  • The Power of Coaching: How to inspire the people around you [Mountain View]

    by Athena Katsaros and Kate Roeske

    Track: Lead with Confidence

    A key role of a manager is to create an environment that is inspiring for everyone in it. One crucial means of doing so is interacting with your team members, peers, and other important people in a way that brings out their best, encourages them to take ownership of their challenges, and dramatically enhances your relationships with them. That’s what this interactive session is all about. You will:
    * Assess yourself on 8 key leadership competencies and choose an area to work on to increase your effectiveness
    * Watch a coaching demonstration
    * Learn how to use a "coach approach" to managing
    * Come away with new skills and ideas you can put into practice right away

    [This is the only instance of this session]

    At 9:00am to 10:00am, Tuesday 13th September

  • Negotiation as Code: Learning to De-Bug our Conversations [Paris]

    by David Eaves

    Track: Lead with Confidence

    Everybody at Mozilla negotiates. Whether dealing with contributors, asking the security team to prioritize a patch, or convincing your dad that making free software is a valid career choice. For many, however, negotiating remains a dark art: a skill you are born with, or stumble into.
    It need not be this way.
    In this workshop negotiation expert and Mozilla community member David Eaves will share how there is a code for effective negotiations.
    Specifically, you will learn:
    * A framework for understanding negotiations
    * Common reasons why conversations fail
    * Some basic skills to improve conversations and negotiations, at home and work

    [Also presented 10:30-12:30 on Wednesday and 10:30-12:30 on Thursday]

    At 10:30am to 12:30pm, Tuesday 13th September

  • New Habits of Mind for New Solutions [Czech Republic]

    by Steve Byers

    Track: Lead with Confidence

    Human organizations face complex challenges. Leaders often have a poor understanding of such challenges. New learning is required to devise effective responses. Systems thinking is one way to acquire such learning.
    In this interactive workshop you will apply certain thinking habits in order to gain a deeper understanding of patterns that you would like to change. Using inquiry based on ―open and clean‖ questions, you will explore how to:
    * Increase systems awareness
    * Lower the waterline‖ to focus on deep structural change
    You will then be able to shift your thinking, see yourself and your relationships in a new way, and ask better questions in response to complex challenges.

    [Also presented 10:30-12:30 on Wednesday and 10:30-12:30 on Thursday]

    At 10:30am to 12:30pm, Tuesday 13th September

  • The Art of Possibility: Inspiring Others [Berlin]

    by Rose Singer

    Track: Lead with Confidence

    How you show up matters. You can’t beg, bribe or force others to get on board with your vision, ideas or requests. Enrolling others is an art form that – when done well – brings a high-level of commitment, engagement and extraordinary results. This session will focus on leadership as a way of being. You will learn how a master conductor brings out the best in others and how you can do that too.
    Through exercises, video and conversation, you will learn:
    * The importance of leading from the inside out
    * How to create the "possibility" for others to shine
    * How to enroll others to engage fully

    [Also presented 10:30-12:30 on Wednesday]

    At 10:30am to 12:30pm, Tuesday 13th September
