The book Tribal Leadership introduces five stages that represent a range of behaviors that tribes (ie.: groups of 20 or more people) act and think together. These stages range from Stage 1 where “Life Sucks!” to Stage 5 where “Life is Great!”. Most software development teams (and most workplaces) live in the three stages in between.
This talk takes group development model presented in Tribal Leadership and helps coaches, scrum masters, team leaders and managers better understand some of the behaviors they may see every day in their agile software development teams. Participants will experience and explore the stages in various ways such as through music and an interactive game called “Guess that Tribal Stage”.
“Steffan’s work really brings together the worlds of Tribal Leadership and Agile software development in an interesting way. I think highly of him and how he brings these worlds together in a clear and simple way.”
Dave Logan, co-author of the NY Times best-selling book Tribal Leadership
