The Art of Leading a Team that #GSD

90-Min Talk


Nobody hires a leader because they want their organization to be the same in a month, 6 months, or a year. Leaders see what's next and lead their stakeholders to make what's new. To make things that matter, that solve a problem people think they have.

About This Talk

And ... effective leadership starts by creating a culture of discipline, trust, transparency, and accountability. This type of leadership requires that a leader is prepared, intentional about their goals and the battles they fight, and, that they are outcome obsessed.

The leadership model we predominantly see today is the "Cowboy-Up", "Show-Up, and Throw-Up," "Manage Expectations," and "Cross Our Fingers and Hope for the Best." When this approach leads to less than optimal results from the responsible teams, these managers think it's their job to "Hold Employees Accountable."

When holding people accountable doesn't work, they blame their transformation disciplines. They focus on fixing their Project Management, Agile, Scrum, DevOps, SAFe, and Change Management processes and frameworks. And when all else fails they call 120VC.

Join J. Scott Founder of 120VC, "The GSD Company," and learn how to be a leader that puts the foundation in place for a culture of discipline, trust, transparency, and accountability in service of building a high-performing team that Gets Sh*t Done that matters. You will walk away with tools and techniques proven to drive better outcomes, and that will set the foundation for improving the outcomes from your transformation disciplines.
