Inspiring Teams while Facing Reality

The first step of navigating a crisis is to ensure the safety of the team and stabilize the business. But what happens next? Do you feel ready for it? How do you rapidly adapt from being a culture of working shoulder-to-shoulder in an open space, sharing computers and being in conversation all day long to a 100% remote culture? What new approaches are needed, how do you make longstanding practices of daily standups, pair programming and visual management hold up when everyone is working from home? How do you keep the team informed, run new experiments and keep morale high? As the world slowly begins to find its new normal, leaders find themselves in a constantly changing situation. Fear can take over, teams can become distracted, sales outlooks can be far from favorable. Critical leadership skills of empathy, listening, and communication are required as leaders steer their teams out of chaos and into a ‘new normal’.

Join Richard Sheridan, CEO and co-founder of Menlo Innovations and author of best-selling books ‘Joy, Inc.’ and ‘Chief Joy Officer’ and Andrea Tomasini, CSO and co-founder of agile42 and author of ‘ORGANIC agility: Leadership & Organization’ as they share leadership challenges they have faced in this crisis, providing insights into how leaders can take action to lead their teams out of this unexpected situation. Both ORGANIC agility and Menlo share a similar approach in providing leaders with a framework to lead with empathy, recognize the potential of people around you, and focus on lifting the energy of the team.
