Give Control, Create Leaders… teaching “bosses” to be leaders.
Some schools of Lean talk about “Leader Standard Work” but this term is often misunderstood to mean “Leader Standard Practices”. In order to effectively lead people we must know how to serve them. Agile has used the term “servant leader” for some time now, but if you understand real leadership you know that term is redundant.
Strategic leaders understand what the purpose of not only their own position is but the purpose of their organization. They understand what gets their employees out of bed and through the front door of the office every morning and works hard to support those people.
In this session we’re going to learn how to be an effective leader using “leader standard work” unlike any you’ve ever seen before. We’ll learn exactly what managers, directors and VPs in effective agile organizations do to help their reports, and how to adapt the work of David Marquet to software organizations.
