    Ceri Newton-Sargunar - Your Brain's Responses to Work and Colleagues - is it a friend or foe?

    Ceri Newton-Sargunar - Your Brain's Responses to Work and Colleagues - is it a friend or foe?

    Ceri is an Agile Behavioural Coach, an ex-teacher, and a neuroscientist-in-training, with almost a decade of hands-on agile experience. She has worked in the public and private sectors, with large organisations, SMEs, and start-ups, and now coaches and trains agile teams and agile professionals looking to improve their ways of working.
    Well-versed in Agile ways of thinking, being, and doing, Ceri works with individuals and teams to focus on helping brilliant people to work more effectively with each other, deliver value to organisations and help them thrive.
    Ceri works at all levels of organisations to stop information from falling through gaps by improving interactions and helps use team dynamics to turn unhealthy conflict around, increase understanding and shape culture with better top-down and bottom-up communications.

    What we discuss with Ceri Netwon-Sargunar:
    How fear sits behind a lot of the issues around communicationHow much you are willing to learn is how much you are afraid of the outcomeWhy a lot of leaders avoid giving feedbackWhy the idea of "this is just who I am" is hugely flawedHow we are constantly able to adapt and learn new behaviours right up until the day we dieWhy do employees hide the truth from the people in power Why psychometric tests should only be taken as a snapshot in time and how they can wildly differ for you over timeHow rare it is for a company to drive solely towards outcomes instead of outputsHow you can measure your outcomes with one simple measureWhat causes people to be really defensive in conversationsWhy there is a limit on what you can achieve only by addressing a team's behaviour and what you need to do to break that capWhy it's easy to form a bond within peer groups but much harder between the team and the leaderHow people take a lot of identity from the success of their ideasWhy it's not the mistake that generally people are responding to when they judge you. It's your reaction to that mistakeLinks relating to this episode:
