Projects and agile processes fail when people fail to lead. This workshop is about putting the how-to techniques used at 120VC in your hands.

You will learn two simple game-changing methods to earn credibility and 6 leadership techniques that can be put into practice immediately. Unlock the transformative power of GSD by putting the focus on developing your leadership skills and of every person on your team.

Are you tired of hearing that most projects fail because of poor
communication? The frustration you feel is probably because you
instinctively understand the following:

1. Projects don’t fail; they don’t have a heartbeat or a social
security number. People fail.

2. Communication is simply the vehicle we use to lead.

3. Blaming failure on communication is the greatest obstacle to
addressing the lack of leadership skills that lead to undesirable

If we were to simplify the success criteria for a leader, it would be “they enable their team to get sh*t done that creates value for their organization.” When organizations focus on improving communication, they generally add processes and guidelines that increase the workload on teams that are already struggling to deliver the desired results. But it’s easier to use communication as the scapegoat than it is to admit they “suck at leadership!” The solution is to focus on developing the leadership skills of each of their team members regardless of their title. The basic foundation of an agile organization, an agile mindset, and teamwork is that “everyone is a leader.” Increasing the Leadership Quotient (LQ) in an organization, and getting “lean” with the process will lead to more successful projects and desired outcomes.
