Keynote: Clumsy Colossus or Gentle Giant?




As a product leader, you can have an outsized impact on those you lead. You can make or break the current chapter in an employee’s career. Your behaviour has a direct influence on the satisfaction and engagement that team members find in their work. The culture you foster has a huge impact on your team’s performance.

In this presentation we’ll look at some of the most common psychological responses in the workplace. We’ll talk about how leaders can use this knowledge to lead more productively. We’ll explore which group norms support the best team performance, and outline specific steps leaders can take to foster these norms in their own teams. Then we’ll discuss how to evaluate your efforts, what can get in the way of your best intentions, and what you can do about it.
