Did you recently joined a new team?
Do you plan to join a new team in the next years?
Do you plan to welcome a new team member in your team, in the comming year?
If you said yes to one (or more) of these questions, you should come to this session and you will learn about the power that a junior team member has.
A power that that senior's don't have. A power that will help you to grow yourself and your team.

  7. 7. Speed of your team?7 7
  8. 8. Speed of your team? This presentation is about teams. What does a new kid bring to your team. Before we can discuss this, we should think about what is the speed of the team?8 8
  9. 9. Speed of the slowest!9
  10. 10. Speed of the slowest! Too many people think that the velocity of the team is influenced only about the fastest on the team. In reality the slowest person has a lot of influence on the speed.10
  11. 11. How can I go faster?11
  12. 12. How can I go faster? Ok, so I’m new in my team. By definition I will be amoungst the slowest people. How can I speed up myself and my team?12
  13. 13. Beginner’s mind @gdinwiddie13
  14. 14. Beginner’s mind @gdinwiddie Beginners have a more open worldview. A lot of seniors think they have the solution before they understand the problem. Beginners keep their options open.(They have no14 other choice.)
  15. 15. Stay out of the boxes!15 @JurgenLACoach
  16. 16. Stay out of the boxes! To do outside-the-box thinking, you need to see the box you are in. New people are usually in less boxes and see the boxes they were in before clearer.16 @JurgenLACoach
  17. 17. Talk about THE elephant17 @NativeWired
  18. 18. Talk about THE elephant Every organisation has it’s own elephant. Things we no longer see. New people see the elephant and should question the elephant.18 @NativeWired
  19. 19. Say what you see19 19 @tonyxzt
  20. 20. Say what you see Sometimes you see things that you are not allowed to talk about. It takes an innocent kid to question the naked king.20 20 @tonyxzt
  21. 21. Say what you see You might think people don’t like when you say the truth. Reality is, we need more people who do this, not less.21 21 @tonyxzt
  22. 22. Experiment, you can (still) be wrong22 @EFranchomme
  23. 23. Experiment, you can (still) be wrong It’s ok to be wrong when you are new. Try stuff. It’s easier now then in 6 months.23 @EFranchomme
  24. 24. YES you can24
  25. 25. YES you can When you are new, you wil try things that ‘seniors ‘ might call dangerous or25 stupid. You will get things done.
  26. 26. Ask ‘stupid’ questions26 @YvesHanoulle
  27. 27. Ask ‘stupid’ questions ‘Stupid’ questions don’t exist. It’s normal you don’t know When you are new, you wil try things that ‘seniors ‘ might anything when you are new. Some seniors will actually be call dangerous or stupid. You will get things done. happy when you ask questions they are afraid to ask.27 @YvesHanoulle
  28. 28. Keep doing this!28 @YvesHanoulle
