Ontario-based Agile coach Jennifer Willems was a featured speaker in the Launching New Voices program at the 2020 Business Agility Conference in New York City. She believes that a growth mindset is essential and the key to unblocking the path for achieving agility.
Willems takes us through her journey to becoming an agile coach and the lessons she learned along the way. Servant leadership is near and dear to her heart and you’ll hear real-life examples of what it does and doesn’t look like. She says servant leadership is something you are, not something you do.
Finally, Jen advises us to take time for introspection, picking apart the work we’ve done to understand what happened. This helps you see what you’ve gained from the experience and discover patterns that will help build your own awareness of your values and principles. To her, “The principles are a lot more important than the process and the practice.”
