The Four Fears that Undermine Agility (Ryan Gottfredson)

Nearly all organizations value agility. Most organizations implement agile practices. But, few organizations, or teams within organizations, are truly agile. What prevents organizations from being truly agile is an unseen force that is commonly unexplored and unaddressed, but runs rampant in organizations and amongst their leaders and employees. That unseen force is self-protective fears. In this session, Ryan Gottfredson will (1) identify the most common self-protective fears that exist within organizations, (2) explain why these fears commonly exist, and (3) provide direction on how to uproot and limit these fears to unlock the level of agility organizations desire.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of both the psychology and neuroscience associated with agility
  • Be able to identify the most common fears that prevent agility
  • Be empowered to uproot the fears that undermine agility and elevate agility through vertical development
