Create Influence, On Demand
From addressing resistance to change to instilling self-direction in teams, Agile relies on Influence rather than Authority. Agile practices like co-location and standups actually amplify influence by leveraging behavior patterns built in to humans through biology and social conditions. This workshop teases apart those patterns, turning them into conscious tools for leadership through influence. Exercises take participants through the application and practice of techniques to lower resistance to communication, whether face to face or over a phone. This session is ideal for anyone seeking to tap the latent genius present in the people, teams and businesses with whom they work in order to accelerate the arrival of high performance.
Learning Outcomes:
  • Participants will
  • • Grasp the full power of practices like standups, co-location and task boards, and how each leverages communication programming built-in to human beings
  • • Amplify their ability to influence by quickly establishing Rapport
  • • Understand How to build Rapport with both Voice and Physiology
  • • Understand How to use Rapport to Pace and Lead Teams and Individuals
  • • Practice building Rapport, as well as breaking it (helpful when pulling discussions out of ratholes)
  • • Be able to immediately apply these techniques, even when constrained to no more than a telephone call
