The Introvert's Survival Guide to Agile
With open work areas, a focus on people and conversations, and group events that seem to require verbal fluency, it sometimes feels like the agile ecosystem is designed with extroverts in mind. But science tells us that introverts make up almost half of the workforce, many of whom may struggle to be productive in an agile environment. In fact, introverts might even shy away from agile opportunities because of the collaboration they require. In this interactive session, Julee Bellomo will begin by helping you learn to recognize the traits of an extrovert and an introvert through self-identification. Building on that discussion, she will identify common prejudices and personal biases, then move into busting myths about introverts. You will explore how introverts can succeed in leadership, taking lessons from modern, well-known introverted leaders. Attendees will take away three specific techniques that they can immediately apply to bring out the best in both personality types. Join Julee to discover how introverts can thrive on teams and how to create a balance between thinking and action.
