In this episode, Lisette Sutherland @lightling and Andy Cleff @justsitthere discuss how to work together anywhere. The biggest takeaway: there isn’t a one-solution-fits-all for remote working, no single formula to follow. Each person, each company, will need to experiment with tools and processes to find what makes him, her, or them most productive. Listen in and learn about the tools available and various processes that can work for different kinds of remote teams.

Success from FailureThe theme of this episode is "How life’s scary moments become great learning experiences."

Bucking the trend of the vast trove of conferences held across the world on a near weekly basis that focus on successes, Andy CleffColleen JohnsonRyan Lockard explore with our guest Tracey Welson Rossman what HASN’T worked: defeats, floundering initiatives, outright failures.

Reflecting on these experiences as “understanding failure as a part of learning” we can inspire each other to keep going when we feel like throwing in the towel.

Agile Married with Children

During this special Valentine's Day episode Lyssa Adkins, Debbie Madden, Brad Stokes, Troy Lightfoot and Andy Cleff have a lively panel discussion on how they use their agile mindsets, those values and beliefs - in their daily lives:

  • With their partners
  • Their children
  • On Thanksgiving and Christmas
  • But, alas not with their pets. (Would have given agility training for fido a whole new meaning!)

Nothing was off the table… well, maybe some things… they kept the episode SFW as they took Software Development out of the Manifesto...

And shared how they apply the guiding principles outside of the team room.

In his first book, Turn the Ship Around! David Marquet described his experiences as captain aboard the nuclear submarine USS Santa Fe. When he took command, the ship was, how shall we say… “underperforming”

However, after one year, Santa Fe was recognized as the most improved ship in the fleet. In less than two years she shed her infamy as the worst boat in the navy and started winning awards as the best ship in her class.

Captain Marquet has released a new workbook to help others apply the framework he developed over those years of experimentation to their own organizations - to build highly effective communities based on personal responsibility and trust.

Leadership is not for the select few at the top. In highly effective organizations, there are leaders at every level.

Lyssa Adkins joins hosts Andrew LeffChris Murman, and Andy Cleff for a wonderful discussion about agile and mindfulness. We explore how the combination contributes to a practice of building meaningful human relationships and liberating organizational potential.

Yep, it can be a tall order to provide service of meaning and purpose; and showing up in the here and now is integral to our success as coaches, practitioners, and partners in change (and in marriage as Lyssa shares...)

Curse of Organizational SilenceThis week, our guests are Carmen Medina and Lois Kelly.

Together they have started a movement: Rebels at Work - which has the goal of empowering people to create change and find more meaning in work.

We discuss the curse of organization silence. An observation that people in all kinds of jobs at all kinds of workplaces reach a point where they want to say, 'Enough.'  They have the same uncomfortable realization: 'I should do something about this.' Yet many remain silent and don’t bring ideas forward.

Lois and Carmen share a number of ways to find your voice, and speak up to challenge what no longer works and lead change - whatever one’s position.

Scaled Agile Framework Demystified

In this week's episode coalition member Brad Stokes joins Ryan Lockard and Jay Hrcsko as they attempt to "demystify" SAFe for listeners who may not have used the Scaled Agile Framework.  Ryan and Jay have opposing viewpoints when it comes to utilizing the "big picture", the role of official training in the effectiveness of utilizing SAFe, as well as a bevy of other topics.  Whether you're pro- or anti-SAFe, this one is definitely a passionate debate!
