Four Letter words to describe your teammates
by Tiffany Powley
Do you ever struggle to find just the right four letter word to describe your Agile teammates? This workshop will give you some suggestions! But the four letter words you’ll find will NOT be words censored in the media. Instead, the “words” are the four letter types of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI).
Everyone will leave this session armed with professionally appropriate four letter “words” that can help you understand how individuals and groups take in information and how they make informed decisions. We'll also discuss tips and tricks you can use to improve your interpersonal interactions and more effectively facilitate Agile ceremonies.
Since being introduced to iterations in 2001, Tiffany Powley embraced the Agile mindset of iterative development, fail fast, and experimenting.
After becoming certified to administer the Meyers-Briggs Type Indicator in the 1990's I started using the concepts in all aspects of my life, but especially in working with collaborative teams. I've been in various roles in my career - developer, manager, ScrumMaster, coach. Working with people, learning, and helping others are some of my deepest passions.
After reading the book "The Leadership Self-deception", I started working hard at staying out of the box. Most recently, I attended training and became certified to teach Crucial Conversations at my workplace, Dell Boomi (who is always hiring!). The concepts and skills of Crucial Conversations have profoundly and positively altered my interactions with co-workers, friends, and family.
