BECF Session: The Emporer’s New Clothes
Friday, May 11, 2012 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM (PDT)
The Emporer’s New Clothes - Meaningful interactions in stressfull situations
See the Emperor in all his glory! We all interact with different types of characters in our daily lives, which may lead to stressful situations. Therefore it's important for all of us to learn together how to communicate more effectively, especially at times of stress.
Doing the wrong thing or saying the wrong thing could result in failing our goal. Actually, when we do the wrong thing or say the wrong thing, this creates even more stress, which causes us to say even more the wrong things …
In this session we learn about congruence, the antidote to miscommunication and misunderstanding arising from stressful situations.
“The Emperor's new clothes” is an agile fairytale developed by Portia Tung and Jenny Jepsen. Fairytales are a great source of learning for kids since a long, long time ago. Agile fairytales are a playful way to understand aspects of applied theories for us. More info here.
Curious? Join us!
The magic formula: 1 Fairytale + 1 Model + Applied Theory = Happy Ending.
This session takes place with special thanks to Portia Tung. I've learned this approach from her, when she hosted it for us - a bunch of senior consultants and change makers at Play4Agile this year. It was great fun and learning for all.
