Attaining Escape Velocity

Room: Pacifica 6-7
Track: PechaKucha
Session Type: PechaKucha
Summary: You possess a myriad of skills, your own, unique concoction. They are what make you inimitable. There is
power in your uniqueness; a wholeness, a balance.
When you came into your organization, you may have been hypnotized by its culture or one of its subcultures.
Only a fraction of you was actually welcome and you've become unbalanced and with it,
diminished in your ability to achieve your own goals or those of the organization. That's probably why
you're here at this Scrum Gathering.
Within smaller organizations merely using Scrum can help. In more convoluted cultures, re-discovering
your magic, your genius is significantly more challenging.
Breaking free from historical protocols, processes and structures is like breaking free from the gravity of
your unwanted past. It requires a potent force.
I'll describe one approach where you and your colleagues might attain escape velocity. It's deceptively
simple, respectful and attractive.

Summary: If your life were summarized on a movie poster, what would it say? We ask Agile leaders and ScrumMasters to be Servant Leaders, Impediment removers, Coaches, Educators and Evangelists, and Shepherds and guardians of the process (I use acrostic SLICES) as well as organizational change agents. Those are exciting aspects that go beyond our HR titles, but it’s a tall order – how do we make that actionable, part of us? How do we weave these into a story? Our careers are not our stories. Our stories come from who we are and we are bigger than our jobs. If we are only what we do for a living, we are smaller than our potential, yet we can use this radical new role of Agile leader or ScrumMaster as a means of connecting to, and leveraging at work, an opportunity to grow.
