Waterloo Agile Lean May 27th P2P – Face Your Fear!

May 14, 2014

What?: Follow Your Fear!

What stops you from doing the things you’ve always wanted to do? What stops teams from truly being great? What hinders most Agile transformations?


Fear:  That feeling in your gut when deep down you know what you need to do, but you’re not sure if you can do it.


Check out any of the “x things most successful people do” posts online. Every single one of them will mention fear. Why? Because fear can either energize you to success or paralyze you into inaction. This goes for you AND for your teams.


Improviser’s have learned how to get energized by fear.


I’ll show you how to take what improvisers’ have learned and apply it to yourself and to your Agile teams. How to create safe environments so that you and your teams can be fearless. I’ll also show you a tool that can help your team get those pesky retrospective action items to done.


Imagine what life would be like if you and your team were able to do all the things you’ve always wanted to do?


What would your team be like if they tackled all those items that come up over and over again in your retrospectives, but never seem to get dealt with?


Want to live a fearless life? Come to this session and follow your fear.
