Things That Go Bump in the Night - Conquer Your Scariest Work Problems with Movies and Fun (Joe Ziadeh, Jolene Jangles)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

What are the scariest things your organizations and teams encounter? What are they too afraid to discuss, and smart enough not to ignore?
To learn from our mistakes we need to be brave enough to face them (and have enough fun we want to do it again). In this monster movie themed workshop we'll use activities based on some of the best (and worst) monster movies of all time to help teams surface and face the things they are too afraid to discuss.
To break the ice we'll run through the biggest and scariest problems a sample of Agile teams reported. Then we will work together to discuss your own and uncover possible solutions. When you're done you'll have a series of quick exercises you can take back to your teams so you can face those fears together. And usually only half the attendees need to sleep with the light on that night....

Learning Outcomes:
  • Use a series of games and activities to surface issues students are afraid to confront.
  • Demonstrate how humor and interactive activities can release tension and abate fear.
  • Create a plan to overcome their particular work related fears with buy-in from their team.

I'm happy to talk about anything Agile. But I personally love neuroscience, Training from the Back of the Room, rap, public speaking, innovation games, change management, and team building.
