How to Create a High-Performance Team and Have a Life

You need people to step up, to stretch beyond what they’re doing today. You need to be able to let go of work so you can create, have think-time, and have a life outside of work. How do you do that without resorting to fear and intimidation? In this workshop, Jonathan Raymond, CEO of Refound and author of Good Authority — How to Become the Leader Your Team is Waiting For will teach you the three core skills you need to get it right. You’ll learn: How to delegate not just the work but deep personal ownership over it. How to align with each of your reports on their core personal development theme. How to drive accountability without having to use power or politics.

Discipline as a Leadership Skill: Building and Changing Our Habits

Aristotle famously said, "We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” While habits offer the potential to elevate ourselves and our teams (or derail us completely), they often form by accident rather than deliberate intention. This workshop will explore the psychology of habit formation and offer leader practical techniques for developing new habits and disrupting existing ones as needed.

Mantle, authors of Managing the Unmanageable: Rules, Tools, and Insights for Managing Software People and Teams (http://www.ManagingTheUnmanageable.net).
