How to build (and retain) an amazing team - Andrew Harcourt

A session at DDD Perth 2016

Saturday 27th August, 2016

11:10am to 11:55am (WST)

Andrew Harcourt @uglybugger https://www.uglybugger.org/

"We hire only average people," said no company, ever. With so many guns, superstars, ninjas, full-stack thingamies and guru whatsits, why would they? Hiring great people is hard. Retaining them is extremely hard. And yet neither is complicated. There are a few simple things that your company can do to start attracting and retaining top talent.

This talk is about stories. Stories about people. Stories about situations. Stories about stories and the power they have to influence people, teams and culture.

Isn't it nice to wake up in the morning and feel happy about the day to come? Let's talk about how to create that - both for the people we want to hire and for ourselves.
