Reality-based, agile-driven lessons for creating and running the kind of work environment needed to change the world – one team at a time.
Your leadership evolution
Work Life Doesn’t Have to Suck. You’re the Leader. Fix it.
In today’s world, all organizations are time-starved and resource-poor given what they’re asked to do—this isn’t going to change. But they don’t have to be political or neurotic. Work can be a place of meaning, of contribution, with pride in craftsmanship and infectious cultural energy—a place where people are as excited to come to work in the morning as they are to go home in the evening—if you design it into the system. Our in-real-life experience shows you the way.
Create and Master
Product Development is difficult. Regularly developing a product that people want to use is challenging. You are working to solve a problem that is often ill-defined with limited resources using an unforgiving language. Do your projects never end? Do your product development teams struggle to collaborate? Does it take you “forever” to realize value from your efforts? You’re the leader. Fix it.
Is your organization in a rut? Are you tired of your organization not being held in higher regard? Has your organization become complacent? Do you fear your organization’s descent into irrelevance? Maybe you are just fundamentally unhappy with your organization’s status quo. The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth. You’re the leader. Fix it.
Resistance to Change
Apathy. Ignorance. Skepticism. Cynicism. Passive Aggression. Guerrilla-style sabotage. Outright resistance to change. Has the irresistible force of your change effort run into the immovable object of organizational resistance? You’re the leader. Fix it.
