I will offer the opportunity to engage in a personal retrospective. A ritual inspired by the agile ceremony that I have found to be meaningful in working with teams and personally. It is based on reflection and intention.
I will share some practices and tools I have found to be meaningful in my experience.
What about the so called soft skills, female intuition and emotional aspects of women? These are often unwelcome and even considered a waste of time by teams in technical domains.
I will explore the resistance by so called ‘technical’ people in the ‘logic’ dominated arena of IT work to:
- meaningful conversation and technical jargon,
- Emotion (warm and fuzzy) and connection and maybe even
- Fear and learning, unlearning and experimentation
It is my intention that we as a group can leave the space with some practical ways to be more confident, intentional and congruent in our interactions, contributions and participation on technical teams and projects by engaging in reflection.
