Abstract/Description

In 2010 I co-organized the first Agile Coach Camp Germany with the theme “Wavemaking - gently creating radical change”. Since then I created plenty of waves, by organizing, hosting and facilitating nearly 100 community events. Those community events gave me plenty of learning opportunities in getting a better host and person. And they provided trusted learning environments, where reams of participants stepped out of their comfort zone and grew.

In the last seven years I failed and learned to take care, to let it go, to resolve conflicts, to keep my and others energy, to trust, to listen, to speak up and to be aware what’s needed. Within this session I share some of my learnings and provide space for the participants to share their learnings too. We will look at smaller community events that only last a few hours and bigger camp style events that last at least a day. If you are already hosting similar events, you will directly benefit from the shared learnings, to make your community meetings better learning environments. If you haven’t hosted an event so far, the shared impressions might inspire you to start your first event.
