Event Details

It's your lucky day!  Lyssa's travels are winging her back through town in a couple weeks and she has graciously agreed to spend a little of her precious in-town time with Agile Richmond - yes (fist pump)!

Lyssa will address an important but often unadressed Agile "how".  Namely, If we are to achieve great results through agile, we have to find a way to allow team members to be more fully human which means including the more intense side of team life. Yet, most people find themselves a bit flat-footed or feel overwhelmed when conversations get heated, and especially when they get personal. Very few of us have the skills and experience to navigate intense conversations so when a hot moment arises, we often sidestep it, take it “offline”, or jump in to mediate it. We didn’t learn this stuff in school!  But it’s time to learn it now.  Great solutions and product ideas are at stake!

 Wondering if this topic is for you?  See this 8 minute video interview with Lyssa that describes the session contents just before she gave it at Agile 2014 last month.

 

Lyssa Adkins Lyssa Adkins. Since 2004, I have taught Scrum and Agile Coaching to well over a thousand students, coached many agile teams, and served as master coach to scores of apprentice coaches. In both one-on-one settings and small groups, I enjoy a front-row seat as remarkable agile coaches emerge and go on to entice the very best from the teams and organizations they coach. Prior to agile, I had more than fifteen years of expertise leading project teams and groups of project managers (I was even a PMO Director -- twice!), yet nothing prepared me for the power of agile done simply and well.

 

I believe that agile is more than an alternate project management methodology and I am passionate about deepening the roles in agile – specifically agile coach and agile manager – to help agile move into its fullest expression.

 

I hold an alphabet soup of certifications: Certified Scrum Coach (CSC), Project Management Professional (PMP), Six Sigma Green Belt (SSGB), Organization and Relationship Systems Certified Coach (ORSCC) and Associate Certified Coach (ACC).  I am also a trained Co-Active Coach and Leader.

 

In 2010, I authored Coaching Agile Teams: A Companion for ScrumMasters, Agile Coaches, and Project Managers in Transition
