Lead Teams that Deliver the Goods
In software development—and in many life activities—success often depends on how well we collaborate with our team and our stakeholders. Yet getting a group of people to truly work in partnership—let alone self-organize—is a daunting challenge. And we’re often left with lingering tensions, anxieties, and sub-par performance because teams are made up of people with varying degrees of knowledge, skill, and commitment. Although we need our team focused on delivering a great outcome, sometimes egos, personalities, and agendas get in the way. Andy Kaufman asks you to think back in your career to the best team you’ve been a part of and what made it exceptional. Andy explores a model to diagnose what’s going well with your team and identify factors holding them back. How does your team deal with conflict? Do you see gaps in levels of commitment and trust? Are you looking for ways to better motivate and engage people? Andy shares practical ideas to help your team move forward in its ability to deliver the goods and be the best it can be.
