"Coaching & Mentoring in Self-Organizing Teams", Speaker": David Mantica, East Region (Wilmington & Jacksonville)
Self-Organization and Team Success: Coaching and Mentoring
When stuck on a challenging problem is it better to have one person thinking through the issue or a team of people working together on solving the issue. If you are looking for speed as well as the highest potential for success, the team wins hands down. Self-organized teams is about empowering those that do the work to decide how the work gets done, what to work on and how to break through challenges. It is about enabling autonomy in order to increase speed of output and increase the usability of what is produced.
This session gets to the heart of dynamics that drive self-organization. You can’t just throw the team together and hope for the best. There is a “contract” that needs to be established between the team and leadership. We will discuss the elements of that “contract” the responsibilities of all the parties involved and the problems faced in actualizing. If you are looking to speed up completion of project work, while maintaining quality and matching output to need, self-organization is the tool you can use. This seminar will help you plan the transition correctly.
