Researchers at Harvard's department of Psychology did an experiment to see if individuals could guess what doctors had malpractice lawsuits against them. To do the experiment, the participants were only able to hear recordings of doctors voices. Not only that, but the words were warbled so all they could really hear was tone of voice. Despite having limited information the participants were able to accurately guess which doctors had past malpractice suits against them.

These days more and more of our interactions are not done face to face. We're increasingly having interactions via phone, web conferencing, email etc. Jeff Baird, certified body language trainer, will share ways that you can build trust and convey confidence with your nonverbal communication, even if you're not meeting in person.

He's ready to help you break through your career (or life) plateaus.

Implementing Agile So It Sticks - Using brain science and active engagement to embed change
Picture the last time you led a project that involved change. Did the plan you created and executed to perfection lead to changes that are still in place in the organization? If not, don't worry. Managing change is a skill that requires practice, but there are a few tips and tricks that can help ensure your changes stick…and many of them are already hidden in an agile approach to managing projects.

Join expert agile change management facilitator Barbee Davis to learn why you should consider every project a change project. In this 90 minute hands-on tutorial, Barbee shares the latest research on how our brains function and demonstrates how to use this knowledge to transform your work, introduce new ideas, embed them within your organization, motivate people to change—and maintain those changes long after the project has wrapped up. These lessons are key for competing in a fast-paced marketplace, and creating happy customer employees who understand and support the organization.

What you’ll learn—and how you can apply it
By the end of this live online course, you’ll understand:
● The latest research on how brains function and the specific ways people are engaged, learn, and motivated to adopt new behaviors.
● Why this research is at odds with the ways we currently introduce and implement change in our organizations.
And you’ll be able to:
● Apply the latest research on brain function to construct ways to ensure people internalize and act on new ideas in order to maximize success in change projects,
● Understand why agile is so successful and how to use it and its hidden hooks,
● Move from PowerPoint to people-pointed presentations,
● Assist your organization in achieving its strategic objectives through more-skilled change practices,
● Be creative in building internal meeting processes, resulting in happy employees who understand and support the organizational goals.

This course is for you because…

● You're an Agile team member, Agile Lead, or Scrum Master who wants to change the behavior of others.
● You're a Project Manager with a traditional team who wants to change the behavior of your team, your managers, or your customers.
● You are working to create a hybrid Agile/Waterfall team.
● You lead a team involved with a change-centric project.
● You're a business analyst, manager, product owner, or customer working with project teams, and you need to change the behavior of your employees or customers.

Prerequisites:

● Experience implementing change in your organization (successfully or not).
● A need to lead change projects in the future – and remember, all projects are change projects.

Required materials and setup:

● A pencil and paper to use for exercises,

● A Post-it note with three specific challenges you’re facing with a change you are trying to implement, stuck to the bottom of your monitor,
● Printouts of exercises.

Barbee Davis is an author and international speaker in the fields of Agile and Project Management. Barbee's calling is to use her own knowledge and experience to help others successfully transition from the clean-cut theory learned in training, to the often shocking reality of putting those methods into messy, frustrating practice in real life. Her latest book is Adding Agile to Waterfall Projects: Shifting Processes for Competitive Advantage. She also formulates tough, real-life type questions you may encounter in the workplace and allows you to check your own knowledge via four possible answers. Once you have chosen, Barbee then shares her idea of the best approach and further advice on agile and project management-related topics in her twice-a-month feature, Topic Teasers, for Projectmanagement.com, read by almost 400,000 people worldwide. Barbee is a certified Project Manager, Agile project manager, and Business Analyst through the Project Management Institute; she holds the PMP®, PMI-ACP®, and PMI-PBA® certifications.

The agile community has made great strides in improving the quality and speed of product delivery, evolving toward continuous delivery. What about product discovery? Can we align continuous product delivery with continuous product delivery? It is possible to overcome the immutable fact that product requirements are the source of so much uncertainty and waste? Can we balance satisfying customers with improving product viability through continuous product discovery? 

In my work with many product and engineering organizations, I have learned some key principles and practices that enlighten and energize product discovery. These include setting product context, clarifying outcomes and validation tests, amplifying collaboration, using Structured Conversations with Discovery Boards, and injecting visual models—with and beyond stories and story maps—to build shared understanding of the product. Indeed, agile discovery can accelerate delivery and help build better high-value products.

“If you want something done ask a busy person to do it.” That’s a favorite chestnut when it comes to time management. As project managers, we are busy people: constant demands from stakeholders, team and client meetings, reports to create, and analysis of what’s happening in the project. Project managers know that it’s all about getting things done; there’s no value in reports, meetings, and emails if they don’t create results.
In this presentation, Joseph Phillips will share some proven time management techniques to get more done in less time. We’ll explore some tools that you can take back and apply immediately to your work. Invest one hour in this session, utilize the tools, and then reap the rewards.

Schedule your time now to attend this fantastic presentation.
