As a Scrum Master or Agile Leader, one of your responsibilities is to facilitate various agile ceremonies to help teams become better at what they do. If you are among the 30-50% of people who are on the introverted side of the introvert/extrovert spectrum, it may be daunting for you to stand up in front of people and lead this type of work, especially if you're new in your role or new to the team.
This session will give a brief introduction to introversion, highlight some strengths introverts have, and provide tips for how to use those strengths and introvert characteristics before, during and after conducting a particular team ceremony: the retrospective. This is a highly interactive session in which our combined knowledge and experience will enrich the learning of the group as a whole.

Learning Outcomes:
  • What characterizes introversion
  • Strengths of introversion
  • How you can use introverted strengths in retrospective facilitation - before, during and after
  • How you can help introverted team members participate in retrospectives
