtual session on Friday 6/21 at 12pm ET. I am delighted to invite you to have Judy Rees with us leading a session on Building Trust In Distributed Teams.
**Please note that this is a virtual session via zoom. The zoom link will be shared before the event.**
Many managers find themselves struggling. They want to know:
* Can you trust remote team members to get the job done efficiently?
* Will they really grasp what's wanted, and why?
* How will they find out that things are going wrong, soon enough to help to fix them?
* Could remote team members be less loyal than you would hope, and how might that manifest?
As a result of these fears, managers of distributed teams often find themselves adopting a "command and control" style - even when they know that this approach has been shown to undermine the very trust they want to build, and itself be a barrier to developing high performance
In this short, highly-interactive online session, you'll learn three specific ways to enhance trust remotely, so that you and your team can develop a richer, more collaborative way of working.
The session will be led by Judy Rees, creator of Collaboration Dynamics - one of the world's first team-development processes designed for distributed contexts. Judy has introduced scores of trainers, coaches, and facilitators to the joy of live online training – including within large organisations such as the RSA.
For the last three years, she’s been the host of one of the world’s first online-video unconferences, Metaphorum, which connects 150 people around the world in a 13-hour live-learning marathon. As a news editor, and later as a media executive, she also managed large remote teams for many years.
The co-author of Clean Language: Revealing Metaphors And Opening Minds, she is a regular keynote speaker at Agile and other events around the world.
