Agile + DevOps East 2018 Concurrent Session : Agile Leadership Conversations in the Fishbowl
Thursday, November 8, 2018 - 1:30pm to 2:30pm

Agile Leadership Conversations in the Fishbowl

Add to calendar

It can be lonely at the top. Trying to find other leaders who are having the same problem and issues you have and are willing to take a few minutes and help solve problems is really hard. One solution that Julie Gardiner has found works well is the "fishbowl" conversation. The fishbowl activity is also great for keeping a focused conversation while in a large group of people. At any time, only a few people have a conversation—the fish in the fishbowl. The remaining people are listeners—the ones watching the fishbowl. The caveat is that the listeners can join the discussion at any moment. In this session, Julie will facilitate this technique while you and the other attendees bring real leadership problems for all participants to learn from each other.
