    Responding to Change Without Burning Out

    Responding to Change Without Burning Out

    Brandi Olson works at the intersection between learning, organizational agility, and human-centered design. She says: “We put people in a position of having to choose between doing good work and their humanity, and in most cases that’s a false choice.” Listen in as we explore how to recognize burnout in ourselves as well as in our organization, how it’s all about prioritization (whether proactive or reactive), and whether having grace within our team can prevent burnout in the first place.  Leslie Morse hosts. The Women in Agile community champions inclusion and diversity of thought, regardless of gender, and this podcast is a platform to share new voices and stories with the Agile community and the business world, because we believe that everyone is better off when more, diverse ideas are shared.Podcast Library: solutionsiq.com/womeningile Women in Agile website: womeninagile.orgConnect with us on social media!LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/company/womeninagile/Instagram: www.instagram.com/womeninagile/Twitter: twitter.com/womeninagileorg

    The Power to Make Change Comes from Sisterhood

    The Power to Make Change Comes from Sisterhood

    Whether coaching, facilitating or value-stream mapping, Lizzy Morris introduces innovative and pragmatic techniques for promoting team engagement and accountability. She believes it is women who will catalyze change in society. We are living in another Civil Rights movement. During the 60’s, people who supported the movement saw their businesses burnt down and they lost customers. Although the environment is different now and you might not see flaming crosses, there is still a risk today. What will happen to you today when you become an ally? “We have to realize our united power to make real change, the kind of change we want...is going to come from sisterhood.” Leslie Morse hosts.  The Women in Agile community champions inclusion and diversity of thought, regardless of gender, and this podcast is a platform to share new voices and stories with the Agile community and the business world, because we believe that everyone is better off when more, diverse ideas are shared.Podcast Library: solutionsiq.com/womeningile Women in Agile website: womeninagile.orgConnect with us on social media!LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/company/womeninagile/Instagram: www.instagram.com/womeninagile/Twitter: twitter.com/womeninagileorg

    Merging Agile and Hawaiian Wisdom

    Merging Agile and Hawaiian Wisdom

    Erin Kaohelaulii-Brett wakes up every day ready to motivate others to be a catalyst for change. An agile coach in the healthcare insurance industry, she shares her unique story of going from super skeptical to change champion – all while finding ways to integrate lessons from Hawaiian language and culture into her daily work.  The agile transformation initiative at her employer started strong then fizzled after the external consultants rolled off. Kaohelaulii-Brett invokes the Hawaiian concept of an ahupuaʻa (a communal land division stretching from the mountain to the ocean where natural resources were cultivated and exchanged) that thrived for years because of strong teamwork. “You needed that teamwork to survive back then… Just looking back at my ancestors and how they were able to survive and thrive, I’m like, ‘I can do this.’” Leslie Morse hosts. The Women in Agile community champions inclusion and diversity of thought, regardless of gender, and this podcast is a platform to share new voices and stories with the Agile community and the business world, because we believe that everyone is better off when more, diverse ideas are shared.Podcast Library: solutionsiq.com/womeningile Women in Agile website: womeninagile.orgConnect with us on social media!LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/company/womeninagile/Instagram: www.instagram.com/womeninagile/Twitter: twitter.com/womeninagileorg

    Blatant Gender Discrimination in the Agile Community

    Blatant Gender Discrimination in the Agile Community

    Dana James-Edwards is an agilist through-and-through. She is leveraging her talent in this area as she transitions her career focus solely towards enabling companies to come to grips with what it takes to truly enable diversity and inclusion.  This kind of conversation is the reason we launched this podcast, to give voice to the stories of women who are still discriminated against in our agile community. James-Edwards, herself a black woman with years of experience working in technology, shares a heart-wrenching example of an organization she encountered just this year where women working as agile coaches “were being put in the corner, were being put in the backseat, were being disrespected, were being overlooked for promotions.”  She also gives advice for how to catalyze change in your own organization.  “There was a period where being black took a backseat to being female.” Leslie Morse hosts. The Women in Agile community champions inclusion and diversity of thought, regardless of gender, and this podcast is a platform to share new voices and stories with the Agile community and the business world, because we believe that everyone is better off when more, diverse ideas are shared.Podcast Library: solutionsiq.com/womeningile Women in Agile website: womeninagile.orgConnect with us on social media!LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/company/womeninagile/Instagram: www.instagram.com/womeninagile/Twitter: twitter.com/womeninagileorg

    Exploring the Duality of Agile Coaching

    Exploring the Duality of Agile Coaching

    Maaike Klasen is a scrum master as well as a certified professional coach with the International Coaching Federation, where she also holds a board position. She joins us virtually from the Netherlands to speak about how to fully occupy the duality in the role of a scrum master or agile coach, a balance many in the industry must learn to strike. We touch on coaching vs. consulting, confidentiality in performance reviews, and how coaching ethics play a part.  “Sometimes it’s difficult to recognize a conflict of interest and that’s where the code of ethics helps.” Leslie Morse hosts.   The Women in Agile community champions inclusion and diversity of thought, regardless of gender, and this podcast is a platform to share new voices and stories with the Agile community and the business world, because we believe that everyone is better off when more, diverse ideas are shared.Podcast Library: solutionsiq.com/womeningile Women in Agile website: womeninagile.orgConnect with us on social media!LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/company/womeninagile/Instagram: www.instagram.com/womeninagile/Twitter: twitter.com/womeninagileorg

    Leading an Agile Marketing Organization

    Leading an Agile Marketing Organization

    Melissa Reeve is the Vice President of Marketing at Scaled Agile and has a talent for creating growth wherever she is, may that be in people, business, or in her own garden. Reeve shares her agile journey (so far!) and how she has changed her style from leading as a conductor - orchestrating and controlling her teams - to an emerging Agile leader, supporting and growing her teams, one moment at a time. She has learned to have empathy for those who learned traditional management theories, which is a lot of years of learning and mental models to unwind. And in the case of the Global 2000, many of the leaders fall into that category.  “I didn’t realize I’d become agile until I encountered others in marketing environments who are not.” Leslie Morse hosts. The Women in Agile community champions inclusion and diversity of thought, regardless of gender, and this podcast is a platform to share new voices and stories with the Agile community and the business world, because we believe that everyone is better off when more, diverse ideas are shared.Podcast Library: www.solutionsiq.com/womeninagileWomen in Agile website: womeninagile.orgConnect with us on social media!LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/company/womeninagile/Instagram: www.instagram.com/womeninagile/Twitter: twitter.com/womeninagileorg

Leading an Agile Marketing Organization

Loved hearing the views how Agile can be used in the Marketing organizations and how women as thought leaders took it to the next level by applying Agile Manifesto in their business setting and practiced in their daily life and how they benefit from it.
