Creating Leadership and Engagement at Every Level (David Marquet)

Abstract:
Leadership is not for the select few at the top. In highly effective organizations, there are leaders at every level.
Creating Intent-Based Leadership organizations results in a work place where everyone engages and contributes their full intellectual capacity. A place where people are healthier and happier because they have more control over their work – a place where everyone is a leader.
Intent-Based Leadership organizations create an environment for people to contribute so that they feel valued. They set clear goals so their people know how to do their jobs. They push control and decision making down the organization so people take responsibility and rise to the occasion. They maintain unity of effort by ensuring the supporting pillars of technical competence and organizational clarity are in place.
As a result, they achieve:
• A highly effective organization with superior morale.
• The capacity for greatness in the people and practices of an organization, and remove it from the personality of leaders.
• An organizational culture that creates of additional leaders throughout every level of the organization.
Intent-Based Leadership starts with rejecting the idea that leadership is for the select few at the top and instead embracing in highly effective organizations, there are leaders at every level. This method of leadership is based on empowerment, not ego, and process, not personality.
1. Practical Empowerment: When we give our people more authority, we actually create more effective leaders.
2. Technical Competence: When we engage our minds in what we are doing, we perform with better results.
3. Organizational Clarity: When leaders set clear goals and people know how to do their jobs, we can take deliberate action.

Continuous Delivery in Agile (Jez Humble)

Abstract:
Since the Continuous Delivery book came out in 2010, it’s gone from being a controversial idea to a commonplace… until you consider that many people who say they are doing it aren’t really, and there are still plenty of places that consider it crazy talk. In this session Jez will present some of the highlights and lowlights of the past six years listening to people explain why continuous delivery won’t work, and what he learned in the process.

Banish Your Inner Critic v2.0 (Denise Jacobs)

Abstract:
Creating can be a tortured process. Sadly, this torture is often self-inflicted. The angst is not inherent in the creative process itself, but instead comes from the fears we have around our ability to produce. These fears manifest as the Inner Critic, which is the largest block to the flow of original ideas. But there's good news: you can break the power that Inner Critic wields over you to become a creative powerhouse!
In this talk, we’ll begin by exploring the origins of the Inner Critic and discover the tools that you already possess to vanquish it. Then we’ll dive into methods for dealing with the fear of being judged and criticized, how to transform highly critical self-talk into that of approval and encouragement, and ways to feel like your ideas are good enough and stop committing "ideacide."
By the end, you’ll have a roadmap of how to channel your creativity as a force for positive change in the world. The potential for greatness lies dormant in all of us. Banishing your Inner Critic is the first step to getting back in touch with the highly productive creative badass that you are and sharing your gifts with the world.
