Using Agile Techniques to Build a More Inclusive Team
Building psychological safety in your teams is critical if you want them to perform at their best. The challenge is how to develop and encourage the trust and collaboration and to make sure that all voices are heard. The agile community has developed facilitation exercises and tools that make conversations more democratic and inclusive. I have used some of these techniques with my teams for years and have found them incredibly valuable. I will teach you some of the agile methods that I use for large and small team meetings, brainstorms, and one-on-ones that encourage all team members to participate. These tools also help make sure that all voices are respected and valued.

- All my colleagues were in agreement that @KevinGoldsmith's #LeadDevLindon talk (re using agile techniques to build inclusivity) was the one they most wanted to revisit on video. Absolutely packed with useful tips - the one most relevant to me being SHUT UP when doing 1:1s. - Clare Sudbery
