Have you ever felt frustrated by conflict and opposition? Wondered why great ideas you bring to your team or organization get ignored, and impediments are created by people who “just don’t get it?” Have you noticed that teaching agile doesn’t create the buy-in you need to make progress? Would you like to fix that, to be able to turn conflict into collaboration, even in high stakes situations? If this resonates with you and your team join Joel Foner, Results Improvement Coach, for an interactive discussion on how to turn conflict into collaboration.
