Prominent Agile Leadership Author & Speaker, Christopher Avery Ph.D., in conjunction with Agile University, will be holding a 3-day intensive called Knowledge Team Leadership in Santa Clara, CA, on February 23-26, 2008.
Knowledge Team Leadership -- The Art & Science of Being Effective in Any Team is a 3-day experiential intensive where participants learn, apply and enjoy the immediate change of mindset and behavior that produces team results. They learn the "personal agility" approach for building any team any time, how to create and be in a high-performance team of goodwill, cooperation and trust that produces abundant results for the individual, the team and their customers.

Past participants agree that the material learned in this seminar is personally life changing and effective for their overall team.
"I was a director at Verizon Wireless when I attended with my four managers. Attending as a team had a tremendous impact on us. We became dramatically more effective and productive," Clare Huspeni, Midwest Division VP Customer Care, Charter Communications said. "Each of my managers' departments became more effective and productive as well. For instance, the five of us challenged ourselves to be 100 percent responsible for our own communication, our own actions and our own results (as well as collective results). It raised the standard for how we worked together. We had far more open and trusting dialog. We did a much better job of getting aligned with each other. We improved our planning and our execution because we operated with more clarity, more intention and cleaner relationships."
"I attended Knowledge Team Leadership with my department. We left immediately more effective and efficient. Our most obvious and lasting change is how we keep each other informed, address emerging issues and make decisions. Now, years after we attended and even though team members have turned over, our meetings and other communications are highly respectful, more open and better focused. We make better and faster decisions and people operate with greater clarity and a sense of alignment. And, the benefits continue. One of my team leads who didn't even attend with us still goes to your website today to pull tips off of it to help the process of developing teams and pulling team members together." -- Jeff H. Zon, Director IT, Whole Foods Market Corporation
The next session of Knowledge Team Leadership will be held in Santa Clara, CA, February 26-28, 2008. Upcoming sessions in 2008 will be held in London, England, Washington D.C., and Boulder, CO.
