This workshop is structured to understand agile by first analyzing the values and principles of an effective agile team.

Many teams, over time, succumb to internal pressures and conflicts. This 4-day workshop applies a team norming process by focusing the team in the same direction, supporting and provoking team members in a constructive manner, creating an environment that targets solutions, driving in making decisions about the level of responsibility of each member.

    One-to-One Coaching

    • One to one performance coaching covering two types of needs, development and corrective needs to many different corporate situations.
      Start-ups: Provide coaching while producing results. Transforming owner’s idea into real and measurable goals.
      Small or fast-growing businesses: Develop skills to manage larger businesses and the growing number of people needed to be employed.
      During times of organizational change, a requirement for significant behavior and attitude shift is necessary for some employees in order to fit in with new structures or cultures.
      Changes in job role: New position that requires different skills and abilities.
      Developing the skills of valuable technical experts: while certain employees have high levels of specific skills and experience, it may be appropriate to improve/develop some of their other skills (interpersonal/managerial).
      Future leaders or senior executives: may be hesitant to attend a training course as they may feel that they should already have the skills and expertise. Coaching is a confidential, personal and safe development option. It is a common secret that all accomplished and successful leaders have personal business coaches.
      Already having a specific goal, the coach can lead through the 6 steps to its fulfilment: (i) goal analysis (ii) action plan preparation (iii) tasks prioritization (iv) actions implementation (v) progress monitoring (vi) right mindset creation.

    Agile toolbox – Daily Stand-up timer

    One team I was working with repeatedly decided that they should really limit the Daily Stand – up meeting to 15 minutes, but never succeeded to accomplish it. One day I placed my tablet on a small table (that happened to be positioned in front of the wall) and started a timer. I didn’t explain why.
    That simple thing made everyone slightly more focused and avoided a lot of detail derailing. And voilà! As if the tablet held a secret superpower, the Daily Stand -up meetings most of the times finished well below 15 mins.

    Note: The goal of the Daily Stand – up meeting is of course not to finish within 15 minutes, it is to figure out how we as a team need to collaborate today to accomplish our goals.

    Stay busy or become productive?
    Many of us often complain about not having enough time for all the things that we need to get done. We are just too busy running errands, ticking off checklists, responding to emails, attending meetings, putting out fires, while trying to juggle numerous projects and tasks all at the same time.
    Being busy gives people a false sense of purpose and significance. They feel as though they are being productive, but in reality, they are simply stuck in very limiting patterns of behavior that often lead to higher levels of stress, anxiety, overwhelm, frustration and emotional fatigue. Life becomes an endless struggle — very much like trying to chase down a train that has long left the station.
    5 steps to lead yourself from being busy to becoming productive:
  • Immediately Stop and Think what kinds of tasks, activities and/or behaviors are a waste of time.
  • Question the Activity, having recognized an unproductive activity, it’s critical now that you begin questioning the long-term consequences of the choices you have made.
  • Separate Yourself Physically and Emotionally, you may for instance choose to go for a quick walk around the block or just to another room. This walk will provide you with greater clarity and perspective so that you can view yourself within the situation in an unattached way.

  • Remind Yourself What’s Important what truly matters when you take into consideration your long-term goals and objective Take Immediate Action, identify the activity with the highest long-term payoffs and benefits, and begin working on it today without further delay.

    Have you considered Virtual Meetings?
    Next time you have a meeting with your client in another city, request them for a Skype call. Using latest technology, you can save a lot on travelling expenses. We push for a Skype call even when the meetings are within the same city. I understand that a first meeting is important and should be done face-to-face but all follow-up meetings can be done virtually.

    Check for unnecessary expenses.
    Many small-business owners end up with expenses over time that they no longer need. We recommend reviewing your budget with a magnifying glass and making sure all of your expenses are still necessary. For example, perhaps you purchased a magazine subscription a long time ago that you no one reads.
    Check all such expenses and get rid of unnecessary ones.

    Go Green and Save !
    Going green is not only a great PR move, it’s also a smart financial move, according to Shel Horowitz, author of ‘Guerrilla Marketing Goes Green: Winning Strategies to Improve Your Profits and Your Planet’.
    Horowitz recommends simple moves such as keeping equipment on a power strip and turning it off when not in use or replacing your existing printer with one that prints on both sides of the paper, thus reducing paper waste and cost.
    Since the object of many environmentally friendly changes is to save energy, and you have to pay for the energy your business uses, if you can reduce energy use you will also be reducing your costs.
