Have you ever wondered why certain approaches seem to work in one organization but not in another? Unfortunately, when thinking about Agile Methodologies as means to build successful products, many organizations and coaches focus their efforts on the artifacts, meetings and roles; setting the most important matter aside: the relationships among the individuals. And no, just stating a general value of 'Individuals and interactions over processes and tools' is not sufficient, building relationships takes work.
This session explores the basic relationships that drive human interactions in a working environment, how to identify bad relationship smells, and what you can do as a coach to help prevent or recover a team from their toxic relationships. Martin shares his experiences with the difference between assertions and opinions, what unconditional responsibility is, the power of continuous and effective feedback, trust, learning, emotions and commitments. Show up for this fantastic trip through personal relationships to help create a path towards achieving amazing results through healthy results!
