AgileSD - Cult(ure)

As a team leader, the line between company culture and a dogmatic cult is thin. Embracing individuality, yet finding alignment as a collective, is tough. Understanding what defines one over another is critical so everyone can bring 100% of themselves to table. In this talk I’m going to talk about the mechanics: finding values, embracing individuality, understanding the role of leadership and empowering every member of the team. I’ll also identify pitfalls, red-flags and a set of questions to ask yourself everyday to make sure that what you have a is “Culture of Talent” and not a “Cult of Conformists”.
