The ’T’ in ’Team’ – Wed 09/22, 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM EST.

About this Event

Ben Franklin. Leonardo da Vinci. Angela Merkel. Each has been described as a polymath, which Wikipedia defines as, “an individual whose knowledge spans a substantial number of subjects, known to draw on complex bodies of knowledge to solve specific problems.” While we can’t all attain recognition as a polymath, of course, we can focus on developing a certain set of skills that add value to our professional portfolio. More importantly, as agile leaders, coaches, and facilitators, we can nurture our teams to help them develop or expand their skills.

But wait, there’s more! In addition to discussing how to mentor and grow diverse skills in ourselves and our team members, we will also explore other “skill shapes” such as “M”, “Pi”, “E” and “Comb”

Discussion:
– What are the different skill types?
– How do we lead ourselves or our teams to identify possible skills to develop?
– What hidden talents or skills can we bring to the forefront?
– What opportunities can we seek to support skill enhancement?
– What might be the outcome of a team with diverse or more well-rounded skills?
