Stories are the foundation of human experience. They are what define us, individually and collectively. They engage us, entertain us, bring us together and drive us apart.
What stories do you tell about you? Who knows your stories? Everyone? Perhaps just a select few? Maybe, just you.
In this session, we explore how our individual journeys to self-acceptance and alignment are also the heart of how we can work with and support teams. We will learn about how to truly help teams move towards agility, by helping them find and own their process and tell their own story. So they stay aligned and can continually realign when their context changes.
Why authenticity and self-acceptance matters for both individuals and teams.
How to create lasting change in teams, without imposing process or creating learned helplessness.
How to help teams own their process and tell their own story.

John has spent most of the last 2 decades working in the software industry, with a focus on web technologies. After 10 years as a software engineer he moved into consultancy where he quickly learned the value of team dynamics and how most technical challenges are projecting underlying issues with collaboration as he soon recognised that the technological problems he was hired to solve, were rooted not in technology, but in the way teams were collaborating. This led him to research lean and agile ways of working, transforming his practice.
