Braving Trust

About this Workshop

Agile teams expect their members to be open and transparent. To show up. To open themselves up to the scrutiny of their peers and stakeholders and make themselves vulnerable to their words and actions. Lack of trust is one of the highest, if not the highest, hidden cost in business today - as without trust and the willingness to be vulnerable, there can be no innovation, creativity or change.

Yet agile training programmes don't address trust. Nor do any other training programmes. It's as if everyone figures it's someone else's responsibility to make it happen.

This workshop will introduce Brené Brown's BRAVING acronym, which describes everything that goes into trust and the living BIG concept that is taken from that. It will follow that introduction with exercises for assessing your level of self-trust in these terms and what you can do to improve it.

You'll leave with a clear path forward to having more self-trust, enabling you to function and perform better in agile teams.

About the Speaker

I am an agile advocate and coach coming from a background of 30+ years of software development. Currently still in a mixed role, I am looking for my first dedicated coaching position.

When I am not working, I am Taiko drumming, keeping Sofie and Lizzie (my dog and cat) amused or playing with my cabrio (convertible) on mountain roads.

I hold certificates from ICAgile: ICAgile Certified Professional ­Agile Coaching (ICP-ACC), Professional Scrum Master I (PSM I) and Management 3.0. I am a proud and active member of Happy Melly and the Agile Uprising Coalition, and signed the oath of non­allegiance as soon as I became aware of its existence.

I blog at Agility Fan and Software on a String.
